During the first quarter of the Golden State Warriors’ 119-113 win over the Orlando Magic on Monday, Warriors’ center Andrew Bogut was able to tip a loose ball to point guard Steph Curry, who as you may have heard, has a pretty decent shot from three.

Bogut Celebrates Curry’s Shot Before Its Attempted

Before the shot was even attempted, the Australian big man decided to celebrate a full two seconds before Curry took his time and gathered himself before swishing home the triple.  By the time the shot went in Bogut, the team’s second leading rebounder with 7.3 boards per game was already at half court.

This isn’t the first time the Warriors have celebrated shots early, Curry went to high five Andre Iguodala while his shot was still in the air during the preseason and Iguodala was seen celebrating a Klay Thompson three pointer in December instead of going for the rebound.
