Doug Christie and Grant Napear were on the edge of their seats. The Boston Globe was ready to press send.
Football is a game of inches, and as the Celtics learned Sunday, basketball is a game of bounces.
Marcus Smart's game-winning floater attempt hit the rim, rolled around and dropped off to give the Kings a wild 100-99 win at Golden 1 Center, snapping Boston's 10-game win streak.
We've all wished Twitter had an edit button, and the Globe certainly could have used one as the ball rattled off the rim. The Kings, of course, took notice.
The Globe quickly corrected themselves, but this is the internet. Once you've pressed send, there's no going back.
Really, though, this ending was pure chaos for a Kings win.
A game of bounces, folks.
