Oklahoma City Thunder center Kendrick Perkins thought he could pull off a "Eurostep," that infamous extra step so many get away with, against the Golden State Warriors, but it didn't exactly work out.

Watch the Vine above as Perkins takes the ball and attempts to Eurostep, but instead gets called for a charge as he falls over. The play didn't matter too much, as the Thunder went on to win 127-121 thanks to a 54-point performance from Kevin Durant.

Thanks to Nari (@PacMan_103) for the find on Twitter.
