Thomas Bryant’s Own Goal

In a unique circumstance yesterday, Washington Wizard Thomas Bryant was battling for a defensive rebound and accidentally scored on his own basket in the process (https://twitter.com/shaqtin/status/1343015052639694850) . Statistically speaking, because Portland’s Evan Fournier was the closest Trail Blazer to this play, if you scroll to 9:46 in the 3rd quarter of that game’s play-by-play (https://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/pbp/202012260WAS.html) , Fournier is credited with both an offensive rebound and the 2 points in that sequence.
