The Minnesota Timberwolves comeback from a 21-point deficit only to lose on a controversial non-call was granted the great apology from the NBA…
NBA STATEMENT ON MISSED FOUL CALL LATE IN MAVERICKS-TIMBERWOLVES GAMEDec 31 2013 11:55AM
Rod Thorn, NBA President, Basketball Operations, issued the following statement today regarding a missed foul call late in the fourth quarter of the Dallas Mavericks’ 100-98 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Dec. 30, at Target Center:“Through postgame video review, we have determined that Minnesota’s Kevin Love was fouled on the right arm by Dallas’ Shawn Marion while attempting a two-point field goal. Love should have been awarded two free throws with one second left on the clock.”
So, this spring when the Wolves miss the Playoffs by a game or three, we can just show this apology and get one back. Right? What is the point of the NBA even releasing these statements?
