NBA: Wizards got go-ahead free throws in win over Nets on missed call

0 Comments

After a questionable call late in the Wizards’ win over the Nets on Wednesday, John Wall started to argue. But he then bit his tongue, figuring, “Why just keep giving up money?

Another reason Wall should have turned silent: Washington had just gotten a far more favorable call earlier in overtime.

With the game tied, Otto Porter drew a Bojan Bogdanovic shooting foul with 1:21 left and then sank both free throws. But that whistle shouldn’t have been blown, according to the NBA’s Last Two Minute Report:

Bogdanovic (BKN) makes legal contact with the ball.

The teams exchanged scores, but with the Wizards still up two and the shot clock and game clock nearly synced, Brooklyn had to begin intentionally fouling. Washington then pulled away for a 114-110 win.
