The Atlanta Hawks fell behind the Minnesota Timberwolves by 34 points at one point Monday night, but that didn’t stop them from plugging away and making a game of it.

In fact, they cut the lead all the way down to four with less than two minutes remaining, and came super close to potentially making it a one-possession game… if they had just gotten this eight-second violation call:

If you ever wanted to measure your NBA announce team’s homerism, just use this video of Fox Sports’ Bob Rathbun for reference. He just about lost it here despite the officials making the correct non-call.

One year of good basketball and these guys want the world.
