Some bettors were not happy with Corey Kispert after a late layup

Corey Kispert scored a career-high nine points and four rebounds on Wednesday to help the Washington Wizards to a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, but that is hardly the story to some basketball fans.

The Wizards, who were favored by three points by some sportsbooks, managed to pull out the win despite trailing by four points with 30.4 seconds left. Ricky Rubio missed a key free throw, and Kyle Kuzma hit two crucial 3-pointers in the closing seconds to win.

Cleveland looked to be on pace to cover but was in danger after Washington closed the gap late. After Kuzma hit his second 3-pointer, the Cavaliers were down just one point but a missed triple by Darius Garland with 4.3 seconds left sealed the win for Washington.

The Cavaliers looked to be on their way to cover plus-three.

The ball went out of bounds following the missed shot, which set up an inbound play for Washington. The Wizards eventually got the ball to Raul Neto, who quickly passed it off to Kispert for a last-second layup.

Following the layup by Kispert, the Wizards were up by three and eventually won, 97-94. Of course, the game then became a push and those that were set to cash in were no longer able to after Kispert scored with 0.7 seconds remaining.

Some bettors were angry with Kispert, and others were quite happy.

With the rise in sports betting in the United States, situations like this one with Kispert and the Wizards are seemingly happening on a nightly basis. The Wizards may have walked away with the win, but the late layup certainly didn’t bring home the W for some…
