This is pretty wild. Just before halftime of Monday's Warriors-Jazz game, a ballsy fan sitting behind Golden State's basket blows a loud whistle right as Mehmet Okur strips the ball from Ronny Turiaf. Thinking a ref has just called a foul, nearly everyone on the court stops playing. Psyche!
The public address announcer warned the crowd against unauthorized whistles but Kyle Korver's uncontested dunk stood.
Can you imagine if this had happened late in the fourth quarter of a close game?
