This actually happens to me all the time. You see a three, the net barely moves, and you think the guy nailed it. Turns out he didn't even get rim because the ball didn't make it there. Short.
Luckily for me, I'm not calling a National Basketball Association broadcast when this happens. The Wizards' announcing crew, who actually are pretty good most times, however...
Pistons 96, Wizards 95, one possession remaining.
Juuuust a bit outside.
Pistons win 96-95, Wizards comeback falls short.
