I heard the phrase "bury a jumper" in an NBA game. I googled it, and found:
According to this site:
bury a jumper: To make an especially pretty jump shot.
According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, here bury means:
sports : to succeed emphatically or impressively in making (a shot)
I'm curious about where did this usage of bury come from? How does it relate to the word's originial meaning?
