The Miami Heat beat the Toronto Raptors by 12 points in on Friday to force a Game 7 on Sunday. That margin was big enough for one bad call not to matter too much, but regardless of its importance, the referees made one of the worst incorrect goaltending calls ever against the Raptors in the game.
When Bismack Biyombo went up for the putback dunk, he very clearly grabbed the ball once it was no longer above the cylinder of the rim before putting it through the hoop. The refs didn’t see it that way, however.

Twitter was pretty outraged at the call.
