VIDEO: Sixers score bucket with 6 players on the court
Nobody tell the refs. The Philadelphia 76ers benefited from seemingly asleep NBA officials on Friday night in their home matchup with the Chicago Bulls, scoring on a corner 3-pointer from Furkan Korkmaz as Sixers backup center Kyle O’Quinn came over on the baseline from the bench (via Dime).
6-on-5, huh? 🤔😂 pic.twitter.com/FI8JYmHc3T

O’Quinn, who signed with the Sixers in the offseason not as their power play specialist, came over by the baseline, which alerted the Bulls’ players following the made triple, and Chicago head coach Jim Boylen was furious at the officials.
As if the Bulls didn’t have enough to contend with given Philly’s stingy defense led by Ben Simmons, Chicago had to worry about sideline distractions from opposing players themselves. O’Quinn can be seen taking a step on the court, too—something clearly out of bounds by the standards of the NBA to be interfering with play.
