Found April 18, 2013 on Next Impulse Sports:
The Nets and Pistons faced off on Tuesday night and during the game Mirza Teletovic learned a very important lesson about when to tie his shoe. As both teams lined up for a free throw, Mirza must have thought it was two instead of one attempts because he bent over to tie his shoe just as Kim English shot his free throw. As Mirza tied his shoe, Andre Drummond was treated with one of the easier dunks of his life. The Nets beat the Pistons by a score of 103-99. We are fairly positive that Greg Smith saw this and was smiling from ear to ear. [The Brooklyn Game] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
