New York Knicks forward Lou Amundson stopped dribbling at three-point line en route to a layup… and the referees didn’t call a traveling violation.

Well, it’s certainly hard to argue with that criticism when considering what New York Knicks forward Lou Amundson got away with on Sunday.
During the Knicks’ contest against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Amundson stole the ball and pulled off one of the most blatant travels one will ever see en route to a layup.
Take a look at the terrible travel below:
Yep, you saw that correctly. Amundson stopped dribbling at the three-point line, yet no travel was called. Perhaps the best part of the video is the laughter from the announcers who can’t comprehend how Amundson was able to get away with the violation.
Unfortunately for Amundson and the Knicks, the no-call was the only break the team caught on Sunday. Cleveland blew out New York 101-83 in a game that was more lopsided than the final score even suggests.
Amundson is averaging 3.6 points, 3.8 rebounds and .7 blocks per game this season.
