NBA Admits Refs Missed Call On Final Shot

Within the past hour, the NBA has issued a statement admitting that the refs “missed a foul committed” on Kevin Durant’s final 25-foot field goal attempt. The shot fell well short as CJ Miles fouled Durant. Alas, the foul wasn’t called at the time and the Jazz won the game. Even with an apology the game will remain in the L column on OKC’s ledger. For the NBA’s sake, hope that OKC doesn’t end up a half a game or a game behind someone in the Playoff race.

    I know the league has to do this, but it just makes things worse.

    Kevin Durant for MVP. Lebron doesn’t deserve anything this year

    Hopefully this comes up as “give these guys the calls they deserve” in the playoffs. They’ve convinced me they’re for real this year and well into the future.

    The NBA has done this a handful of times this season, so are we to believe that they have only missed a few calls all season?! They should just say they missed a call sometime during that game and not even specify who and what. BTW when the season is over there are no half game differences.

    More than anything, I like how fired up KD was after the no call on his 3 pointer. If he’s legit, like he seems to be, this will just fire him up to do more damage next time Utah & OKC meet – which is likely in the playoffs. I been following OKC closely this year: they’re not yet contenders, but they’re not pretenders either. Once they get some playoff experience, they’ll be dangerous.
