NBA: Refs' call correct in Nuggets-Bulls review

BY foxsports • November 11, 2009

The NBA says the review that overturned a winning shot by Chicago's Brad Miller was correct and handled appropriately.




Referees looked at video replay for about three minutes before determining that Miller's shot came after the final buzzer, giving Denver a 90-89 victory Tuesday. Though a review is supposed to be completed in a two-minute period, crew chief Mark Wunderlich then asked the truck if there were any additional angles.

He was provided with the overhead view that showed the ball was still on Miller's fingertips at the buzzer.

NBA spokesman Tim Frank says "the replay was handled by the book and the referee made the right decision," adding there was no issue with the officials taking extra time.
