A lucky fan from Long Island hit a half-court shot at the Knicks-Mavericks' game on Sunday to win a brand spankin' new car.  What car did he win?


Jeremy Lin was the main headline on Sunday.  Lin scored 28 points and had 14 assists as the New York Knicks beat the defending champion Dallas Mavericks 104-97.  However, Linsanity wasn't the only headline.  A guy named Mike Sapraicone of Seaford in Long Island hit a half-court shot during a timeout in the third quarter to win a brand new car.  Sapraicone won a new 2012 Kia Optima.

It also wasn't just one lucky heave that earned Sapraicone the keys to the new car.  He first had to hit five free throws to even have a chance at the half-court shot to win the car.  No bad, Mike, not bad.  Five free throws, a half-court heave, a brand new car, the crowd going crazy, and a hug with film director Spike Lee?  Nice job, bud.
