Orlando's rout of the Hawks summed up in 14 seconds

May 5, 2010, 9:16 AM EDT

This little video pretty well says it all.

Josh Smith starts driving the lane for what is normally a monster dunk, but Dwight Howard is there so he goes with the floater. Howard skies and gets away with goaltending (that ball was on its way down). While Josh Smith is flapping his arms and moaning about the call, the Magic are on a break that results in a dunk and an easy transition bucket.

Magic defense, Dwight Howard, easy bucket for Orlando. Pretty much the entire game right there.

    From the NBA rulebook: “For goaltending to occur, the ball, in the judgment of the official, must have a chance to score.” Given that this shot looked like it would’ve been a woefully off-target airball, the ref made the right call.
