That was one costly spill.
Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd was fined $50,000 by the NBA Thursday night for intentionally spilling a drink on the floor to delay Wednesday's game.
Social media has certainly had a lot of fun with this one. The reality, though, is that the Nets are 4-11 and have lost nine of their past 11 games.
Granted, as we've pointed out, that record leaves them just 2½ games behind the Raptors (6-8) for first place in the Atlantic Division and the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference.
On Friday, the Nets are in Houston to take on the Rockets (11-5), who have won three in a row.
"Cupgate" has been fun and all, but the Nets need to start winning games.

Question: What did you think of Kidd's move? Gamesmanship or cheating?
Stat right? With his $50,000 soda spill fine, Jason Kidd could buy four cans of Coke each day for the next 68 years, according to ESPN.com's Darren Rovell.
What's next: The Nets face the Rockets on Friday night at Toyota Center. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families and friends.
