It’s Kevin Durant‘s Shaqtin moment.
In the first quarter of Game 1, a frustrated Durant (after a Khris Middleton bucket) absentmindedly throws an inbounds pass off the back of the backboard and out of bounds.

It was a rough start to the game for Brooklyn — Durant couldn’t inbound the ball, and James Harden left the court 43 seconds into the game with a hamstring injury.
It all worked out pretty well for the Nets, who ended up taking Game 1 anyway.
