Video: Udonis Haslem’s hilarious reaction to Wayne Ellington’s three
Throughout his NBA career, Udonis Haslem has often been seen playing with a lot of intensity on the court or giving fiery pep talks to his teammates on the bench. However on Wednesday, he showed off his playful side during their game versus the Portland Trail Blazers.
With the Miami Heat in the midst of a strong run in the second quarter, the veteran big man gave a hilarious reaction after Wayne Ellington knocked down a three-pointer. He pretended to faint and was even held up by his teammate, which brought a lot of laughs to the fans who saw him pull it off.

Despite leading big early in the game, the Heat were not able to hold on to it as they ultimately lost, 102-95. C.J. McCollum led the way for the visiting team and finished with 28 points, three rebounds, and three assists while Damian Lillard had 18 points, three rebounds and six assists of his own. Ellington was the top scorer for the Heat and had 24 points on the night, including 7-of-10 from beyond the arc.
The result may not have gone their way, but seeing Haslem’s reaction definitely keeps his team’s confidence high, as he never fails to support all of his teammates. It also proves further that he is a consummate professional, and worthy of being the captain of the Heat.
