Sixers’ Tony Wroten hits 3/4-court shots in consecutive games (VIDEO)

Normally I think shots from half-court or longer aren’t worth the highlight, unless of course it’s a game-winner or something like that.

It’s just that while plenty of NBA players can hit ’em, they’re such low-percentage looks that they’re usually more about luck than they are about skill.

Tony Wroten, however, got lucky two nights in a row, and did so from 3/4-court distance.

The play above came to beat the third quarter buzzer in Friday night’s loss to the Lakers.

The one below came two nights earlier in a loss to the Celtics, also to end the third, and from nearly just as far away.

    You do that 2 nights in a row it’s not luck, it’s skill. I used to practice those shots from the same distance and I got good enough to hit those 1-5/6 times. You take enough of those shots you get used to it, that and a bit of skill. I would also hit halfcourt shots using a set-shot. Some people just got a good eye for distance, don’t hate on Tony!
