Warriors bench loves Kuzma's airball on technical free throw

Kyle Kuzma shooting

Kyle Kuzma is a career 72.8 percent free throw shooter.

But in the second quarter at Chase Center on Monday night, the young Los Angeles Lakers wing looked like he had never taken a shot from the charity stripe before.

After Warriors rookie James Wiseman was given a technical foul for elbowing Lakers forward Montrezel Harrell in the nose, Kuzma stepped to the line for the technical free throw.

Kuzma didn't even come close to making the shot and the Warriors' bench couldn't contain their laughter, Draymond Green included.

Even Harrell had a funny reaction to Kuzma missing the shot wide left.

Injured Warriors center Marquese Chriss joined the NBC Sports Bay Area broadcast and agreed with analyst Kelenna Azubuike that he doesn't think he has ever seen an airballed free throw.

The Warriors got a good chuckle at Kuzma's expense, but the Lakers got the last laugh in the first half, taking a 65-50 lead into halftime.
