You know when a football match becomes end-to-end, and a commentator likens it to a basketball game? Well sometimes even basketball exceeds its own reputation.

That was the case when the Philadelphia 76ers and the Charlotte Hornets went up against one another, and for a few brief moments, peak basketball was in session.

We got a bit tired just watching.

NBA basketball—not *always* so smooth 😂😂😂

It seems nobody wanted to score any points in that particular passage of play, and somewhat fittingly, the quarter ended 26-26.

In the end, however, the match went the way of the Charlotte Hornets, who managed to finally get the ball through the hoop enough times after this debacle to win 109-93.
