Watch Nets’ Mirza Teletovic airball three straight shots

Feb 7, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

It was a one-point game early in the fourth quarter when Brooklyn’s Mirza Teletovic put on an impressive shooting display. Not in a good way, but impressive nonetheless.

He airballs three straight shots, all inside a minute of game time.

The Bosnian rookie is not exactly a sharpshooter, hitting 37.2 percent of his shots this season, but he is shooting 35.6 percent from three. He’s useful on the pick-and-pop — he can knock that down. Well, normally he can hit that shot. But there was clearly a draft near the Nets basket inside the Palace at Auburn Hills. Right?

Hat tip to Sports Illustrated’s The Point Forward for the video.

    Oh boy… if he is able to adjust his game from the european style for the NBA style, he could help his team. He averaged 21.7 ppg in 43.1 % from the 3 point line in the 2011-2012 Euroleague, he is no scrub!

    They were all bad, but tfirst was the worst. Not only short but wide right.

    Mirza Teletovic’s stat line last night:

    4 minutes, 0pts on 0-3 shooting, 0 rebounds, 0 assists, 0 blocks, 0 steals. I’d be more impressed if he got the elusive “trillion” stat.
