You should have asked the official scorer if he/she was positive he/she was not missing two points. If he/she was positive (even given all the evidence to the contrary), you have to go with the book.
Should have added that this was the first night for the official scorer (ever) and she did not appear sure of anything, she was actually pretty frazzled.
