Down late at home to the Lakers and out of time outs, Nets coach Jason Kidd improvised a trick straight out of Upright Citizens Brigade and managed to "spill" his soda on the court, leading to a delay that let him write up a possible game-saving play.

Jason Kidd Earned The Nets An Extra Time Out By Dropping His Soda

You can clearly see Kidd mouth "hit me" to Tyshawn Taylor, who dutifully ran into Kidd as the first-year Brooklyn coach lifted up his cup. The ploy nearly worked, as the play Kidd wrote up during the court cleanup left Paul Pierce with a decent attempt at a three-pointer; alas, in this case, cheaters didn't win. Pierce's shot didn't fall, and the Nets lost 99-94. [NBA TV/YES]
