View Full Version : Expanded Video

NEW YORK -- NBA referees will be able to use instant replay on shot-clock and out-of-bounds calls this season.

The NBA Board of Governors approved the expanded use on Friday.

Referees will be permitted to check replay to see if the 24-second clock expired before a successful shot or a foul.

They can also consult video during the last 2 minutes of regulation and any overtime period to determine which player last touched the ball prior to it going out of bounds.

I think that might add some lag to the game considering that
a) we have new refs
b) players will pressure them to use replay
c) more commercial breaks
