Joakim Noah and the Bulls were out for revenge after the Denver Nuggets had throttled them 128-96 a month earlier.
While Noah's stat line of 14 points (7-of-10 shooting), 12 rebounds, seven blocks and six assists were impressive, that is not what most fans will remember from this game.
With 1.7 seconds left to play, Noah appeared to tip in a missed shot by Marco Belinelli. Upon further review, the officials overturned the basket. As a result, the Nuggets escaped with a 119-118 win.
Per ESPN, Noah had this to say about the basket that wasn't:
That's what is frustrating. How are you going to review that one, but you can't review the one two plays before it. I just know the refs are doing the best they can in those situations, but it cost us the game today, it's disappointing.
With the loss, the Bulls dropped to 36-30, marking the team's seventh defeat in 11 outings.
