For the first time since 1982, the NBA is sending two teams back to the court for a do-over.
The Atlanta Hawks and Miami Heat must replay the final 51.9 seconds of their game last month because the official scorer ruled incorrectly that Shaquille O'Neal fouled out, the league said Friday.
This came down just hours before we lost to the Wizards in overtime. The game never should have gone that far, but we made some mental mistakes down the stretch as usual. There were so many things that frustrated me about that game. I'm not even going to get into it. Any of it. Just know that they are still making rookie mistakes and half of them don't know how to do simple things in critical situations.
Back to this Miami Heat replaying of the game nonsense. I know the Heat filed this appeal a long time ago, but they've only won 8 games, they clearly need to focus on more important things. Like getting into double digit wins sometime soon. Anyway, the fans will get 2 fantastic finishes for the price of one on March 8th, gotta love that. As of right now, the Heat have one less loss and the Hawks have one less win.
In unrelated news, The Pats and Packers won their divisional games.
