Fan hits halfcourt shot at Clippers game to win new car … on his birthday (video)

Keep casting up those halfcourt bombs at the end of practice, kids — you never know when that might pay off. It did for Chance Lavitch of Cheviot Hills on Monday, as he got a chance to shoot from halfcourt for a new Jeep Cherokee, and made the shot. On his 21st birthday, no less. And it was only appropriate that he did it on April 16, which was the day before taxes are due. He’s going to owe a lot next year.

But how can you complain? The opportunity to hear the crowd roar for you is worth it all by itself.

    Awesome. Love when stuff like this happens.

    Course stories like these are usually followed by a story 6 months later with the headline “Winner of Half Court Shot Jeep, Arrested for DUI.”

    Cheers to you Mr. Lavitch.
