The shot from midfield, with a prize pool, is a tradition in many rooms in the NBA. With $15,000, $20,000 or $50,000 up for grabs. But not in Indiana. In the lair of the Pacers, the game is a little different. Earnings too. A fan must return in quick succession a free throw, a three-pointer and a shot from the middle of the field. With several attempts, of course, but a time that limits it. And one of the franchise supporters managed to put all three on last night. He won $500. Yes, $500. Maybe it barely reimburses tickets for the game depending on where it was seated.

Well, at least he celebrated like he’d hit the jackpot.
