During Game 1 of the Denver Nuggets vs Oklahoma City Thunder game last night, center Kendrick Perkins interfered with a basket with 1:05 left in the close game. The refs didn't call it, but clearly Perkins did interfere with it. The Thunder went on to win the game and go one up on the Nuggets. Today the NBA released this statement about the play:


"Kendrick Perkins was improperly credited with a basket that should have been ruled offensive basket interference with 1:05 remaining in last night's game. Although a player is permitted to touch the net while the ball is in the cylinder above the rim, Perkins also touched the ball while it was still in the cylinder which is a violation and constitutes goaltending."

Well, that's that I guess. Sorry Denver.
