Jermaine O’Neal, come on down, you’re the winner for most boneheaded game-ending play in the NBA this season! With the game tied at 98 in the closing seconds of regulation, James Harden of the Rockets flung up a 3-pointer that hit the rim and was all set to bounce away harmlessly … when O’Neal swatted the ball off the rim moments after the buzzer sounded and the clock his zero. Referees reviewed the play and determined even though time had expired, O’Neal did indeed touch the ball while it was on the rim and he was called for goal tending. Game over. Rockets 101, Suns 98.
