Thunder Beat Spurs Thanks to Crucial Non-Call By Refs (Videos)

Dion Waiters elbow

Allow me to set the scene: Game 2 between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs.  OKC’s Dion Waiters is set to inbound the ball with 13.5 seconds remaining, no timeouts, and his team leading 98-97.

From there, madness ensued:

After all of that mayhem, the Thunder were able to emerge with a 98-97 victory.  But they probably shouldn’t have.

While inbounding the ball, Waiters gave Manu Ginobili a blatant elbow, right in front of the official.

The refs should have at least called a personal foul on Dion Waiters, if not a technical.  But they kept their whistles in their pockets, the Spurs weren’t awarded any free-throws, and they failed to connect on a game-winning bucket after stealing the inbound pass.

Thunder win.  Series tied, 1-1.
