In one of the most intriguing stories of the year, did the official scorer at the Hawks-Raptors game on November 24 potentially alter the outcome of the game?

Some Raptors fans on the RealGM Raptors forum are saying yes, and after reviewing the video evidence they may have a point.

It appears that Raptors guard TJ Ford made a layup which was never actually counted, meaning a four point Hawks lead late in the game was actually two points, which could have changed the way the Raptors played out the games' final possessions.

Forum member "webeye" broken down the sequence within the Raptors' game thread.

It was 85-78 Hawks.

Joe Johnson finally hit a free throw, and they gave a point to the Raptors. Scoreboard: 85-79. Should be 86-78.

TJ runs down and hits a circus shot layup with 4:33 remaining in the 4th. But the scorekeepers take a point away from Toronto. Scoreboard: 85-78. Should be 86-80.

The scorekeepers confer, and give Atlanta their missing point for JJ's free throw. Scoreboard: 86-78. Should be 86-80.

Lue hits a shot, and we're back to business as usual. Scoreboard: 88-78. Should be 88-80.

And that's it. The missing 2 points never return.

Let's see...

Mark Cuban points this out- 100K fine.
Let's get the players uniforms, whining, standing up too much in front of their own dang seat...but let's not worry too much about the score.

Hilarious.

Yeah, if Cuban brought this up he would definetly be fined and basically told by everyone that he should just shut up. I really hate this league sometimes....

That's really quite embarassing for a professional sports league.

I'm surprised they didn't employ this tactic in the Finals.

This is quite disturbing.

I didn't think that even in Sterns NBA this could take place. That is pathetic.

This does suck, but just think of how many games are accurately scored and how very few are off. Nobody can be perfect 100% of the time...this is that .0001% of the time when the score keepers are off.
