Did this Wizards announcer really call an airball as a game-winning shot?

Steve Buckhantz, the television broadcaster for the Washington Wizards, is considered to be a legend in these parts but he had himself an absolutely hilarious folly at the end of the Pistons-Wizards game this evening. The Wizards had a chance to win it on their final possession when they settled for a contested Trevor Ariza threeball and when Buckhantz dropped his famous "DAGGER" call, it appeared that the Wizards won. And he said this even as the Pistons were visibly celebrated on the court while the Wizards looked disappointed. Why? Because Ariza's shot was an airball. Let's go to the videotape.
