Raptors at Hornets.  Scores tied at 90.  Charlotte’s Kemba Walker loses control of the ball, it’s picked up by Toronto, and DeMar DeRozan hits an EPIC game-winner from just inside half court.  One of the great baskets and great endings of the NBA season…

Except for just one small problem.  Toronto called a timeout, thus nullifying their own epic game-winner from just inside half court.  You can see Kyle Lowry going crazy in the backcourt behind DeRozan trying to get time called.  Mission accomplished, I guess.

Even SportsCenter was flummoxed by the series of events…

And just to rub salt in the wound, the Hornets went on to emerge victorious in overtime 109-99.
