The NBA corrected the point total of Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry in Game 6 from 29 to 31.

His last basket in Saturday's victory over the Oklahoma Thunder was mistakenly credited to Draymond Green, but the error was corrected Sunday.

A two-point change in a player's scoring total may not seem important, but the over/under in Las Vegas for Curry's total in that game was 30.5.

Curry's 31 points made the "over" the winning bet, so bettors who had thought they won actually lost, and betters who thought they had lost actually won.

It is unclear how the sports books handle this kind of scenario, though.

"Vegas is split on this," Jay Kornegay, the Las Vegas Hilton's race and sports book director, told the Los Angeles Times. "It's all up to the house rules, and even how you interpret those rules."
