Paul George scored 20 points on 6-of-7 shooting off the bench and led Team USA to a 113-69 victory over Venezuela in Game 2 of pool play at the Rio Olympics.

In the final minutes of their game on Monday, George was seen holding his cup over her shoulder to be taken and thrown away.

That’s because NBA players are used to having several ball boys behind the bench of every single game handing them water, Gatorade, a towel, a tissue, or anything else they request. Most players will then hand the cups back once consumed (if they don’t throw them under the bench instead).

Of course at the Olympics, there are not ball boys at the benches to help, only a minimal number of team staffers. As a result, a funny moment was captured by the broadcast on NBC Sports Network.
