NBA to Expand Instant Replay
After 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.
