According to the video on Twitter, a fun event was held in between a basketball match at the home court of Trail Blazers. The winner of the event was offered $50,000 for the purchase of a new house. The task was to make a putt from one baseline to the other. Generally, the distance from one baseline to the other on an indoor court is 94 feet.
