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.

Through a series of circumstances, Martie, Frasier, and Niles end up at a Sonics game. Niles, through a drawing, ends up taking a midcourt shot to win a truck. Of all things, he actually makes it. This leads to Frasier's usual jealousy and a funny scene at Martin's bar. Can you say, "Hand-Eye Coordination"? Not!
