ANIMATED: Hedo Turkoglu Humorously Makes Contact With Official, Immediately T'd Up

Orlando Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu had a momentary lapse in judgment on Thursday night during the Magic's road win over the Chicago Bulls. Turkoglu reacted with surprise and alarm at a call, and immediately went to plead his case to official Karl Lane. Unfortunately, Turkoglu also made contact with Lane - although certainly not in a malicious way. The big Turk put his hands on the shoulders of Lane as he approached him to implore the official to...change his call, perhaps? As soon as he made contact, Lane recoiled and issued a technical foul. The crowd, of course, went nuts in the background leading a pretty hilarious gif.

An animated gif of the sequence after the jump:
