Nuggets had the game wrapped with 20 seconds to go. Melo had the rebound after a shot by Denver had obviously hit the rim. Nuggets were up by two at the time. The refs rule that it did not hit the rim and therefore was a 24 second violation. Worst call I have ever seen to give the Lakers the game. Lakers then hit a three with a couple seconds left to win by one.
