Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd caused a delay in the final minutes of the Nets’ 99-94 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers when Tyshawn Taylor ran into him, causing him to spill his drink.

Kidd explained what happened to the New York Post‘s Tim Bontemps after the game: ”Cup slipped out of my hand I was getting Ty,” Kidd said. “Sweaty palms. I was never good with the ball.In the heat of the battle, you’re trying to get guys in and out of the game, and the cup fell out of my hand.”

Video shows that Kidd may have said, “Hit me,” asking Taylor to bump him intentionally, as it was prior to a crucial free throw in a two-point game with the Nets out of timeouts.
