Andre Drummond hits full court shot [VIDEO]


As the always-brilliant announcers described, "He had his eyes on the prize and let it fly!"

Pistons All-Star center Andre Drummond hit an insane, practically full-court shot during Monday night's game at The Palace against the Toronto Raptors. According to ESPN stats, at 71 feet, it's the longest shot that's been made in the last eight seasons. By anyone. 

So, thanks Andre, you lessened the blow of getting our asses kicked (again) and helped us forget (at least for a few moments) that we're in the midst of the worst slump in the season. 

Watch the shot below and feel a bit of Pistons pride.
