In the final seconds of tonight's thriller between the Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Clippers, Chris Paul received an inbound pass with 2.8 seconds left, and 1.8 seconds on the shot clock. He attempted a bank shot to win the game, and it missed. However DeAndre Jordan confused the shot-clock buzzer for the game clock, and forgot to tip the ball into the bucket for the win (see full video here). In a classic NBA moment, Chris Paul immediately informed him of his dissatisfaction.
