A Worcester man won 25,000 after sinking a half-court shot at the Boston Celtics game Tuesday night, according to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette.

21-year-old Angel Martinez was the only one of ten shooters to make the shot during halftime of the C's 99-82 win over the Sixers.

At first, it shocked me, he told the paper. I thought I was going to get disqualified because I went over the line, but Lucky the Celtics mascot said I was good.

Martinez has a wife and two kids and is planning to put the money to good use.

I'll put a little away for my kids, Martinez said, and I'll put a down payment on a house.
