Cuban gripes about officiating in Game 4

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says officials missed two crucial calls during Dallas’ 18-point meltdown during the fourth quarter of a Game 4 loss to Portland.

Speaking to reporters prior to Game 5, Cuban said he was willing to be fined ”just so that it’s on the record” that he believes the mistakes were made.

He was most irked by a charge called on Dirk Nowitzki with 2:16 left and the Mavericks leading 80-74. Said Cuban: ”I thought they missed it. I’m positive they missed it.”

The other play was when Dallas’ Tyson Chandler picked up his fifth foul with 6:40 left.
