Iman Shumpert called for questionable foul on Paul George (Video)
The New York Knicks looked like they were going to pull off an impressive home win over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday until a questionable foul was called in the final 10 seconds.
The Knicks were up 89-86 with just under 10 seconds left and the Pacers inbounding the ball. Paul George threw in the pass then got the ball back and attempted a tying three. His shot was an airball well off the mark, but the referees called Iman Shumpert for fouling him on the shot. That gave George three free-throw attempts, which he made to tie the game.
On the next possession, Carmelo Anthony went 1-on-1 against George and did not get a foul call as he missed a jumper in the paint, sending the game to OT. The Pacers went on to win the game easily in OT 103-96.
