Dallas Mavericks File Official Protest Over Loss To Golden State

On Wednesday, the Dallas Mavericks fell to the Golden State Warriors in a blockbuster Western Conference showdown 127-125, and during the game, it was an unnatural play that was making headlines around social media.

In that play, the Mavericks defended the wrong end for an inbound pass, leading the Warriors to score an uncontested layup, and after this, it's safe to say that losing a critical game by two points hurts quite a lot.

Now, the Mavericks have confirmed they are officially putting in a protest to the NBA for this play, as they claim that the referees changed their decision of Mavericks ball to Warriors ball, and instead of informing Dallas, who had already set up in their offensive end of this, they simple gave the Warriors the ball. 
Obviously it's hard to tell exactly what happened from the broadcast, but plays like this don't happen often at all, and for the Mavericks to feel this strongly about it, they believe they have been done wrong. So we will see how this plays out in the coming days, and if the NBA is able to make a ruling before too much time passes.
