SALT LAKE CITY — Welcome to From Left Field! Here's four fun, exciting, and cool plays from the world of sports this weekend.

Neto's neato 360 flip shot

In what was eventually ranked as No. 2 out of 297 NBA games this season in terms of excitement, the Utah Jazz played the Indiana Pacers at Vivint Arena Saturday night, and ended up winning 122-119 in overtime. Here's's recap of the game.

One of the game's remarkable runs was at the beginning of the third quarter, when Jazz rookie point guard Raul Neto started to take over the game with fantastic assists and made baskets. The best of the bunch was this 360 degree no-look spin flip shot, that took place after he was fouled.

That's a pretty neato shot, Mr. Neto.

Antonio Brown's crazy celebration

The Pittsburgh Steelers where already beating the Indianapolis Colts handily on Sunday Night Football, but Antonio Brown's punt return touchdown put the icing on the cake.

It was Brown's third touchdown of the night, and well, apparently, he had run out of normal ways to celebrate. So he went straight for the goal post.

A couple of thoughts: first, that looks painful. I wouldn't advise it. Second, he earned an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for celebrating using the goalpost as a prop, which is a ridiculous rule. I will never understand why the NFL hates when its players look like they're having fun.

Cam Newton giving a free ball to fans, despite referee's attempt to be a Scrooge

Speaking of the NFL's blatant no-fun policies, here's another example! One fun Cam Newton thing is whenever he scores a touchdown, he delivers a football to Panthers fans sitting behind the end zone. Cool, right?

Well, this referee, who works for an organization that made over one billion dollars in profit last season, decided that the NFL needed to keep this ball. What's Newton to do?

Get the ball back and give it to a fan. Because that's what is right.

Cam Newton is the best. That's the Christmas spirit.

Goalkeeping error at the worst time

Sunday's sports action also featured the MLS Cup Final between the Columbus Crew and the Portland Timbers, which was legitimately a super exciting contest with crazy goals, near-goals, and some fun play between the two sides.

But the craziest moment came early in the game, when Crew goalie Steve Clark received a backpass and decided to take an extra touch before passing the ball to the sideline. That was a horrendous decision.

The Timbers' Diego Valeri was closing in, and fast, and ended up getting the incredibly easy goal just 27 seconds into the match! The goal would also prove wildly important, as the Timbers won 2-1 to win the MLS Cup. Not good, Clark.
