NBA Office Says Mavericks Fouled Kevin Love on Final Shot [VIDEO]
For once in my life, it was the other team getting screwed over in a call.
I am a huge Dallas Mavericks fan and I watch every game that I can. On Monday, the Mavericks were in Minnesota playing the Timberwolves. The Timberwolves had the basketball with three seconds left and of course they throw it to all star forward Kevin Love for the final shot. He misses the shot, no foul and the game ends. Well, not really. This statement was released today from the NBA.
NBA President of Basketball Operations Rod Thorn: “Through postgame video review, we have determined that Minnesota’swas fouled on the right arm by Dallas’ while attempting a two-point field goal. Love should have been awarded two free throws with one second left on the clock.”
What does this mean? Absolutely nothing, I guess trying to make the Timberwolves feel better about the loss. I will admit watching the game live, I thought Love was fouled. Just remember this moment when you feel like your team got screwed over, the Mavericks got a freebie for once.
