Jordan McRae and Kay Felder produce terrible alley-oop attempt vs Chicago

Published Add your comment

The Cleveland Cavaliers, without a number of their main stars, played out a preseason game with the Chicago Bulls at the United Center last night.

With Kyrie Irving, LeBron James, Tristan Thompson, Kevin Love and Iman Shumpert - among others - sitting out, it was a chance for the youngsters and fringe players to impress.

Cleveland fell to an 118-108 defeat as Rajon Rondo dropped 20 points for the home side, but there were promising signs from the likes of Jordan McRae and Kay Felder.


However, the duo produced a moment they would both like to forget as they completely botched a fast break opportunity. 

With the Cavs up by eight in the second quarter, DeAndre Liggins stripped Rondo - one of his four steals on the night - and quickly released the ball up-court to McRae.

Instead of adding a quick two points to the lead with a layup or slam dunk, the guard tried to assist Felder with an alley-oop pass.

Despite being listed at 5'7, the 21-year-old is no stranger to dunking, however, the pass was wrong, his jump was ill-timed and it ended up in an awful layup attempt that only managed to hit the bottom of the rim. 

There's still some work left to do boys.
