Biebs appeared confident as he jumped high to make the scoring shot however, all the tall reality star had to do was raise his long arms up to stop the ball from going in the basket.
As soon as the basketball left Justin’s hands, it immediately hit the wall of Matt’s palms – keeping the Canadian from scoring.
The ABC star appeared proud, doing various hand gestures and getting hyped from the crowd to celebrate the play.
Matt didn’t hesitate to brag on the baller move – as he posted the clip across all over his social media platforms.
“No easy buckets,” he said alongside a laughing and block emoji.

Meanwhile, Justin shared some snaps from the game – including one with the TV newbie.
In one picture, he stood next to Matt as he dribbled the ball but kept him at arm’s length.
“Right before I did a reverse dunk, unfortunately it wasn’t caught on camera but it was crazy,” he joked in the caption – a nod to the block earlier.
No one who attended the even appeared to be wearing a mask – though some had worn one but it was dropped around their neck.

She said Matt texted her “out of the blue,” about popping by Miami, but she declined the invitation saying she was tired.
The horse rider went on: “It just didn’t sit right with me. I just felt like Rachael was so in love with him and for him to be trying to contact me and hang out with me.
“Someone he’s had past romantic relationships with – two days prior in Miami… I felt like I had to say something for Rachael’s sake. Rachael is the real victim here.”

Last week, a source told The Sun: “Matt hasn’t reached out to her at all. It’s been crickets between them, they aren’t talking.”
It was added that Rachael realized she “doesn’t even know Matt” as more of the “truth” comes to light, the informant added.
“Rachael’s hurt and she’s done. Seems unlikely she will forgive him after this one,” the informant said.
