Harrison Barnes went Christian Laettner to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night, and he topped it off with something disrespectful.
Barnes took a full-court pass from De’Aaron Fox with his team down 98-97 and 1.6 seconds left. He took a step, pivoted and launched a winning three-pointer at the buzzer.

What. A. Shot.
But did you see what he did after he made it? He gave a slap on the rear to Collin Sexton, as if to say “nice try, but not quite good enough.” That’s just rubbing it in.
Barnes had 16 points and 11 rebounds in the Kings’ 100-98 win. At least he gave North Carolina fans a highlight to enjoy this March.
