New Orleans Pelicans accidentally score bucket for Timberwolves (GIF)

The New Orleans Pelicans are a team with lung talent trying to get better. The Minnesota Timberwolves were once the what the Pelicans are now but are an example of what happens when that talent either doesn’t develop or doesn’t mesh. The Wolves have had a hard time lately as they’ve lost a lot of close games this season.

But one way to win a game is to be abler o score points and an easy way to score points is to have the other team score those points for you. That was the case on Wednesday night when Greg Stiemsma accidentally scored on his own basket.


Stiemsma used to play for the Timberwolves, so we can just assume he lost his barring and was having a flashback to his days with the Wolves.
