Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon decided to take in some basketball action on Thursday night.
The baseball star was in attendance as the Denver Nuggets hosted the Memphis Grizzlies at the Pepsi Center.
Despite the home team going down to a 102-101 defeat in a nail-biting contest, Blackmon provided one of the highlights of the night during half-time.
The Rockies hero showed his pin-point accuracy by making an incredible half-court shot – BACKWARDS!
The crowd erupted after Blackmon made the unbelievable basket, as did those on the court who soon rushed to celebrate with him.
You can check it out in the video below.

The Nuggets are at home again this Sunday as they host the Pistons, while the Grizzlies make the trip to face the Timberwolves.
It goes without saying, both games would need to come up with something pretty special to beat the events of Thursday night.
