Video: Cavs’ Kevin Love still has a third free throw but players, officials hilariously resume play already
The Cleveland Cavaliers versus Washington Wizards match just gave us another “Shaqtin’ a Fool” nominee. Kevin Love didn’t get much love from the officials on Friday night after being on the short end of the stick of a hilarious gaffe at the Capital One Arena.
The 31-year old stretch big was due to shoot three free-throws after getting fouled from behind the arc. He missed his second attempt, which was immediately cleared by rookie Rui Hachimura and was passed off to Isaiah Thomas who proceeded to bring the ball down.
The defense soon followed, as everyone except Love raced down to the other end of the floor.

A puzzled Love quickly signaled to the officials that he still has one more shot left, prompting referees to reset the play and give Love his final attempt.
After playing in just 22 regular season games last year, Love has bounced back nicely for the Cavs so far, leading the team in points (18.9), rebounds (14.4), assists (4.1) and steals (1.0) in the first seven games.
