Never, under any circumstances, turn your back on your opponent in a critical moment of a game or you'll get absolutely embarrassed and go viral for all the wrong reasons.
Yes, we're talking about you Sindarius Thornwell. Tuesday night, the Clippers guard was in for a critical possession late in a game against the 76ers and he turned his back on Ben Simmons on an inbound play. If you can't already tell what's coming next, just watch:
We understand why Thornwell had his back to Simmons in that situation, so you have to give Simmons a ton of credit for making that heads-up play.
Thornwell was just trying to help deny the inbound and having his back turned to Simmons would allow him to help out a teammate in that situation if someone comes open. Unfortunately for him, Simmons is incredibly crafty and he made him pay.Simmons also attempted a jumper in the win against the Clippers and it didn't go as well as the off-the-back inbound, but it was still a noteworthy play from the game according to the internet.
