Steven Adams basket waved off as Thunder lose (Video)
The Oklahoma City Thunder lost Game 2 of their playoff series with the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night 85-84 after a Steven Adams basket was waved off because it came just after time expired.
The Thunder had the ball with 7.1 seconds left down by one after a Raymond Felton missed free throw, and they pushed the ball ahead. OKC missed a layup and a putback, but Adams attempted a second putback that went in:

Unfortunately for OKC, the buzzer had already gone off and time expired. He missed by less than half a second.
So after an embarrassing performance in Game 1, the Mavericks made up for it by stealing Game 2 in OKC thanks to a few tenths of a second.
