Metta World Peace amused by "Hack-a-Metta"

February 21, 2012 |  4:10 pm

It appeared a double-digit Lakers victory Monday over Portland was all but inevitable.

That is until the Trail Blazers adopted a "Hack-a-Metta" strategy, in the hope Metta World Peace's 51.1% mark at the free-throw line would work in their favor. Instead, World Peace's six points in the Lakers 103-92 victory came mostly came from hitting four of six shots at the stripe. He was one for four from the field.

"It never happened,  but that was awesome," World Peace said. "I wasn't planning on scoring no more in that game. I was planning on just playing defense and passing the ball. I was cool with two points, but they gave me six. I'm like, cool. I got six points today. I'm very happy about that."
