Default Re: Blazers score basket against Celtics using six players on the court

Well as a ref you canīt go back and change what you like in a game. Ie if a player shoots what the back ref thinks is a three and he signals for a three and the front ref sees itīs only a two, you have to stop the game immidieatly and change the basket. If you let the play continue and the other team scores, you canīt go back and change the three.

Thatīs why this situation is weird because it looks like they stop play directly after the basket is scored.

Then again, youīve got three extremely well educated official, youīve the secretary and a couple of court officials and what not so Iīm sure the situation was resolved correctly.
