Mavericks Lose Protest Of Game Against Warriors

The Dallas Mavericks have lost their protest over their 127-125 loss to the Golden State Warriors on March 22nd.

The protest contended that referee did not properly administer an out-of-bounds call and subsequent throw-in that created an uncontested field goal by the Warriors.

The incident occurred with nearly 14 minutes remaining in the game and the Mavericks took the lead twice in the final four minutes.

The NBA said that the Mavericks were not deprived of a fair opportunity to win the game and the protest failed on that basis alone.

The NBA also concluded that although the referees could have taken steps to better manage the situation, it did not provide a basis for upholding a game protest.
