Evan Turner apologizes for last-second dunk against Lakers

With his team up by five points with only a few seconds remaining in Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers, Evan Turner of the Philadelphia 76ers threw down a monster dunk in the open court.

Check it out below.

While a spectacular play, Turner’s dunk could easily be construed as showboating. Most players tend to dribble out the clock in such situations, and Turner apologized for his minor breech of etiquette after the game.

Per CSN Philly:

I really thought there was 10 or 15 seconds left, so I didn’t think much of it until I came down. Then I saw that it was .4 seconds and then I realized I was trippin’. I apologized, and said I made a mistake. We are grown men. I shook hands. Nobody had anything to say so I am not going to worry too much about it.

Turner finished the game with 22 points, seven rebounds, and six assists. The victory marked only the second time this season Philadelphia has won on the road.
