The Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards game six battle went down to the wire Friday night in Washington D.C after a late John Wall pull-up three. The ‘Wallstar’ did it on his own and left the Celtics with under five seconds remaining in the game to score and pull off the win to potentially end the series. When it was all said and done, the Wiz held on to win and game seven will take place on Monday in Boston.
But a relatively under-reported moment from those final seconds, given the emotional reactions from John Wall and over Wizards, centered around the Celtics final possession of the game. Check out the play below when Kelly Oubre fouled Kelly Olynyk for his sixth foul of the game.
It appears that the clock didn’t stop immediately after the whistle and some noticed the discrepancy in time, including the NBA’s officials.
The NBA released their L2M report on Saturday afternoon. The league found that the Celtics should have actually had 2.7 seconds remaining instead of 1.7. The play that was debated was not reviewable at the time.
