Fan Hilariously Falls Victim To 3-Point Shot Prank During Celtics-76ers

As the old saying goes: If it’s too good to be true, it probably is.

During a break in the action of Thursday’s matchup in London between the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers, one fan was brought onto the court and presented with a challenge: Hitting a 3-point shot while blindfolded.

The shot came close but ultimately scraped the bottom of the net. Unfortunately for the fan, the 76ers hype team and The O2 Arena crowd completely fooled him into thinking he nailed it.

Watch the poor fellow go from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows in the clip below:

Ouch.

The 76ers probably can relate to this fan, as their mood changed from happy to sad after squandering a 22-point lead in the Celtics’ 114-103 victory.
