76ers guard Marco Belinelli made a game-tying jumper at the end of the fourth quarter against the Celtics on Saturday – not the game-winning 3-pointer some thought it to be.
Unfortunately, among those who misjudged Belinelli’s distance from the basket was the man in charge of the confetti in Philadelphia.
Even more unfortunately for the 76ers, after a delay to clean up the mess, the Celtics won in overtime to take a 3-0 series lead.
Apparently, the man responsible wore a very fitting shirt.
