Nobody gets bizzy quite like Bones Hyland and the young Nuggets guard did his thing Tuesday night in the Brotherly Love Pro-am League.

Near his home city of Wilmington, Hyland cooked in Philadelphia’s top. Pro-Am League, going for 46 points, six assists and four rebounds. The highlights from the effort are below.

The best part of Hyland’s efforts, though was his game-winner, which he hit in a sick fashion. Hyland had the chance to win the match by shooting free throws. He missed them on purpose, then told the fans to get on their feet before pulling up from almost half court to hit a buzzer-beater, giving his F.O.E. team the win. You can watch that sequence below.

Hyland just finished his rookie season out of VCU, getting better with each passing game. He finished the year averaging 10 points, three rebounds and three assists per game on 37% from deep. His summer is off to a fun start, with his Pro-Am performance and he released a new song.
