Stat Correction! Raptors tie franchise record for largest margin of victory

Just when you thought things couldn't get any better from last night's win over the Bucks the NBA officials made a correction to one of  the Bucks baskets made by John Henson in garbage time on Friday night.

The NBA announced Saturday that a scoring error was made during the Milwaukee Bucks-Toronto Raptors game on Nov. 21 at Air Canada Centre, which impacted the final score of the game but not the final outcome of the game. Bucks forward John Henson was incorrectly credited with a 3-point field goal when he made a jump shot in the lane with 1:44 remaining in the fourth quarter. The game statistics have been corrected and the final score of the game is Toronto 124, Milwaukee 82. Henson's scoring total has been changed to six points in the official box score.
Sounds like someone was feeling bad for the Milwaukee Bucks in the fourth quarter and gave them a tiny favor at the scorer's table. I'm all for integrity in the officiating but when it's a margin of victory of this size, does it really matter? Well it does, because the Raptors now officially tie their largest margin of victory with a 42-point win which ties back to a win over the Miami Heat back in March 2008.
