WASHINGTON — Jason Smith was trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons during the Wizards’ narrow victory over the Bulls Tuesday night.
The Wizards’ big man lost his legs defending a swing pass to Bobby Portis, which garnered Smith the attention of Shaqtin’ a Fool.
“So I might have been a little gassed,” Smith explained to CSN Mid-Atlantic after the game. “And I was like, ‘You know what? I’ve got to get out there.’
“But I was gonna contest high and my legs said ‘no’ and I just gave him like, you know, the field goal kick where you kind of dive past him to get a little… you know, something to that effect. It worked!”
