Kings, Pelicans replay 18.9 seconds of 1st half after bizarre officials’ mishap

DeMarcus Cousins

The Sacramento Kings 102-94 win over New Orleans on Tuesday night wasn’t just another loss for the still-winless Pelicans, but also one of bizarre circumstances.

The referees ordered both teams to replay 18.9 seconds of the second quarter after the halftime break because they miscounted the number of fouls in the first half.

A foul late in the second quarter by Pelicans small forward Solomon Hill on Kings center DeMarcus Cousins should have put Sacramento in the bonus and Cousins at the line, but the officials lost track of the number of fouls.

This unusual mistake was brought up at halftime, a basket by E’Twaun Moore was nullified, and Cousins took two free throws. He made both, changing the official halftime score to 53-46.

Talk about a weird game, huh?
