Can I change controls.target (it's look like camera rotation) in the specific direction

Hi! I need change controls.target in a specific direction.
I use OrbitControls.

Now I change control.target like this:

gsap.to(controls.target, { 
            x: lookAt.x, 
            y: lookAt.y, 
            z: lookAt.z, 
            duration,
            overwrite: true, 
            ease: 'none',
            onComplete: () => {
                this.controls.target.copy(lookAt);
            }
        })

I can see a sharp turn or a smooth turn depending of position new target point.
The duration of the animation does not affect this

Can I controlling rotation direction?
