NBA rules officials missed key foul during final seconds in Bobcats-Raptors game

"Guys, aren't we supposed to be looking at the final play?" "But we haven't finished watching this episode of Coach!" - Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

The Bobcats moved to 6-4 on the season following last night's thrilling nailbiter of a game with the Raptors faltering late and the Bobcats pulling ahead.

As time wound down, Toronto had one last shot. DeMar DeRozan ran from the top of the key around a pick from Bargnani on the right block. Bargnani then slipped from the screen he was setting, popped out on the baseline, caught the inbounds pass and rose for an open shot.

But Michael Kidd-Gilchrist closed fast. Bargnani's shot was clearly altered as it fell well short of the hoop. The officials swallowed their whistles and ruled it a missed shot. Upon closer inspection, it looks more like a foul.

The NBA agreed and tonight released a statement saying the officials missed the foul.

As a fan of basketball and fair games, this is disappointing.

But as a fan of the Bobcats, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
