Robin Lopez trolled on Twitter for bad reaction time during Bulls-Celtics [Tweets]

The Boston Celtics are currently playing against the Chicago Bulls, and arguably one of the funniest moments of the weekend has just happened during the game.

The Celtics currently have a convincing lead over the Bulls so far, and Isaiah Thomas is having a good outing, with ten points, one rebound, and one assist. He has defenders comfortably sitting in his back pocket.

One of those defenders is Robin Lopez, who got absolutely burned by the forward during a three-pointer in the first quarter. 

With just under six and a half minutes left in the quarter and Boston up by 10, Thomas picked up possession on the left-hand side of the court with Lopez defending him. The Celtics star faked a move on the outside, before stepping back to score a three-pointer.

What makes this certain play hilarious though is the speed which Lopez reacts to the fake, and the speed which he attempts to block Thomas' three-pointer shot afterward.

Sure, he may be a big, standing at seven-foot and therefore probably can't move as fast as other players on the court, but this is simply just bad reaction timing, and Twitter trolled him for it.

Unless the Bulls pick themselves up in the second half of the game, it looks like the Celtics could have an easy win on their hands, and move back up to second in the Eastern Conference. Chicago, on the other hand, will drift further away from claiming a playoff spot if they lose.
