in the sport of basketball, whenever a player makes 3 consecutive baskets from down town (3 3pointers) he/she has entered what is known as Heat Check Time. Heat Check Time entitles that specific player to the right of shooting the ball from anywhere and not be called a ball hog.
wow Vince just made 3 threes in a row... "HEAT CHECK TIME". "everyone pass it to him" ... (Vince then continues the streak to 7 in a row because of HEAT CHECK TIME)
