Tony Parker hits crazy circus shot in win over Warriors (VIDEO)

May 11, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

I’m not even sure what to call this. Is it a flip shot? A push shot? A shovel shot? Whatever it you want to call it, it was amazing.

Tony Parker was the offensive catalyst for the Spurs’ game 3 win over the Warriors and hitting shots like this one was one of the reasons why. Parker was aggressive all night in looking for his own shot and when he wasn’t knocking down jumpers, he was driving to the basket and making things happen in the paint.

And while you don’t expect him to hit shots like that one very often, it just goes to show how much of a knack he has for finishing in the paint. I guess he shot 69% at the rim this year for a reason.

    Call it a “Ginobili-shot”.

    Except Ginobili would have busted his nose and bled all over the floor just for dramatic effect. And then kept playing with a giant band-aid covering his face and scored 25 more points, including a game-winning three. And then would have told reporters after the game “that’s just what I do”.

    I think a “sideways, off-balance push shot” probably comes closest to describing it.

    Nice play.
