NBA: Anthony fouled on last play of 2-point loss to Kings
NEW YORK (AP) The NBA says Carmelo Anthony was fouled as he took the last shot in the New York Knicks’ two-point loss in Sacramento on Thursday night.
Anthony’s shot from 28 feet that would have won the game bounced off the rim as the Knicks lost 99-97.
In its report detailing the calls in the last 2 minutes of the game, the NBA says Friday that Rajon Rondo grabbed Anthony’s arm prior to his upward shooting motion with 2.9 seconds left, affecting his rhythm, speed, balance and quickness.
The Knicks were in the bonus, so Anthony would have had two free throws had a foul been called.
