Diana Taurasi and her team, the Phoenix Mercury, was getting beaten by the Minnesota Lynx.
So Taurasi decided to preemptively kiss and make up.
In what may become one of the most famous kisses in basketball -- rivaling Isiah Thomas laying one on Magic Johnson -- Taurasi kissed Seimone Augustus on the cheek.
The pair has played together on the U.S. national team, and both got fouls on the play.
The Lynx won the game 85-62.
