Zach LaVine nailed back-to-back 3-pointers and made this Wizards kid very sad

No Zach, think of the children!

Washington desperately needed to win to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. Sitting three games out of the No. 8 seed, it looked like the Wizards would snatch a win against the Timberwolves in overtime. But Zach LaVine had other thoughts.

Those are incredibly difficult shots, especially the second one, both with 6'11 Marcin Gortat in his face. Outshined by Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns, LaVine is having a quiet but fantastic season shooting nearly 39 percent behind the three-point line and scoring 14 points a game. These shots are just proof.

As for the Wizards, they lost in double overtime and this is probably it for their playoff chances. Let this Wizards kid's happy-to-confused-to-sad reaction sum up their season.
