After Udonis Haslem missed his first free throw with 17.4 seconds left Wednesday, the Atlanta Hawks crowd got onto its feet.
The game was already long over — the Heat up by 30 at that point — but the crowd that stayed might have gotten a small consolation prize if Haslem bricked his second attempt from the free-throw line.
The Hawks have a promotion where fans in the arena receive a free sandwich from Chick-fil-A if an opposing player misses both of his free throw attempts on any given trip.
Haslem apparently wasn’t in a charitable mood, sinking his second attempt straight through the net. After he made the shot, Haslem pointed his right hand straight to the sky and put his finger over his mouth to hush the crowd. The Heat went on to win 115-86 for the team’s most lopsided win of the season.

The Heat had fun with Haslem’s pseudo-heroics as well — and made a not-so-subtle reminder that Heat fans can receive half off an order at Papa John’s on Thursday because Miami won the game.
