Mavs Don’t Want Your Apology, NBA

by May 11, 2009

The League admitted that its refs blew the call at the end of the Nuggets/Mavs game on Saturday night, but this only made the Dallas Mavericks angrier about the outcome: “About two hours after the game, the NBA released this statement from league vice president Joel Litvin: ‘At the end of the Dallas-Denver game this evening, the officials missed an intentional foul committed by Antoine Wright on Carmelo Anthony, just prior to Anthony’s three-point basket.’ How did Nowitzki and the Mavericks feel upon about hearing the admission? ‘If I was the league, I wouldn’t say that,’ Nowitzki said Sunday. ‘I don’t think it makes anybody feel better. We don’t get the last seven seconds back, to kind of play it over again. So more than anything, I think it made it worse.'”
