Heat fans incensed over ref blunder that burned Miami vs. Knicks: ‘Brutal mistake’: – Fitnessnacks & Sports

An NBA Playoffs series isn’t going to be complete without fans getting all riled up over a perceived blunder by the game officials. Such was the case in Game 2 of the Miami Heat vs. New York Knicks second-round series Tuesday night when the refs seemed to have blown a call in a particularly crucial moment in the fourth quarter.

With the Knicks up by three points, Heat guard Gabe Vincent launched a long two-point attempt that grazed the front of the rim just before the shot-clock expired on Miami. However, the Heat were instead called for a shot-clock violation.

“Yo that’s crazy Heat got hoe’d, that ball hit the rim that’s 2 points missed,” tweeted @big_business_. The Heat could have easily scored two points off what would have been an easy follow-up by a Miami player who was wide open under the basket.

“The no call on the missed shot that hit the rim really killed the Heat’s chances,” said @WillManso. “Sucks. Just a brutal mistake by officials. But you take the split and go home. Hope for a healthy Jimmy. Took every ounce of energy from Knicks to beat a Butler-less Heat.”

@ATS22190 had a fiery NSFW reaction: “that’s so fucked up!!!! @NBAOfficial get your stuff together! It hit the rim and Heat got robbed of a layup. #NBA.”

There’s no way in hell the refs didn’t see that ball touch the rim.

Strus “out of bounds”

Next year they are going to just take away made baskets from the Heat

The Knicks would eventually come up with a 111-105 win to tie the series up at 1-1.

Miami will look to get the series lead back on Saturday when it takes its turn to host the Knicks.
