DJ Khaled may have had the highlight of the night in the Miami Heat’s blowout 120-85 victory in Game 5 of their series against the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday.

At one point during the game, Khaled tossed the basketball back to the Heat as it went out of bounds. Khaled then paced the sideline behind coach Erik Spoelstra and clapped a few times trying to liven up the docile crowd at the FTX Arena in Miami.

Khaled walked back to his seat and on the way there he was seen massaging Spoelstra’s shoulders. The moment went viral on social media and Spoelstra was asked about it after the game.

“That was funny. I didn’t even notice him until the end, what he was doing to get the crowd fired up,” Spoelstra said, via TMZ Sports. “But, I loved it. That’s awesome. I was humbled to be part of that moment. He’s such a great fan there. Over the years, I’ve said hello a few times. But, that was the best interaction and that was genuine.”
