Taj Gibson’s full-court heave confuses Jimmy Butler

Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sports

Teammates for most of this decade, Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler probably aren’t capable of surprising each other on the court much. But Gibson certainly tried to as the first-half buzzer sounded tonight.

The Minnesota Timberwolves forward offered a last-second heave so inadequate it confused his teammate to the point he had to say something. That turned out to be some amusing profanity captured (sort of) on national television.

That rebound gave Gibson a double-double by halftime against the Los Angeles Clippers, but his hopeless attempt at an 85-foot shot stole the show. And he obviously realized it, illustrated by his awkward jog off the Staples Center floor.
