Mavs’ savage tweet after OT loss to Lakers after missed Dwight Howard call
The Dallas Mavericks are not happy after the referees missed a game-changing call in their 119-110 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Danny Green sent the game to overtime with a buzzer-beating corner 3-pointer. However, video replays of the play showed that Seth Curry could have made it in time to guard Green had it not been for Dwight Howard grabbing and holding onto him.
The Mavs, of course, are disappointed that the officials did not call for a foul on the play. The team then took it to Twitter to take a shot at Howard and the Lakers.

Sure enough, Curry was still able to recover and contest Green’s shot, but it was too late as the ball found itself at the bottom of the net, tying the game at 103-all and setting up the extra five minutes.
Had an offensive foul been called, the Mavs would have been in a good position to seal the game through free throws.
The Lakers went on to outscore the Mavs 16-7 in overtime and notched their fourth straight victory of the season, dropping Dallas to a 3-2 record in the process.
This is not the first time Dallas took to social media to argue questionable calls that cost them a match, as owner Mark Cuban earlier spoke out about the new rule “Coach’s Challenge” in the team’s 121-119 defeat to the Portland Trail Blazers earlier this week.
