Pat Connaughton's three-point stroke is one of the sweetest in the entire 2015 draft class. The Portland Trail Blazers guard may not get much of an opportunity to show it off this year, but he sure made things count in the preseason.

The NBA released a highlight reel of the 10 best plays rookies made over the past few weeks, and to nobody's surprise Connaughton made the list with this incredibly clutch three against the Los Angeles Lakers.

It would've sent the game into overtime, but Ryan Kelly had to spoil the party by dunking on poor Noah Vonleh with only a couple seconds left in regulation.
