The Minnesota Timberwolves lost to the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night in controversial fashion. With the T-Wolves trailing by two and three seconds remaining, Kevin Love received the inbound pass and tried to get a shot off. It appeared that he was fouled by Shawn Marion, but the officials chose to let the play go and time expired.
It was hard to tell if Love’s foot was on the line, but he should have been given a chance to tie the game with two free throws at the very least. Timberwolves radio play-by-play announcer Alan Horton was outraged.
Horton seemed most angry with referee Ed Malloy. After the game, Horton took to Twitter to remind fans of a game between the Timberwolves and Miami Heat last season — one that Malloy worked — where several controversial calls were met with a chorus of boos at the Target Center.
