Lakers player hides behind the Heat coach as a defensive strategy and it works

We've heard of the hidden ball trick in baseball, but this is the first time we've seen the hidden player trick in the NBA.

Lakers guard Marcelo Huertas intentionally hid behind Heat coach Erik Spoelstra then raced up behind an unsuspecting Goran Dragic to swipe the ball away. That's right, an NBA player hid behind an opposing coach and it worked.

Here it is from the other angle.

That still seems like a thing that should never ever work in an NBA game, but it did! The old hidden Huertas trick.
