The Indiana Pacers obliterated the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night, improving their record to an outstanding 14-1.
Clearly, basketball has come easy to the Pacers – so easy in fact they might be moonlighting in acting classes. At least big man Ian Mahinmi, who had a flop for the ages during the Pacers blowout victory.
With Indiana leading by nine points in the third quarter, the Pacers brought the ball up court. Lance Stephenson found himself open on the wing and decided to fire up an uncontested three-point shot. It didn’t go, but thankfully Mahinmi was under the hoop, where he was able to fight for the rebound.
He gave it a good go but once he realized he wasn’t going to secure the board, he did want any good basketball player would do. Flop in the most ridiculous of fashions. Mahinmi went so far as to add a spin move in the flop, which sent the announce team into mild hysterics.
