Hawks Filing Protest Over Shot Clock Error

by December 31, 2009

For once, the shot clock wasn‘t in the Hawks‘ favor (they were on the road), and now they‘re planning on filing a protest with the League: “As you might imagine, Mike Woodson was pretty steamed. ‘Q: What happened with the apparent shot clock malfunction? A: I’m not going to comment on it at this time. We’re just going to file a protest without a doubt, let the league review it at the two-minute mark and then see what they think. Q: What role did that play in the game? A: We’ve got a one-point lead with the ball going the other way and we’re rushing to get a shot because the clock is not in our favor. You figure it out.”‘
