This must be ESPN's "Boom Goes The Dynamite" moment.
After the San Antonio Spurs' win over the Indiana Pacers earlier this month, ESPN broke down the game but apparently failed miserably.
From the get go of the highlight segment, ESPN anchor calls a play between Manu Ginobili and DeJuan Blair as Tim Duncan to Danny Green. Clearly it was wrong and that was just the beginning of this botched highlight package.
The ESPN talking head announces the wrong quarter, refers to Duncan as Pacers' Gerald Green, credits Tony Parker for a shot when it's Gary Neal, and gets nothing right during this segment. Check it out.

With 19.9 seconds remaining and the San Antonio Spurs trailing the Los Angeles Lakers 82-81 in the fourth quarter on Tuesday, the Spurs didn’t draw up a play for Tony Parker or Tim Duncan.

Danny Green hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 9.3 seconds left, Tony Parker scored 19 points and the San Antonio Spurs beat Los Angeles 84-82 Tuesday night in the Lakers' first loss since firing coach Mike Brown.
After Pau Gasol missed a 3-pointer, Tiago Splitter's hustle prevented the Lakers from controlling the rebound before the buzzer sounded on Los Angeles' first...
