Spurs Use 6-On-5 Power Play Against Mavericks, Still Lose

The Dallas Mavericks held on at home to defeat the Spurs 113-111 and force yet another NBA playoffs Game Seven tonight, and they had to overcome some tough odds to do it. Specifically, 5:6 odds.

That's because San Antonio, down two with 1.3 seconds remaining, put six players out on the court. (Watch the video above if you don't believe us.) The play failed, though as Monta Ellis knocked the ball out of bounds, the Spurs ended up getting another shot at tying or winning the game. That attempt was made with the regulation number of players on the court.


It's another massive blunder for the officials in what's been an embarrassing NBA postseason thus far.
