Dick Stockton completely misses a dunk


During Game 2 of the Clippers-Grizzlies NBA playoff series on Monday night, Memphis was making a comeback late in the fourth quarter. Darrell Arthur broke free of Los Angeles defenders, dunked the ball, and was fouled by Lamar Odom.

Of course, play by play commentator Dick Stockton completely ignored the dunk, saying that in fact, Odom prevented Arthur from making the basket. In such a close playoff game with a minute and a half to play, two points isn't that big of a big deal, right? This seems to be par for the course for Stockton, and you wonder how many more years TNT is going to stick with him calling playoff basketball.
