Quality passing big men are hard to find, and so far, the Golden State Warriors' Andrew Bogut isn't submitting his candidacy as one of them.

Spotting an open Stephen Curry cutting under the basket in Wednesday's game, the 7'0" center tried to make a fail-safe play by zipping a pass to the reigning MVP from beyond the arc.

It didn't go as planned—just ask Nikola Jokic.

The Denver Nugget felt the full velocity of the attempted assist as it crashed squarely onto his face. Ouch!

Talk about taking one for the team...
