Caron Butler pulled the ultimate troll move Friday against the Toronto Raptors.

With 15-seconds left in the game and the Clippers down 98-71, Butler went over to Jonas Valanciunas to give him a fake high-five at mid-court. Instead of letting the clock run out and share a brief chat with the rookie, Butler stole the ball from Valanciunas.

Valanciunas was called for a clear path foul and Butler was rewarded with two free throws. Even if it was a somewhat poor sportsmanship play this was a hilarious move by Butler. He finished with 12 points on the night instead of 10.
