Dont see to many endings like that

This may be the most ridiculous ending to a game this season.

Not what the Rockets did — with seven seconds left in a 98-98 game they went to the old “isolate your best player out high” and James Harden dribbled it out then pulled up for a three. Which was short and bounced high. It looked like overtime.

Then Jermaine O’Neal inexplicably knocked the bounce off the rim. It was goaltending, on a shot that very likely bounces out anyway, but the referees review it, make the right call and the Rockets win.

Combine that with the Jazz loss and the Rockets lock up a playoff spot for the first time since 2009. Making the dance for a team that shook things up and got Harden just as the season started is a great first step. Enjoy the champagne and celebrate a little, Houston.

Bonehead play because if he was worried about a last second tip in..i'm sure he saw the red around the backboard. Dumb play indeed.

correct call. It would have missed, O'Neal made a stupid play.
