Jakob Poeltl tried to check into the Clippers game without his jersey

Just a minor piece of required uniform attire was missing.

Someone has likely made Shaqtin’ a Fool this week. Spurs center Jakob Poeltl was sitting on the bench in their game against the Clippers, waiting for Gregg Popovich to sub him in during the first quarter, but he forgot a tiny, minuscule piece if equipment: his jersey.

After running back to the locker room to retrieve it and receiving some sarcastic applause from his teammates upon return, he finally entered the game and continued doing what he’ done lately: putting on a Blockob party with two blocks on the first half on the way to a Spurs 63-54 lead at intermission. Maybe Poeltl will double check when he exits that same locker room again tomorrow for their SEGABABA against the Lakers.
