Rapper Travis Scott may find himself on a basketball highlight reel this season after his drink spilled on the court during the New York Knicks’ 121-102 win over the Brooklyn Nets.

With 9:40 left in the fourth quarter, Knicks guard Immanuel Quickley lost control of the ball before it flew out of bounds and hit Scott in the hand that was holding his beverage. Quickley contributed 19 points towards the victory.

The drink then spilled all over the arena floor where Scott was sitting courtside, resulting in a slight delay as cleaning staff arrived to mop it up.

‘Oh, wow that’s a Guiser,’ exclaimed Nets commentator Ian Eagle as he watched a replay of the spill. ‘Look at that, I don’t know if I’ve seen celebrity’s spill [a drink] to that effect.’

Scott then proceeded to open up another can of whatever he was drinking before arena staff members were even finished cleaning up the original spill.

It’s been a bad week for Scott in Brooklyn after he was also nearly knocked off the Barclays Center stage by a giant moving prop resembling a pig during his concert on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old auto-tune rapper was already standing at the edge when he felt the statue bump him from behind, and he instinctively took a leap of faith off the elevated part of the stage.

Travis (born Jacques Webster) then safely landed on a lower part of the stage while barely missing a lyric.

A crew member walked over to Scott to check on him, but he brushed them off and continued rapping. 

Scott’s drink wasn’t the only explosion that took place in the Barclays Center on Wednesday night as Knicks power forward Julius Randle erupted to score 19 of his 26 points in the first half of the win.

At 16-11, the Knicks matched a season high by going five games over .500. New York won for the fourth time in six games and also broke a six-game losing streak in Brooklyn with its first road win against the Nets since December 26, 2019.

Randle made nine of 20 shots and also grabbed seven rebounds.

Donte DiVincenzo added 23 points and hit five of New York’s 13 three-pointers as the Knicks led for the final 46-plus minutes.

Jalen Brunson shook off a 6-of-15 showing to contribute 16 points, eight assists and seven rebounds as the Knicks shot 46.3 percent from the field.

Josh Hart helped out by getting a double-double of 10 points and 13 rebounds.
