Sunday night news broadcast of Portland, Maine, ABC affiliate WMTW, anchored by News 8’s own Meghan Torjussen, offered an odd sports update on Game 4 on the Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat.

“The Boston Celtics, hosting the Miami Heat in Boston for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals,” Torjussen said. “I guess the game just ended … it ended in a tie. This is what my producer is telling me right now.”

At that point, a full-screen graphic reading “Miami 89, Boston 89” appeared on the screen.

For basketball fans this is a horrible error as NBA never end in a tie.

Boston won the game in overtime, 93-91.
