Oklahoma City Thunder forward Terrance Ferguson just wanted to do his best to defend on this play. Oh well.
As the Thunder took on the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday night, Ferguson bit on a Solomon Hill pump fake at the baseline, jumping over him in the process as he tried to block the New Orleans big man.
It didn’t go as planned, but you can’t fault him for trying.
Ferguson was assessed a foul on the play, but it makes you wonder: If you could clear a guy without touching him, would it be a foul?
Hard to say.
