While Stephen Curry did suffer an ankle injury during the first half of Thursday’s game between the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors, it wasn’t all bad for the reigning NBA champions.

On one big play Klay Thompson set up Javale McGee with a nifty behind-the-back pass. Rotating over was Spurs forward Davis Bertans, who mid-jump seemed to recognize the error of his ways.

While McGee did get two points for the emphatic finish, he also picked up a technical foul for taunting Bertans.
