The New York Knicks did more than complain about two non-calls in the final minute of Game 1 against the Celtics. They sent tape of two controversial plays to the league office, according to an NBA source.
The Knicks had problem with Kevin Garnett’s collision with Toney Douglas that preceded Ray Allen’s game-winning 3-pointer with 11.6 seconds left. And they also pointed out to the NBA that Delonte West ran onto the court after Allen’s 3-pointer to chest bump Allen and the Knicks wanted a technical foul for six players on the court.
According to the source, the NBA admitted that Garnett’s trip of Douglas, who was chasing Allen, was a foul while West’s running onto the court would have been ruled a delay of game.
