On Tuesday night, as the Western Conference Nos. 7 and 8 Minnesota Timberwolves and the Los Angeles Clippers, the visiting Clippers went about their business shooting free throws.

As it turned out and explained on the show, the woman on the floor had taped her wrists to the floor in protest. She then resisted as security forces attempted to remove them before eventually lifting them off the ground.

There’s no word on what she was protesting by gluing her hands/wrists to the hardwood, but she was clearly passionate about taking such drastic action.

As for the actual basketball game, which resumed after arena staff cleaned up the floor, Minnesota withstood a run from LA in the first quarter to roll back and lead into halftime.
