Matt Barnes Launched This Would-Be Alley-Oop Right Into The Goal For Three

Life has a way of working out sometimes. That’s what happened to Matt Barnes on Sunday night during the Kings-Nets game when he tried to throw an alley-oop to Rudy Gay but instead just lobbed it right into the rim for three points. His reaction was, by far, the best part. Barnes, a grizzled veteran journeyman who’s seen it all during his oftentimes tumultuous career, was completely nonplussed.

The Kings would go on to win 122-105. Barnes finished with seven points, four rebounds, and six assists, while Gay, who was so rudely robbed of a potential highlight-reel dunk, had 22 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists.
