In NBA playoffs, buzzer-beating shot are revered in social media but ridiculed if it doesn’t go in. This was Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan’s predicament in the dying seconds of winnable Game 4 against San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night. Isntead, Spurs won 111-107 leads 3-2 in the series.
DeAndre Jordan was called for offensive interference on Blake Griffin shot that looks like to go in even if DeAndre doesn’t touch ball. The supposed Griffin shot could win the game in taking the lead by a point with 4 seconds left in the game. But that all erased on DeAndre’s violation call which give the ball position back to the Spurs.
DeAndre’s action spurred trending comments from the fans on social media.
My cable jus went out Deandre Jordan took that away too with the interference call

DeAndre Jordan just cost the Clippers the game and most likely the series. That ball was going in. You gotta be smarter than that.
