hihofink said:On a side note, game 3 of the 98 playoffs, the bulls won at the buzzer with an alley oop from out of bounds. The reason this occured is that the nets only had four players on the floor. Should that have been allowed? I guess so...if the ball is given to the opposition, and nets are stupid enough to only have four players on the court, it is the nets fault.
I fully understand, but the rules do not permit this, what if this had cost us the game?hihofink said:This is why the refs must make the call about the shotclock from now.
I think the official scorer would normally correct that.lukewarmplay said:actually, there was only time put back on the clock because it was a shot clock violation. if it had counted, it would have been a quarter-ending field goal, and as such, reviewable under the instant replay rule. now what i don't know if is what ian said was right, if they're only allowed to look at the game clock and not the shot clock.
on a side note, what about that extra point the nets got against memphis, when kidd's two-pointer was called a 3 by the scoreboard operator? the
teams and refs never noticed that, did they? i've never seen that before.
