Mistaken Call Ruins the Wizards' Day

Right before the final buzzer the the Washington Wizards and their fans thought that they had pulled off an amazing on-the-edge-of-their-seats-win over the Detroit Pistons Wednesday night, but unfortunately it was not to be.
If you had been sitting next to Steve Buckhantz, the Wizards veteran commentator, you would have been as sure as he was that the last second three pointer had gone in as he let out the trademark "Dagger!" Which he quickly had to retract for the first time in his career. Even the backboard thought that the shot was good.
Buckhantz blamed his mistake on his moving up 20 rows from his usual courtside seats.
