Nets coach David Vanterpool got away with illegal move during game

David Vanterpool reaches in

One Brooklyn Nets coach got away with an illegal move during Wednesday’s 1-point win over the Washington Wizards.

During the fourth quarter of the Nets-Wizards game, Nets assistant David Vanterpool caused a turnover by reaching towards the court and deflecting a pass.

Spencer Dinwiddie was passing the ball to Kyle Kuzma in the corner when Vanterpool reached out his arm to deflect the pass.

Yes, that is a coach from the sidelines who interfered with the play and got away with it. The refs completely missed it.

The Nets got a turnover on the play and won the game 119-118.

Kuzma was understandably ticked off after the game and called it “horses—” (profanity edited by LBS).

Maybe this is what Damian Lillard loved about Vanterpool: his desire to do anything to win.
