"That's a double-dribble!"

"Terry Stotts is saying, 'What in the heck.'"

"Yeah, they missed it completely — three refs out there, it's a double-dribble! ... How do you miss that? I mean, he double-dribbled!"

The Toronto commentators, meanwhile, not only waited a few beats before even mentioning the possibility — they had to see it again.

"Amir Johnson with a smile and a new look, by the way."

"I tell you what, Matt — I'd like to see that again. I think Amir got away with a little double-dribble right there!"

"And that's maybe why he was smiling back at the bench."

"If I'm not mistaken, he already used his dribble."
