The New York Knicks win Game 2 against the Jimmy Butler-less Miami Heat on Tuesday night.
With about 3:06 to go in the game and the Knicks up three points, the Heat were scrambling to get a shot off as the shot clock winded down. Caleb Martin put up a last-second heave and after the miss, officials stopped the ball and called a shot clock violation.
Gabe Vincent argued the ball had hit the rim, and he cleaned up the missed shot and scored an easy layup. Still, the officials considered it a turnover and gave the ball to the Knicks. A replay on the broadcast showed that the ball did, indeed, hit the rim and the referees missed the call.
Basketball fans were far from happy
Martin led the Heat with 22 points and eight rebounds. Vincent added 21 points and five assists. Max Strus had 17 points and Bam Adebayo had 15 points.
New York won the game 111-105 to even the series at one game apiece.
Game 3 is set for Saturday back in Miami.
