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…
WHOA is that a record? @awfulannouncing pic.twitter.com/nu9IDC4PKp

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