The New York Knicks won 113-111 at home against the Detroit Pistons in the NBA on Monday.

However, the Pistons seemed to be on their way to victory in Madison Square Garden. In the closing seconds they led 110-111 when a foul by home player Donte DiVincenzo on Ausar Thompson was not penalized. The ball went to the home team, after which Josh Hart gave the Knicks the lead with a lay-up and then topped it off with a free throw.

“A shame,” Pistons coach Monty Williams summarized afterwards. “This should never happen in an NBA game. This is by far the worst decision made this season.” The match officials looked into their own bosom and admitted: “We established that Thompson was the first to get to the ball and was subsequently unable to take advantage of his possession. The whistle should always have been blown for a foul.”
