Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace kissed the hand of a female fan after getting a lucky bounce that allowed him to score the basket despite a missed slam dunk during Sunday night's game at the Staples Center against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
It happened in the third quarter as World Peace stole a pass and appeared to have an easy breakaway basket. World Peace's dunk attempt hit the back of the rim, but the ball bounced straight up in the air and fell through the net, so he got the basket anyway. World Peace was feeling good, so he went to the female fan in the front row and kissed her on the hand.
The Lakers beat the Cavs 113-93 to end a 6-game losing streak.
