NBA: Refs Missed Kevin Durant's Double-Dribble On Final Possession Versus Heat 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Feb 12, 2019 5:54 am

The NBA announced that Kevin Durant should have been called for a discontinued dribble in what turned out to be the Golden State Warriors final possession in a 120-118 win over the Miami Heat.


The Warriors hit two free throws after the missed call to win the game.


Durant seemingly dribbled the ball off of Justise Winslow, although a replay confirmed that the ball did not touch Winslow.


"It's a double-dribble. Everybody can see it. Those are tough calls to make but everybody saw it. It's right there in front of everybody. That should be a violation and you can't miss those calls. But we had our chances. Like I said, it was back and forth. The officials -- so let's be clear about it, so I do not get fined -- that's not why we lost," said Erik Spoelstra after the game.
