At the end of last night’s Spurs-Lakers, the game was basically in hand, with the Lakers leading 97-92 with mere seconds on the clock. The Lakers brought the ball across half-court, got the ball away from the defenders with time expiring, and weren’t even being defended. The game was over. Even Marv Albert said “and that’s it” on the telecast.
Except Sasha Vujajic decided to pop a three at the buzzer. It’s the kind of thing that should have gotten him punched in the face. Watch:
What makes it really bad, imho, is this: the line on the game was Lakers by 7.5. That means by virtue of that stupid shot, the Lakers covered the spread.
Is anyone at the NBA going to look into why Sasha Vujajic so casually decided to make sure the Lakers covered last night? Just wondering.
