When I watched it live, I was thoroughly convinced Anthony more or less swatted it out of bounds with both hands. I was surprised how close it was when I saw the replay though. I still believe it ended up hitting Anthony last, but I do understand where the lack of conclusive evidence may have been brought into the picture. Some of those angles seem to kind of leave the door open though again, I was pretty certain it was undoubtedly Anthony's last touch.
I bet if they had to pick a call, they'd have given the ball to L.A. However, having already called it New York's way and needing absolutely definitive evidence to prove otherwise, I can see how that mistake was made.
