The NBA will begin revealing whether it determined referees’ crunch-time calls to be right or wrong.
Starting Monday and continuing throughout the playoffs, the league will release play-by-play reports of all calls and relevant no-calls in the final minutes of close games. Such information had been shared only internally.
The assessments will be released by 5 p.m. the day after each game and will stand as the league’s comment on whether the most-disputed calls were correct. The reports will focus on the last two minutes of games that were within five points at the two-minute mark and all of any overtime periods.
Each play is reviewed by a senior basketball operations manager or senior referee manager. The reports will say how the play was graded — correct or incorrect — and will be accompanied by a comment and video link. The reports will be posted at NBA.com/official and also on the league’s media site.
