Timofey Mozgov forgot what language he was being interviewed in
Russian-born Timofey Mozgov has been playing basketball in the United States for five years now and speaks English very well, but he still thinks in Russian, which explains why he answered sideline reporter Allie Clifton's question in his native tongue without even noticing.
Clifton handles the incident like a pro moving forward to the next question, and when Mozgov begins to answer in English, he realizes his earlier mistake.
The sideline reporter joked about the incident later on Twitter, saying she was just getting some language lessons from the center.
