A Washington Wizards announcer apologized for a questionable reference to Kevin Porter Jr.'s dead father, who was killed in a shooting, after the Houston Rockets guard hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer Wednesday against Washington.
"You've got to give credit. Kevin Porter Jr., like his dad, pulled that trigger right at the right time," Wizards broadcaster Glenn Consor said on-air after Porter's shot gave Washington a 114-111 win.
In social media posts, Consor apologized, saying he mistook Porter Jr. for the son of former NBA player Kevin Porter, who played for the Washington franchise in the 1970s and 1980s.
