VIDEO: Lakers’ Alex Caruso submits Shaqtin’ entry with horrible floater attempt
The Lakers were down by double-digits with six-and-a-half minutes remaining in the second canto when Rajon Rondo set the table up for a cutting Caruso in the baseline. While CaruShow served up plenty of highlights in the first two games of the series, it was not the case on Tuesday.
With the shot-clock winding down, the 26-year-old reserve opted to go with the floater after that beautiful find from Rondo. However, Caruso hilariously flubbed the wide-open look, as his teardrop went over the backboard and missed the rim completely.

In-game commentators Reggie Miller and Chris Webber were quick to mock the Lakers guard by playfully calling it a definite Shaqtin’ A Fool moment.
Alex Caruso better have some thick skin on this one, as Shaq will definitely go to town with his blunder of epic proportions.
