If you were watching (live or on TV) the Hawks insane 20-point comeback aka The Tim Hardaway Jr Show vs the Rockets on Thursday night, you probably thought Trevor Ariza’s three with 12 seconds left in regulation was nothing but net. Then you were confused when the scoreboard didn’t change and the Hawks didn’t take the ball out of bounds. Then you were just shocked when some guy named Bembry dunked on the other end and the Hawks were celebrating a five-point victory.
It turns out that three by Ariza was so off, it was airball that hit the side of the net giving the illusion it swished through the net. Ariza didn’t have much luck on his other 3-point attempts either. He finished the game 1-12 from the field and 1 for 10 from 3!
