The NBA’s Last Two Minute Report concluded Sunday that Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield didn’t double-dribble ahead of his game-winning 3-point buzzer-beater against the Detroit Pistons on Saturday.
“Hield fumbles the inbound pass and subsequently bats the ball to the floor as he attempts to gain control,” the report states. “He picks up the ball with both hands thereafter, establishing full control, and legally takes one dribble prior to the start of his upward shooting motion.”
Hield and his teammates charged off the floor at Little Caesars Arena immediately. After a review, officials confirmed that he released his shot before the clock expired.
