NBA Stands Behind No Call On Plumlee's Block On James

The Brooklyn Nets are 4-0 against the Miami Heat this season in large part to a major block by rookie Mason Plumlee on LeBron James with less than five seconds remaining in Brooklyn’s 88-87 victory over Miami on Tuesday.

The block had some people clamoring that James was fouled, and a call should’ve been made. Well, no matter what you believe should’ve been the call, the NBA has determined that the officials made the right call on the play.

From Adi Joseph of USA Today:

When watching the replay, even slowly, it’s hard to clearly tell if he hit the ball or James first. In my opinion, it looks like he got the ball with his pinky just before hitting James. And even though it’s only a pinky, it’s still him hitting the ball first.
