Houston Rockets wing Trevor Ariza definitely hit this shot. And it was a big one! It forced OT, tying the game up after the Rockets trailed the Atlanta Hawks, 111-108.
See for yourself:
Ah, why didn’t they score it?
My eyes are telling me that he perfectly zeroed in the game-tying 3-pointer. Somehow the officials said that it was actually an airball that hit the near side of the backboard and then gently kissed the net, allowing the Hawks to rebound and wait out the clock.
That … can’t be right. Can it?
Atlanta beat the Rockets, 111-108.
