Steve Buckhantz Thought The Wizards Won, Screamed Dagger, But It Was Only an Airball

Steve Buckhantz, the Washington Wizards play-by-play announcer, thought Trevor Ariza hit this game-winner from the corner, so he went with his signature, “DAGGER!” call. Buckhantz proceeded to scream about it – “a miraculous comeback in Washington!” – before realizing that no, the shot didn’t go in.

It was an airball.
