Timberwolves’ Gorgui Dieng Scores at the Buzzer on Wrong Basket (VIDEO)

Minnesota rookie big man Gorgui Dieng inexplicably tipped in Derek Fisher’s airball at the end of the third quarter Wednesday night in OKC. The Timberwolves went down 106-97 to the Thunder. Per the Oklahoman:

“I’ve never seen that before,” seven-year pro Kevin Durant said after the Thunder’s 106-97 victory at Chesapeake Energy Arena. “He’s a rookie, so I’m sure he’s going to learn from that one.”

But on this night, the blunder appeared to act as a fire starter for OKC.

To start the fourth quarter, with the crowd back into the game, Jeremy Lamb drilled a three on the opening possession.

It was the back end of a 6-0 run in 12 seconds of game time, basically a six-point possession with the quarter change acting as a turnover.

“That was a big momentum shifter,” Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks said.
