The New York Knicks beat the Toronto Raptors, 111-109, Tuesday night after officials missed a call that could have changed the outcome of the game.
Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, swarmed by Raptors defenders along the sideline, passed to teammate Lance Thomas. Anthony stepped out of bounds, but referees made no call.
Thomas was fouled by guard Kyle Lowry and went on to make two free throws to give New York a 108-105 advantage with 17.2 seconds left in the fourth quarter.
Raptors Coach Dwane Casey emphatically pointed to the spot on the floor where Anthony stepped out of bounds to get the attention of the game officials, but he was ignored.
