NBA admits it: Blazers beat Thunder last night



After reviewing the controversial "goaltending" call against LaMarcus Aldridge (block of Durant layup with 6 seconds in the game) the NBA admitted today that the call was wrong, LA legitimately blocked KD and the Blazers should have won the game by 2 points during regulation.


Here's a link to the NBA officiating website with the explanation: http://www.nba.com/official/

Unfortunately, the NBA does not allow review of goaltending calls and consequently the bad call was allowed to stand. The official record books will show that OKC beat Portland last night, but anyone who saw the play knows the win comes with a huge asterisk.
