Gotta hand it to UH reserve guard Niko Filipovich in the Warrior win over Long Beach. Yeah, he missed both this long distance bombs, but he took the shots without hesitation. The close misses kept the Beach defenders honest and couldn’t slack off on defense.
But of course, #2’s highlight was his closing seconds drive to finish the first half. In 7 seconds and three dribbles, Niko drove past all Long Beach defenders for a layup that ignited the players and fans.
