Spurs Win After DeAndre Jordan is Called For Basket Interference on Blake Griffin’s Shot

“I hope to God it was the right call” – Doc Rivers

For about 2 seconds, the TNT score at the bottom right said the Clippers were up by 1 with 4.3 seconds left in the game after DeAndre Jordan tipped in a missed shot by Blake Griffin.  But then the points were replaced once it was confirmed a basket interference call was made on Jordan.

“It was a dumb play,” said Jordan who finished with 21 & 14 but also missed 9 of 16 free throws in GM5. “I hit the ball. We did a good job fighting to put us in a situation to go up one. You can’t blame anybody on that but me. I tipped the ball.”

“That was the play of the game,” said Manu Ginobili. “That’s why I say we got lucky. The ball was going in, and he happened to touch it. That would have put us down one. Instead, it was a completely different ballgame. We got a little lucky on the play.”

After the play Danny Green made a free throw, missed the 2nd but Kawhi Leonard was able to get the offensive board and hit on his two free throws to give the Spurs a 111-107 win.

The Spurs now lead the series 3-2 and game 6 will be played in San Antonio.
