As Mario Hezonja hurled the ball in the air, the clock started before someone even touched the ball.
Because there was an error with the clock, the officials decided that both teams must contest a jump-ball at centre court.
NBA Crew Chief Bill Spooner met with The Orange County Register's Bill Oram after the game, and he said the jump ball is the ruling because "the ball is midair when the shot clock malfunctioned, therefore, the ruling is, because there's no possession when the shot clock goes off, the ruling is that there's a jump ball, center circle". "I don't know. It's just common sense would tell me that in that situation, the clock started early, that you do redo the possession".
"They took the ball from us and made it a jump ball with 0.6 seconds, which kills any chance of us tying the game or winning the game", Vogel said. Thomas, in fact, is the Lakers second-leading scorer (18.4 points per game) in that span. Randle is the team's leading scorer (18.9) and rebounder (9.7) during this stretch.
"He's such a humble guy, that sometimes he looks for me to do things", Millsap said of Jokic. "They [the NBA] have gotta change that rule, and I think they will". The Lakers were somewhat lucky to escape with a narrow win over the lowly Magic in their last outing, but they've been a pretty good road team lately as they've covered in each of their last five road games while the Nuggets have failed to cover in each of their last four home games. I missed a lot of free throws. Lakers point guard Isaiah Thomas said, simply, that the official explanation was "weird". "Kind of really saved us". "Nobody touched it. The clock expired before it even got to whoever, and so I think we should've gotten the ball back". That (stinks) for the Magic. "I just go to one spot, I snap out of it and (go to) the new spot". His sore knee would have prevented him from playing out the rest of his second 10-day contract, so the Magic made the move.
