The Oklahoma City Thunder took on the Utah Jazz on Tuesday night. At one point Thunder point guard Reggie Jackson was at the line to take a freethrow when a fan came up with an unusual way to distract him.
As Jackson is preparing to shoot, the fan throws up a basketball like mask directly behind the backboard. It almost looks like a real basketball.
Thunder head coach Scott Brooks wasn’t too thrilled and can be seen complaining in the video below. The Jazz went on to win the game despite a 48 point performance from Kevin Durant.
“We fought. We fought, but we can’t play just one quarter every game. We made too many mental mistakes and they capitalized on them,” Durant said.
The Jazz got a big game from Gordon Hayward who had 37 points and 11 rebounds and seven assists.
“How about Gordon! He was huge. I mean we needed every last basket he made for us,” Utah coach Tyrone Corbin said.
