NBA commentator Derek Harper’s awkward on-air moment

DALLAS Mavericks broadcaster Derek Harper was just trying to get on with the job of presenting the post-game report between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Dallas Mavericks, but something caught his eye.

Two fans came into view behind the shot and embraced, with one grabbing her friends backside and jiggling it in full view of the world.

Harper was briefly distracted by the cheeky display but quickly snapped back to reality and continued the broadcast as if nothing happened.

Cleveland and Kevin Love remained hot from the three-point line as the Cavaliers routed the Dallas Mavericks 128-90 in record fashion.

Love finished with 27 points and 10 rebounds, Kyrie Irving scored 25 points and LeBron James had 19 points and 11 assists. None of them played the fourth quarter in a one-sided contest that was decided by halftime.

The Cavaliers also set an NBA record by becoming the first team to have consecutive games with 20 or more three pointers. Cleveland made 21 three pointers on Wednesday in a lopsided win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Love drained seven three pointers, including one that gave Cleveland a whopping 68-28 lead in the second quarter.

One game after he scored 34 points in the first quarter against Portland, Love added to his three-point total Friday, giving him 15 in the last two games. He made 18 through the first 12 games of the season.

In New York, Carmelo Anthony’s jumper with three seconds left in overtime gave the New York Knicks a 113-111 win over the Charlotte Hornets at Madison Square Garden.

Anthony poured in a season-high 35 points and grabbed 12 rebounds and Kristaps Porzingis and Derrick Rose scored 16 points each for the Knicks.
