Storyline

Frasier receives tickets to the Sonics game and goes with Martin and Niles (even though he and Niles actually had other plans). Niles is selected to attempt the halftime half-court shot, and miraculously makes it. He shamelessly drinks in the adoration of Martin and the rest of Seattle, much to Frasier's chagrin.

Trivia

When Martin (John Mahoney) apologises to Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) saying, "Well, last October you said we would go to a game together, but I thought that was just a lot of talk," this refers to episode 8.3, Frasier: The Bad Son (2000), which aired the previous October, in which Frasier, in telling Martin he doesn't want him to move to the retirement home, says that he wants them to do more things together, including going to Sonics games.

[Niles is wearing a complimentary letterman jacket]

Dr. Niles Crane: Yes, but it's not a real varsity jacket, Roz, so you're under no obligation to sleep with me.
[she smiles]
Roz Doyle: See you around.
Dr. Niles Crane: Take care.

Redemption once again for Season 8. Loved this one

In this episode, Niles and Frasier accompany Martin to a Sonics game, but Niles is selected to do a half-court shot, he makes it, miraculously, and Frasier gets jealous.

Great episode, go watch.
