DeMarcus Cousins plays for the New Orleans Pelicans, but an apparent brain fart on Sunday made it seem like he tried to pass the ball directly to New York Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis.

The play came early in the first quarter with just a couple points on the board for each team.

With Cousins walking the ball up the floor, an apparent miscommunication with Anthony Davis led to a turnover for Cousins that looked pretty hilarious.

That is, until the Knicks took it the other direction.

Via Twitter:

Porzingis of course wound up doing a little dribbling of his own before eventually dumping the ball off to Enes Kanter, who slammed it home for the score.

New Orleans wound up beating the Knicks in overtime, 123-118.
