View Full Version : NBA issues statement and admits to officiating mistakes

The NBA has agreed with George Karl's assertion that a tip-in late in the Oklahoma City Thunder's 107-103 win -- a basket the Denver Nuggets coach said soured his players' momentum in the game's final minute -- was goaltending.

The league issued a statement Monday afternoon, saying Kendrick Perkins was "improperly credited with a basket that should have been ruled offensive basket interference."

With 1:05 to play, Russell Westbrook launched a jumper from the right side that caromed off the rim, and Perkins' put-back followed, putting the Thunder up 102-101, a lead they wouldn't relinquish Sunday night as they took a 1-0 lead in the first-round playoff series.

"Although a player is permitted to touch the net while the ball is in the cylinder above the rim, Perkins also touched the ball while it was still in the cylinder which is a violation and constitutes goaltending," the NBA said in the statement.

Several Nuggets looked for it to be waved off as basket interference, and Karl was adamant after the game, insisting, "Obviously it was goaltending."

"The ball doesn't get outside the cylinder," Karl said. "It's not even outside the cylinder. So, how can't you see that?

"But that's part of the NBA."

After Perkins' tip-in, Kenyon Martin misfired on a jumper from the left wing that could've put Denver back ahead.

Westbrook then waited patiently deep on the left wing while Durant tried to fight his way open, but had to take matters into his own hands. He darted to the left elbow and hit a jumper to give the Thunder a 104-101 advantage with 22.4 seconds left, and Denver couldn't come up with a response.

Raymond Felton missed a potential tying 3-pointer with 12 seconds left, and Oklahoma City closed it out at the foul line.

In fact, all that kept the Thunder in the game was a hefty advantage at the foul line. They scored half their 24 first-quarter points on free throws, while Denver missed its only attempt.

The Nuggets hit their first seven shots, and 10 of their first 12, to charge ahead 23-10 in the first 7 minutes.

I'm surprised the NBA did this. They almost never admit to their mistakes, especially when it comes to officiating. At least they did something about it. Maybe comments on the Knicks game will follow.

Comments on the Knicks game won't follow, because the foul on Melo was a foul. Whether or not you think it should have been called at that juncture of the game...well, that's up to you, but the NBA has no reason to say that a foul that was a foul shouldn't have been a foul :shrug:

That was one no-call. Yes, it was at a really important time, but still, it's one of those things that sometimes goes your way, and sometimes doesn't. Throughout the duration of the game there were undoubtedly a ton of those iffy calls that went the Knicks way, and a ton that went Boston's way. I know you'll point out that they called the one on Melo, but the refs were letting them play physical all game. A screen set with both feet set is something they had been letting go all game. That's a 50/50 call that didn't go your way.

The NBA won't, and shouldn't, release a statement saying that the ref should have called that. If they did, I'd expect them to comment on them all.

I understand being upset that two calls went Boston's way...but that's how it goes. Unless you review every single play, there's nothing that can be done. The refs have 3 sets of eyes and have to watch 10 different players. The calls even out over the series. It may seem unfortunate, but the NBA doesn't need to apologize for anything.

Its not that foul itself were mad about but that exact same foul was going on between melo and pierce all game and don't call it yet with 30 seconds left all of a sudden you call it in a crucial possession. If they was going on in the finals people would rage

With that said whats done is done and onward to game 2

I understand, but what do you expect the NBA to say? Seriously, tell me how they'd comment on that...I'm curious. Because a foul is a foul. They could say that the refs must 100% call every play the same throughout the game, but you know what, that's impossible. I get why Knick fans are pissed, and I'd be too if it happened to my team, but it was a foul. That's all there is to it, and the NBA can't apologize for that.

Im not expecting them to do anything because i know there not gonna do anything. Ive seen worse calls(Lakers/Kings 2002, Spurs/Suns 2007). Im just stating the calls were just really bad at the end of the game

Nothing we can do just move on to the next one and hopefully a call doesnt determine a game

Cool, we're still 1-0. I was being objective about this whole thing, but since no one else is being objective about it I'm not going to be.

The fact that everyone is saying "that's why the Nuggets lost the game" has urked me to the point where I don't even feel bad at all. They lost because of poor fourth quarter execution and missed free throws, not because of one call.

Yeah the Nuggets got robbed the Refs GAVE the Thunder 2 points.


And Com'on Knicks fans its embarrassing already the Knicks lost nothing else to it calls could of gone either way but STILL Ray Allen had to hit that shot to get the points and Melo had to hit his and missed get over.


There will be no statement on the NBA appologizing to the Knicks cause there is no need for it.... There were plenty of missed calls for BOTH teams let me ask you this...


Should the NBA go through EVERY game and appologize for EVERY MISSED call theres been plenty in these playoffs. Thats just stupid... The Thunder were GIVEN points the Celtics were not(as good a shooter as Ray is) thats a HUGE DIFFERENCE.

Melo made a foul and it was called. Technically it was the correct call, it was just not a call that is usually made at the end of a game.

The calls made on Melo and the non-call on KG are completely objective, whereas the goal tending call is in the rulebook and is not objective. The NBA is not going to comment on objective calls, but when they are wrong they will admit it, just like the NCAA admitted they were wrong about that infamous game this past month.

The Melo one hurt, but once again, that's not the main issue here. The refs clearly blew a call that literally determined the game. I guess the refs thought TD was an uncoordinated klutz that decided to trip himself with the game on the line.

So the Knicks fan does not want to count a valid argument about the Melo call but wants to count a call that would have benefited the Knicks.

Look my point is the Melo call was accurate and as I said no one can complain about the officials making a correct call and as I said you can get on them for a call they missed. Its not personal its one they saw and called one they either didn't see or didn't see as a penalty.

Exactly then they shouldn't be apaologzing for the Denver-Thunder game either. "Sorry" doesn't change the fact that Denver is down 0-1. I don't expect or need an apology from Stern, or of the other robot's working for the NBA. Cuz you and I both know what happened.

Nobody is crying that is was a foul because it was but why call the foul when the ref hasnt done that all game yet do it with 30 seconds left in the game. Same thing with the OKC/Den game with the off interference

What does this have to do with Knick fans blowing up the forum about how how they hate refs???

Are you serious?:cry::cry:

You still here? Remember I told you worry about N.O.

If they were wrong then they should replay the last 1:06 of the game. I know they have replayed for mistakes in the past. Does anyone know the criteria on what constitutes replaying some of the game?

Thanks for nothing. It's not like the outcome is changed any.

Yeah thats what I was thinking, what do they think this makes Nuggets fans feel better or something? If anything it hurts more.

Exactly its like umm thanks commish for admitting your refs are the worst in all the major 4 sports!! I know we don't have a super star so we won't get any make up calls:rolleyes:!!

I like how you deleted half of my post, you know the part that addresses what your talking about here.

the rest of your post was irrelevant to what PC was saying.

You guys still had plenty of time to win or tie. Why not be pissed about Melos poor decision with the basketball in the final seconds. Complain till your red in the face, you're still down a game. I really hope your knicks aren't dwelling on it as much as the fans are or else they have already lost game 2.

'Melos poor shooting night has nothing to do with that atrocious non-call.

The rest of my post is what you refuted and said I didn't say.

See if I edited your post then I can say you said rest your PC and claim its off topic or irrelevant but in essence what I'd be doing is lying to disguise my point, make another poster look bad and try and sound like I'm saying something that I'm not.

I'm a lot of things but I don't lie to make a point like you have in your last two posts. I'm adding you to my ignore list since your dishonest and don't care about facts. You obviously don't care what other posters say when you refute what they say by quoting them and deleting the part of there quote to make it seem like its not what they say it just fits what your claiming they didn't say...It just makes you a liar and disingenuous.

Well had he defered to another team mate maybe it would not of come down to a blown call. If your 5-17 at that point and Amare's clearly having the better night, you dont take that shot.

Yeah the Nuggets got robbed the Refs GAVE the Thunder 2 points.


And Com'on Knicks fans its embarrassing already the Knicks lost nothing else to it calls could of gone either way but STILL Ray Allen had to hit that shot to get the points and Melo had to hit his and missed get over.


There will be no statement on the NBA appologizing to the Knicks cause there is no need for it.... There were plenty of missed calls for BOTH teams let me ask you this...


Should the NBA go through EVERY game and appologize for EVERY MISSED call theres been plenty in these playoffs. Thats just stupid... The Thunder were GIVEN points the Celtics were not(as good a shooter as Ray is) thats a HUGE DIFFERENCE.

The refs basically gave ray allen the shot. im not complaining im just saying the outcome wouldve been different if they made the right calls late in the game. usually at the end of games they dont call fouls at all. But the refs did call a foul one way and not the other with seconds left on the clock. to me the knicks dont deserve anything from the league, but people should realize it wasnt it is what it is on to game 2

but melo's poor shooting night did cost you the win
blame it on the officiating all you want but at the end of the day you still gotta win 4 games

Their next apology should be to the Pacers. Two terrible calls to ensure that they can't come back against Chicago in the final minute.

YEP! 100% true! The offensive foul on Hibbert was a complete joke... And early in the game Rose fouled Price in a 3 pointer, IN FRONT OF THE REF and... no call...

Amar'e was not in position to get the ball. watch the footage before making statements like that. 'Melo should've/could've kicked it to Toney Douglas. in the end, i don't have a problem with 'Melo taking that shot in particular. he's who we want taking that shot. but like i said, NONE of that has to do with the non-call. there is absolutely NO correlation. its irrelevant.

you guys who wanna bash Knicks and their fans (or maybe just like bashing people in general whenever an opportunity presents itself) can say whatever you'd like. Even Paul Pierce said it was a BS call to make and Doc Rivers hinted the same. The KG trip on Douglas needs no words. It doesn't matter WHAT team is playing, they're gonna lose if they get shafted like that in the last minute of a close game.
