Cuban, Carlisle Blast Refs Following Loss to Warriors

The Dallas Mavericks have lost two close games in a row on controversial calls, and head coach Rick Carlisle and owner Mark Cuban are clearly frustrated.

Down by one in the final seconds of Thursday’s game at Golden State, Brandan Wright drove to the rim and was blocked by Andrew Bogut, who appeared to have “all-ball.”

But the Cuban and Mavericks disagreed.

“Cant wait to see what the NBA says about this no call with 2 secs left. #2gamseinarow,” Cuban tweeted.

“Look, the game came down to the call that wasn’t made,” Carlisle said. “Brandan Wright got hit in the arm and it’s obvious. It’s two (games) in a row.”

 On Tuesday night, O.J. Mayo was incorrectly whistled for a charge in a critical moment at Portland that cost Dallas the game. The NBA issued an apology for blowing the call.
