NBA Rules Eric Gordon Was Fouled On Inbounds Play With 24 Seconds Left In Game 3

The NBA ruled that Eric Gordon was fouled on an inbounds play with 24 seconds left in the Houston Rockets' overtime loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.


The Rockets, who were up two at the time, should have a free throw and possession of the ball.


PJ Tucker threw the ball away on the original play, with the Thunder taking possession. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander hit a go-ahead three on the ensuing possession.


"I mean, you know I hate to even talk about that because as strong as I am, ain't nobody going to just throw me to the ground. Things happen. We got to move on. We shouldn’t put ourselves in that situation," said Gordon of the correction.
