Drummond Redefines 'Hoop-&-Harm' ... 12 Times in a Row
First, there was Hack-a-Shaq.
Now, thanks to a technique perfected by Houston's KJ McDaniels, there's a new version of it.
Here it is, making its world debut last night when the Rockets met Detroit and chose to compromise the Pistons' possessions by preying upon by charity-stripe challenged Andre Drummond:

Do know that once McDaniels' completed his duties, Detroit did this seven more times. Straight. Making it an even dozen.
And for the record, Drummond clanged 11 of 16 free throws in the third quarter.

In the meantime, the game -- and the Drum -- abides.
Maybe in the next lifetime.
Clang on, dude.
