NBA to Expand Instant Replay


NBA to Expand Instant ReplayAfter much discussion concerning instant replay, the NBA has finally decided to expand its use.  USA Today has the details:

Game officials will be able to use instant replay in two cases:

• At any time to determine whether a field goal was properly awarded two or three points and to determine the correct number of free throws on a missed two- or three-point field goal.

• If the game clock malfunctions during a play ending with no time left at the end of a quarter or overtime.

The vote, taken this month, needed the approval of at least 23 clubs. The league expects to make a formal announcement this week.

So, what do you think of this decision?  Will it slow the game down or is it a necessary step to ensure that the official make the right call?  Let us know what you think in the comment section.
