It was just a matter of time. After an impressive debut (15 & 13) followed by a 17 & 17 performance, mystery Buck Thon Maker finally had a bad game: 10 points and 10 fouls?!

In the NBA summer league, you are allowed to get foul happy with 10 before fouling out and in a loss to Grizzlies on Monday, Maker missed 3 of his 5 field goals, turned the ball over 4 times and racked up 10 fouls in just 31 minutes. If committing a foul every 3 minutes for 30 minutes sounds awful, the Clippers’ Diamond Stone racked up 10 fouls in just 17 minutes a few days ago.

Other NBA players with this summer league honor include Andrew Bogut, Boogie Cousins and NBA bust Greg Oden, who fouled out in just 20 minutes during his NBA summer league debut.

At least Maker was smart enough not to pick up his 8th foul on this nasty dunk by Wade Baldwin (not Badlwin).
