Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd caused a delay in the final minutes of the Nets' 99-94 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers when Tyshawn Taylor ran into him, causing him to spill his drink.
Kidd explained what happened to the New York Post's Tim Bontemps after the game:

Video shows that Kidd may have said, "Hit me," asking Taylor to bump him intentionally, as it was prior to a crucial free throw in a two-point game with the Nets out of timeouts.

According to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, Kidd will be fined $50,000 for his dropped cup.
