The Oklahoma City Thunder grabbed two technical foul free throws with 1.2 seconds left in the half at Sacramento tonight when Rajon Rondo found himself incapable of handling the ball for an inbounds play—twice.

Rondo refused to take the basketball from an official, and then again refused after Kevin Durant’s made free throw—which earned Durant another shot at the line to turn what would have been a 59-53 halftime score to a 61-53 eventual tally at the intermission.

Rondo then rebooted, went after an official, and had to be pulled away by DeMarcus Cousins. Weird stuff.
