The NBA gets its fair share of criticism for often playing fast and loose with rules such as traveling, palming and continuation after fouls. One rule that usually gets called, though, is double-dribbling.
That didn’t stop Raptors forward Amir Johnson from getting away with it on Wednesday night, taking a long pause in between dribbles before scoring a runner against the Trail Blazers. Portland seemed more stunned than anything else afterward, and Johnson looked like someone who knew he had gotten away with something as he ran back down the court.
Check it out for yourself in the video below, and try to figure out how three NBA referees missed the call.
