While the Wizards celebrated, Damian Lillard was seething. The Trail Blazers guard pleaded to the officials that Markieff Morris stepped out of bounds before his go-ahead baseline jumper with 0.4 seconds left. The officials said there was nothing they could do.
That gave Washington a 125-124 overtime victory over Portland on Saturday night. “They said `We can’t review it.’ I guess that’s the rules but I don’t understand why we have all these cameras and all this technology in the arena if we’re not going to be able to review a play that determines a win or a loss,” Lillard said.
