ATLANTA – Norman Bethea came to play on Thursday.

No, he’s not a Hawks player but a lucky fan who made the best shot of the night.

Bethea is one of only two fans to ever make a half-court shot in Phillips Arena, according to the Atlanta Hawks. The last half-court shot was made in the last seven games, too.
