Omer Asik scores on his own basket (Video)
We’ve seen this happen many times before, and it never gets old. Houston Rockets center Omer Asik accidentally scored on his own basket while trying to grab a rebound during his team’s 117-101 win over the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday.
Even with the gift, the 3-12 Raptors couldn’t capitalize. Asik finished with 13 points (not including the deuce for the opponent), and 18 rebounds. The third-year player from Turkey is actually third in the NBA in rebounds per game now that he’s getting a chance to start.
Congrats, Omer, you now have an embarrassing moment that tops the 0-point performance you had in your second career game with Houston.
