Honestly, it feels like Khy Kabellis was robbed here. Obviously it was an accidental, desperation, no-look toss that somehow made it's way into his own hoop so he wouldn't get credit for scoring them anyway, but something that impressive should count for more points than a layup - regardless of who they get awarded to. That once-in-a-lifetime misfortune needed to have a bigger impact on the scoreboard, and I'm not even sure which side of it. We see own baskets all the time, but I feel like a difference in numerical worth would help distinguish how much more outlandish this was than any tipped rebound gone awry.
There might not be a more unforgiving play in sports than the attempted save. Not only is basketball thee sport in which success is most measured by offensive statistics, but - more often than not -diving into a row of chairs while blindly throwing the ball behind you results in an easy basket for your opposition or a continuation of their possession when you step out of bounds. The risk greatly exceeds the reward, and the people taking that risk so rarely get their due outside of a 5 second shoutout on the broadcast. Hustle plays like the one Khy Kabbellis just historically botched are often thankless, and that's why this should have counted as a three...so Denver would have felt obligated to give him the proper thanks for his efforts.
I don't know if a pat on the ass from the other team would have made him feel better about himself, but it would have been worth a shot as unlikely as the one he just made...
