Watch Jerami Grant hit game-winner to lift Trail Blazers past Suns
Did Jerami Grant travel?
The shot was unquestionably amazing. With the game tied 106-106 and just one second left on the clock, Justise Winslow threw a cross-court inbounds pass that Grant caught and shot, knocking down the game-winner for the Trail Blazers.
The reaction of his teammates was awesome.
But did Grant travel on the play?
It’s close, but based on the way the NBA interprets the rule — one step to gather the ball then two steps — I don’t think so. We’ll see what the NBA says in Saturday’s Last Two Minute Report. Whatever the report says, it doesn’t change the game’s outcome.
This comes days after the NBA admitted the Heat’s Tyler Herro traveled on his game-winner against the Kings.
This is Grant’s second game-winner of the season, he had one early on against the Lakers where he drove past LeBron James and avoided Anthony Davis at the rim to get the bucket.
