Blake Griffin's near game winner and Matt Barnes's airball.

The end of the Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks game was controversial to say the least. With only sixth of a second left in the game, Matt Barnes threw an inbounds pass across the entire length of the court to Blake Griffin for a last shot to win the game. And to everyone's surprise, it somehow went in, but was instantly called off by the referee, who tagged Griffin with an offensive foul for pushing of Dirk to make the catch. The angle they provided was not very clear, I don't think Dirk actually pulled a full body flop, but there was contact, just not sure if it was enough to get a call, in a late game situation like this. Anyways, the game headed into overtime and the Clippers were still very much in it, that was until this happened.

Matt Barnes, ladies and gentlemen.
