NBA: Griffin’s GW play should not have counted

Blake Griffin had the best game of his career Tuesday night, punctuating his first career 50-point effort with a game-winning three-point play with 1.8 seconds left in overtime to beat the visiting 76ers.However, the deciding play should not have counted, according to the league.According to the NBA’s two-minute officiating report, Griffin’s ball fake on Sixers defenders Amir Johnson and Robert Covington and strong move to the basket both should have been violations.After 76ers shooting guard JJ Redick gave Philadelphia a 132-130 lead on a four-point play with 5.6 seconds left in overtime, Griffin took the inbounds pass, ball-faked the two 76ers defenders, drove the lane and made a layup while getting fouled by Covington. Griffin hit the free throw to give Detroit the one-point win.
