Sometimes the shot is there, and you have to take it.

That’s the position Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Taj Gibson found himself in after grabbing a defensive rebound with the clock ticking down to halftime against the L.A. Clippers on Wednesday.

So take it, he did. From about 90 feet. It didn’t get there.

As for teammate Jimmy Butler’s response? Well. We’re not going to spell it out here, but if you’re any good at reading lips, it’s pretty clear. And funny. Just don’t watch if you’re easily offended.
