Reggie Jackson, looking for some dap from Stan Van Gundy.

Reggie Jackson had 30 points and nine assists in the Pistons’ 123-103 win over the Trail Blazers on Sunday night.

You’d think Jackson would have earned at least a high-five from Stan Van Gundy.

Van Gundy appears to give Jackson the cold shoulder, in this Vine posted by Bleacher Report.

But as Van Gundy explained after the game: "I was concentrating on the game, not on that. Reggie's very social and he was trying to give me some dap and I was focused on the play in front of me. I wasn't trying to shun him; it's just that the game was going on."

Said Jackson: "I just wanted a handshake. He was so wound up in the game that I couldn't get my normal dap coming off the court.

"The most animated I was (during the game) was trying to get coach to give me a handshake and it didn't happen," he joked. "He definitely got me (a handshake) at the end, so we made up for it."
