Josh Giddey no call shoved in the back OKC Thunder vs Miami Heat video latest results results steph curry shoulder injury scan results update golden state warriors

The Miami Heat narrowly edged out the OKC Thunder 110-108 after a dubious no-call against Josh Giddey on final possession.

After Tyler Herro hit the huge go-ahead shot with 4.4 seconds left in the previous game, the Thunder had a chance to even the points or win the game with a three.

Shai Gilgous-Alexander missed potential play by firing from the middle but Giddey grabbed the offensive board and appeared to be nudged in the back as he went back up to try to put the ball in.

Time ticked by as both Giddey and Gilgeous-Alexander debated the call with the referee to no avail in a wild ending to the clash at the Paycom Center.

“Giddey was taken out from under the rim … Giddey thought he was fouled in the back,” said Thunder commentator Chris Fisher.

“Just a little nudge from Oladipo on the back. Giddey was being removed from his seat the entire time.”

Giddey finished the tournament with a double-double with 19 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists in 36 minutes in a strong showing from the Aussie.

But it was Herro, who had a game-high 35 points with nine three-pointers, and the Heat who had the last laugh to improve to 14-15 – that marked their third win from their last four games to face the return to approach 0.500.

Gilgeous-Alexander led all Thunder starters by double digits with 27 and added eight rebounds and seven assists, but it wasn’t enough as Mark Daigneault’s team lost their fourth straight, falling to 11-17.

Curry suffers a shoulder injury

The Golden State Warriors lost a second straight game in a 119-125 away loss to the Indiana Pacers.

But Steve Kerr’s team has bigger problems.

Steph Curry left the game early in the third quarter with a shoulder injury and didn’t return after a great performance from the superstar – ending with 38 points, five triples, rebounds seen, seven assists, two steals and a block in 29 minutes.

As if losing Curry wasn’t enough, Draymond Green was knocked out of contention early in the fourth tournament after receiving a second technical foul for arguing with an umpire as the Warriors, already without Klay Thompson ( rest) played, couldn’t finish a complete .

With that, Golden State fell to 14-15 in the season and 2-12 on the road to fill the West’s 10th seed while Indiana was on a two-game losing streak.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Curry would get an MRI on his left shoulder after the game as the reigning champions eagerly await the results in an already shaky season.

“We’ll see how he’s doing tomorrow,” Kerr told reporters.

“I checked with him briefly, but I haven’t had a chance to go into detail with him yet.

“Steph is always a guy with a great attitude so he was in good spirits. We hope the best.”

Losing Curry for an extended period would be a major setback for the Warriors.

Curry has averaged 30 points per game this season and hit 50% from the ground. He averaged 6.7 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 1.7 blocks per game.

“My message to the group was this is about competing, it’s about weathering the storm,” Kerr said. “It was a tough start to the season. We are in a difficult phase.

“Maybe it will be more difficult if Steph is out for a while. If he fails, it will certainly be more difficult.

“But you just have to persevere, keep playing and keep fighting. When we’re healthy, we feel like we can beat anyone.”

Tyrese Haliburton had a team-high 29 points with six assists and led the Pacers while Bennedict Mathurin had 24 points off the bench.
