    I thought the idea was to cut down on fan riots?

    This sucks. How can you move the scorekeepers to spots where they can't see? is the extra few hundred dollars a night really that important?

    This is crazy. Why aren't the official scorers sitting at the official scorer's table? :confused:

    That's like the NFL sticking the 2 officials that verify a field goal/PAT attempt in the nose bleeds at mid field.:loser:

    amazing that no one in the stands noticed (who were close to the scorers' table) and screamed it out until they were heard

    Good point. I never considered that side of it. I'm too cheap to gamble. :P

    We all have heard of players point shaving but what about a score keeper point shaving? The more I think about this the more it stinks. Something is rotten in Denmark!!!! With all of the stats being tracked online and with all the live scoring how could this mistake not be caught especially when it happen with 4 mins to go in the game and not be corrected? You mean to tell me someone at NBA.com keeping the stats during the live scoring did not notice the error? Please

    Yeah, I find it extremely hard to believe that no one caught this until after the game. Not the fans. Not the players. No one in the coaching staff. No one in the media. Not the officials.

    I was watching the game. It was an intense moment - easy to get caught up in the rush. TJ Ford's too busy going up and down the court, rushing shots so something like that isn't that hard to miss.
