Chen we thought we had seen everything in the NBA, the cameras have captured an image that until now we thought was unusual in the best league in the world. With less than 6 minutes to go in the clash between the Washington Wizards and the Brooklyn Nets, the assistant coach of the New Yorkers, David Vanterpool, became the main protagonist of it.
The former CSKA Moscow player recalled his time as a player and cut a pass from Spencer Dinwiddie to Kyle Kuzma in the midst of a comeback for the capital team (101-106 for the Nets at the time) who ended up losing at home by a single point difference.
Kuzma himself, who couldn’t believe the referee’s passivity on the court, exploded in the press room after seeing how the action went unpunished: “It’s bullshit! The coaches shouldn’t be able to get up. Everyone was on their feet, including Steve Nash, which blocked the referee’s view.”
The Brooklyn Nets survived two 3-pointers in the final seconds from the Washington Wizards to earn an away victory thanks to Kyrie Irving and his 30 points, 3 rebounds and 7 assists.
