From... way... down... town... bang.

Los Angeles Lakers rookie guard Darius Morris hit a crazy buzzer-beating three-pointer to close out the first quarter of a Saturday night showdown with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Morris received an inbounds pass with 1.7 seconds left, took one dribble to elude Clippers All-Star guard Chris Paul, and heaved up a one-handed shot as he leaned left in mid-air.  The shot went straight in, much to the delight of the Staples Center crowd. The shot cut the Clippers' lead to 31-24 at the end of one quarter.

Morris, 21, was the Lakers' second round pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, selected with the No. 41 overall pick out of the University of Michigan.

Here's the video of Los Angeles Lakers rookie guard Darius Morris nailing a 50-foot buzzer-beater against the Clippers.
