Ghost Violation

3 Aug 2020

The Portland Trailblazers (+5) came all the way back from 24 points down to take a fourth quarter lead against the Bostons Celtics before losing 128-124--but covering--aided by a phantom backcourt violation and a missed free throw by Jayson Tatum who, ironically enough, led all scores with 34. Without actually going over, Tatum was called for over-and-back with 20 seconds left, but the play was not reviewable.

The crazy ending vaulted KDet047 (35) past jocko (32) for the GridCard win, KDet047's first Hamlin-Hopper of the year to go with a pair of the second and third place finishes. An additional three players--EricCinTX (31), Jeep Lover 2 (31), and Winky (31) defeated the ProGrid Tour--which was won by MMc (29).  KMac (29) and Ricco1947 posted the only other Qualifying Scores.
