Hawks, Heat to replay final 51.9 seconds of Dec. game
NBA: Shaq had only 5 fouls, not 6 in Atlanta's overtime victory

By SEKOU SMITH
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 01/11/08

In a stunning move, the NBA has taken a victory away from the Atlanta Hawks and ordered the team to replay the end of an overtime game against the Miami Heat.

The NBA ruled Friday the Hawks were "grossly negligent" when its statistician crew incorrectly disqualified Heat center Shaquille O'Neal with too many fouls during the Dec. 19 game at Philips Arena. The stats crew, which consists of Hawks employees, keeps track of all scoring and fouls. The crew recognized the error before the end of the game "and didn't do enough to correct the mistake," said Brian McIntyre, the NBA's senior vice president for basketball communications.

For the first time in 25 years, two NBA teams will be forced to replay the end of a game. The Hawks and Heat will replay the final 51.9 seconds of the game March 8 at Philips Arena before that night's regularly scheduled game between the two teams, with the Hawks leading 114-111 in the overtime period. The Hawks were also fined $50,000.

The Hawks have not fired any employees because of the incident. Hawks spokesman Arthur Triche declined comment Friday afternoon when contacted by the Journal-Constitution.

The last time the NBA ordered a game to be replayed was Dec. 14, 1982, when then-commissioner Larry O'Brien upheld a protest by the San Antonio Spurs in their 137-132 double overtime loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Nov. 30 of that year. The teams replayed the finish and the Spurs won 117-114.

In the Hawks-Heat game, the issue involved whether O'Neal had six fouls in the game, which a review of the game tape later revealed he did not. In the NBA, a player is disqualifed after six fouls.

A foul attributed to O'Neal with 3:24 to play in regulation actually was called on Heat forward Udonis Haslem.

The Heat did not protest O'Neal's removal from the game when it happened but raised the issue after the game had ended.

NBA commissioner David Stern ruled that because of this conduct by the Hawks' personnel, Miami suffered a clear competitive disadvantage. At the time he was removed from the game, O'Neal was his team's second-leading scorer and rebounder.

Anyone know where is a good site to find out a team's lineup for that day? (i.e. to confirm whether injured players will be suiting up?). We often read key players will be "game-time decisions" but the lineups should be announced 10-15 mins before tip off so I'm wondering where we can find this out.

Yeah, they're crazy deep. Hail Hail Goorjian, that man is pure genius. I'm glad he's going to be leading the Boomers in Beijing, I can smell a historic medal. Will be sad to see him leave if reports about him looking for new challenges after his current contract expires is true.

Don't discount those Cats yet though ;)

We have size and defence, this tends to do well come playoff time. We need to get a decent ladder position though.

Agree, but I got a little scared when they wiped the Lakers and Jazz with ease on the road recently.

Jordan & Co. would've ripped this team a new one.

Your boys have a reasonable run home, I expect them to get the 4th spot. That Loughton kid can play.

Yeah, Loughton is a gun. We have only seen the best of him in small patches this season due to injury. But he's getting over his foot pains of late and it's showing in his play, very good recently and along with Redhage forms probably the best 3/4 pairing in the league. Good thing about Loughton is he is not only skilled, but tough. It's become a common sight to see him be our 'enforcer' in the paint and hand out hard fouls.

Can't wait for tonight's game, will be there early to see Redhage gain his citizenship :) Looking forward to seeing if Shipp is the goods as well. If so, mark us down as the dark horse for the crown.
