The NBA Board of Governors approved the expanded
use of instant replay in two circumstances, beginning with the 2009-10
season, the league announced today. Referees will now be permitted to use
instant replay in the following situations:
- To determine at any point during the game whether a 24-second shot
clock violation occurred prior to the release of a successful field
goal attempt OR prior to a foul being committed.
- To determine during the last two minutes of regulation play and the
last two minutes of any overtime period which player last touched the
ball prior to it going out-of-bounds or whether the ball was last
touched simultaneously by two opponents.
The out-of-bounds proposal was developed by a new instant replay committee
consisting of: Danny Ainge, Boston Celtics Executive Director of Basketball
Operations and General Manager; Rick Carlisle, Dallas Mavericks Head Coach;
Mike Dunleavy, Los Angeles Clippers General Manager and Head Coach; Danny
Ferry, Cleveland Cavaliers General Manager; Daryl Morey, Houston Rockets
General Manager; Sam Presti, Oklahoma City Thunder General Manager; and Ed
Stefanski, Philadelphia 76ers President and General Manager.
will continue to meet to discuss possible new uses of instant replay and
monitor existing uses.
OCTOBER 23, 2008: NBA EXPANDS USE OF INSTANT REPLAY
The NBA Board of Governors voted to allow the expanded use of NBA instant replay by game officials, beginning with the 2008-09 season, the league announced today. The two approved proposals allow referees to use NBA instant replay for the following scenarios:
- To determine at any point during a game whether a field goal was correctly scored as a two or three-point field goal, and, for the purposes of awarding the correct number of free throws, whether a shooter was fouled while taking a two or three-point attempt.
- When the game clock malfunctions during a play concluding with no time remaining on the clock (0:00) at the end of any quarter or overtime period.
With respect to the first scenario, review would occur at the discretion of the game officials, and would be based on a conclusion by the crew that they cannot be reasonably certain whether the shot was a two or three-pointer.
In the second scenario, game officials are currently required to reconstruct the timing of a play occurring during a clock malfunction; the use of NBA instant replay would enable them to do so with substantially greater accuracy.
