By the 10:51 mark of the first quarter, D’Angelo Russell was in the opponent’s area and forced a foul on Bruce Brown, which compelled Russell to have two free throw shots. Kevin Hart started cracking jokes after the first try at a free throw went wrong.

I shot 99% from the line, when I played in the Church League. I can give you Deacon Johnson's number, I can give you Pastor Rob's number... my numbers were strong. 99% from the line.

Furthermore, his watch stream co-hosts asked about his numbers in the church league he played in.

 I think my final season before I retired I averaged six points, 32 assists, seven steals. When you are passing to the Lord, no one can hardly stop you.

Kevin Hart certainly brings color into this kind of watch party. He joined other players on The Ringer’s All-Time list including Nelly, Arne Duncan, Brian McKnight, Terrell Owens, and Jason Sudeikis.
