Boston @ Portland, end of the second quarter, 10.1 seconds left on the clock.
With 10 seconds left in the half, Portland took a 20-second timeout. A Blazers substitution brought Jerryd Bayless into the game. Greg Oden was supposed to leave the game, but he didn’t.
So, after the timeout, Bayless inbounded the basketball to Steve Blake. With time ticking down, Blake lobbed it down to Oden outside the left paint near the rim, and Greg quickly flipped it to Travis Outlaw on the right side of the paint, who threw down an open dunk to end the half. The entire Celtics team and staff are going insane.
The referee's say it was their mistake, they allow the basket, and Boston shoots a technical free throw.
Let me say that again, they allowed the basket.
Refs call the league office, their response is that it's a technicality and the bucket is good, and there's nothing they can do about it.
