The Oklahoma City Thunder demolished the Portland Trailblazers on Monday night, 128-94.
The Thunder may have gotten a little overexcited in their celebrations, however, as center Steven Adams demonstrated while trying to copy the Golden State Warriors’ favorite celebration.
In the second quarter, Adams got an offensive rebound and hit Kevin Durant in the corner for a wide-open 3-pointer.
Once Adams passed it off, he turned his back on the shot and ran back on defense, assuming the shot was already made. Unfortunately for him, Durant missed it.
Durant is shooting almost 39% from 3-point range this season, a good number, so it’s hard to blame Adams, but it looks funny nonetheless.
As mentioned, the Warriors get away with this because, well, they get to pass it to Stephen Curry, a 46% 3-point shooter.
Andrew Bogut wasn’t even looking:
Draymond Green has also celebrated before the shot is up, though he didn’t take his eyes off the shot:
Going forward, Adams will have to be a little more reserved on shots he celebrates before they go in. For now, he joins Nick Young in the bad celebrations Hall of Fame.
