The NBA office admitted that a critical charge call on Dallas Mavericks guard O.J. Mayo in the final seconds of Tuesday's 106-104 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers was incorrect.
The call occurred with 1.5 seconds remaining in a tie game at the Rose Garden.
"After review at the league office, the video replay confirmed the play should have been ruled a blocking foul as Portland's Ronnie Price did not get his body directly in Mayo's path prior to him starting his upward shooting motion," an NBA statement read. "Mayo should have been granted two free throws."
I still can't believe they called that a charge.
the blocking call was clear as f-ing day and those morons f-ed it up.
shit was a huge blow to the Mavs playoff chances.
