The Philadelphia 76ers were stunned by the New York Knicks 104-101 on Monday night when New York stormed back from down five to score the final eight points in the span of 28 seconds.

But 76ers fans are pointing out that the most pivotal play of the Knicks' run should never have happened:

Cam – “bro seriously needs to leave the league. this is ridiculous and disgusting at this point.”

Communist Jim Harbaugh pushed back – “Why don’t you screenshot the push off right before that? They let Maxey get away with an obvious foul, they let Brunson get away with one. But of course, you’re a 76ers fan, so why would you want the truth when you could cry and play victim”

Joel Embiid Stan – “I’m actually speechless. How did a foul not get called at all on that final sequence”

mjthegoat – “I’m done last two game we’ve been cheated of and people gonna say Knicks are clutch even though they need 10 shots each possession to score”

DMightyDuck – “I would say if refs gonna call game like that then the 76ers should’ve been more handsy too. But refs didn’t let Lowry or Batum touch Brunson.”

Embiid even shared his thoughts on the officiating at the end:

The Knicks trailed the 76ers by five points within the final 30 seconds, on the verge of losing home-court advantage before a stunning rally, starting when Jalen Brunson finally got a shot to fall during an otherwise miserable night.

Brunson's 3-pointer from the corner bounced on the rim and fell in, cutting it to 101-99 with 27 seconds remaining. Josh Hart stole the ball from Tyrese Maxey on the controversial play to get the ball back for the Knicks, but DiVincenzo missed a 3-pointer. Isaiah Hartenstein grabbed the rebound and passed it to OG Anunoby, who got it back to DiVincenzo, who hit that one to make it 102-101.

Hartenstein then blocked Maxey's drive, Anunoby made two free throws, and the Knicks held on when Joel Embiid missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

The 76ers appeared on the verge of going home with the series split after Maxey had 15 points in the fourth quarter. His 3-pointer with 1:09 to play gave the 76ers a 100-96 lead and when Kyle Lowry made a free throw with 47 seconds to go, the crowd at Madison Square Garden went silent.

Not the 76ers look to recoup and get back in the series against the Knicks back in Philadelphia. Game 3 is Thursday.
