Houston Rockets win on buzzer-beater goaltending call

Wednesday April 10th, 2013

The Phoenix Suns are losing games in every way imaginable and on Tuesday night, their game against the Houston Rockets ended on a goaltending call.

The Suns lost their 10th straight game when center Jermaine O'Neal swiped a potential game-winning shot by Rockets guard James Harden right off the rim handing the Rockets a 101-98 victory.

Harden dribbled down the clock and shot his 3 from the wing and it proceeded to bounce high off the rim and O'Neal tipped it as it came down, just after the buzzer sounded.

Harden finished with 33 points, six rebounds and six assists and Phoenix was paced by Luis Scola's 28 points and eight boards.
