Houston Rockets rookie power forward Chinanu Onuaku made his season debut in Monday night's NBA game against Phoenix and did not hesitate to use his unusual underhand method of shooting free throws when given the opportunity.

Onuaku switched to the underhand method after shooting very poorly during his freshman year at Louisville, and the switch improved his free throw percentage significantly. On this occasion, Onuaku made both free throws, so if it works, why not?
Onuaku scored six points and grabbed three rebounds in eight minutes as the Rockets beat the Suns 131-115.
