The Wizards appear to have benefited from a minor blown call by the referees in their Game 6 win over the Celtics, one that left Boston with less time than they should have had for a final shot attempt.
It was right after John Wall knocked down his epic three to put the Wizards up 92-91. He left 3.5 seconds on the clock. The Celtics then inbounded the ball to Kelly Olynyk, who was fouled by Kelly Oubre, Jr.
The refs blew the whistle with 1.7 seconds remaining, but the video suggests there should have been at least another second on the clock. That left the Celtics with little time to get off a final shot and Isaiah Thomas had to chuck up a deep three that banged off the rim.
Here is video of Oubre's foul on Olynyk. It's interesting that the refs didn't even review the play:
Celtics fans aren't happy about it, but surely the Wizards won't complain. And Thomas did get a shot off, it just wasn't a good one.
