The nice spin and dish from Dwight Howard falls into the hands of Omer Asik, unfortunately for Howard and the Rockets he is not yet in the game.
This is the explanation of the evens leading up to the turnover from Howard:
Asik wanders over to the announcement table ready to check into the ball game for the Houston Rockets.
After a possession or two, he is yet to enter the game presumably to replace center Dwight Howard, so he decides during a play that he would amble back to his seat on the bench.
As he does so, the ball is fed to the Rockets Howard in the paint, Dwight takes one hard dribble after a jab step before getting underneath the basket. Met by two Thunder defenders, he spins and dishes the ball out to the wing were he see's a Rockets jersey.
To the embarrassment of Howard and his teammates, that red jersey he spotted was the trudging figure of Asik making his way to the bench as the referee signals the turnover in possession.
It has been noted that Howard struggles when matching up against the Western-leading Oklahoma City Thunder but can hardly be blamed for this particular turnover.
Asik should've still shot the three-ball, even if it was only for the amusement of the travelling Houston fans.
