Martell Webster Boneheaded Play Against The Nuggets [VIDEO]
Quick math lesson; when you’re down by three points with 4.9 seconds remaining, a slam dunk really doesn’t help you. Martell Webster learned this on Monday night. Luke Ridnour’s reaction is classic.
Martell Webster made a boo-boo on Monday night for the Minnesota Timberwolves. The T-Wolves were trailing the Denver Nuggets by three points with only 4.9 seconds remaining. To make things worse, Minnesota didn’t even have the ball. Webster initially made a nice play by stealing the ball. However, Webster took it the distance and jammed home a basket to cut the deficit to 102-101. The only problem was that only 0.5 seconds were left in the game.
I love the reaction by Webster’s teammate Luke Ridnour. He makes a shooting motion like, “Dude, we’re down by three points, man. You can’t go for a dunk. You gotta shoot a 3-pointer, bud.” The reaction by Minnesota’s bench is pretty funny too. Head coach Rick Adelman and the players on the bench all look like they’re thinking, “Seriously?” Good stuff.
