Because I bet NO+10.5, and basically NO was winning the whole time, But Indiana eventually came back and the game went into OT.  In OT, The Pacers were winning by 11 with 20 secs in the game, then Marco Bellinelli drove for a layup and made it, enabling to win my bet.  but OMG, I think I just lost 4 years off my life.  Glad, Bellinelli drove for the layup, because alot of NBA teams would've let the clock run out and I would've lost my bet.

buddy, i did. had 2 units on the hornets+10 and thought about betting the pacers 2nd half line for 1 unit for a potential middle but decided not too... i think i lost 3 years of my life in that one...thought they would dribble it out too, thanks to marco b. for the garbage layup  have been lucky tonight on the pistons game too with the ben gordon garbage three and this. can't get any better

I wouldn't have had to lose 4 years of my life if Darren Collison made both of his FT's, what an idiot.  also, Boy George missed that 10 foot game-winner, also an idiot.

That would make you think hard about it too, right? Down by 11, 20 seconds left, what would a meaningless 2 point layup do? Is it something that is going to help you comeback and win the game? No... but it helps to cover the spread. Congrats mate.

Not true, when teams are down (no matter what score) they typically go for a basket and don't run the clock down.
If it was Indiana who had possession however they woulda ran the clock down and NO would not have fouled.

Congrats on ya win

what you guys talking about, the losing team always go for a score ...the winning team is the one try to dribble out.
