Wizards announcer hilariously mistakes airball for game-winner (Video)
The Wizards were down by one and had a last chance to win the game. The ball went into the hands of Trevor Ariza who attempted a corner three for the game. The ball hit the net, so Buckhantz thought it went in for the game-winner and reacted accordingly, screaming out “dagger!” He went on for at least 10 seconds thinking the Wizards had just won it, talking about a “miraculous comeback,” apparently not noticing that the Wizards players were walking off the floor with a sullen mood.
On a delayed reaction, Buckhantz finally said, “They’re saying it did not go.”
Yeah, just a little late to the party there, Buck.
To be fair, from the original angle, it did look like the shot fell.
