Talking Finley's controversial three sends Spurs past Kings

Finley's controversial three sends Spurs past Kings
Posted 40m ago

SACRAMENTO (AP) — Michael Finley's three-pointer with 1.3 seconds left counted despite an apparent shot-clock violation, and the San Antonio Spurs came from behind for a 95-92 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night.

Tony Parker had 25 points and nine assists for the Spurs, who moved into a tie with Houston atop the Southwest Division with two games left.

San Antonio kept Tim Duncan out of uniform to rest his sore knees, and the NBA-worst Kings led for most of the night before Finley's winner — even if television replays appeared to show the ball still in Finley's hands with the shot clock at 00.

Referee Dan Crawford's crew explained that shot-clock violations are unreviewable to irate Sacramento coach Kenny Natt, whose Kings lost their eighth straight. Sacramento finished its Arco Arena schedule with the worst home winning percentage in franchise history at 11-30 (.268).

Most spurs fans agree, this should not have counted. That play is all on the referees.
