DALLAS _ Mark Cuban contacted the NBA about two fouls in Game 4 that he thought incorrectly went against the Dallas Mavericks during Saturday's 84-82 loss in Portland.
But the Mavs' owner said he hasn't heard back from the league.
With 2:15 left in the game and the Mavs ahead, 80-74, a basket by forward Dirk Nowitzki was wiped out when he was whislted for charging into Gerald Wallace. Cuban said he told the league Nowitzki's basket should have counted and Wallace should have been whistled for a foul.
Cuban said: “If the call goes the other way and it’s an and-1 for Dirk instead of a charge, we’re having a completely different conversation right now.''
Earlier, with 6:39 left in the game, Cuban said center Tyson Chandler was mysteriously whistled for a foul against Nicolas Batum in the open court with the Mavs clinging to a 75-64 lead. Cuban also notified the league office of that call.
Asked what is the normal response from the NBA when he notifies them of what he perceived to have been bad calls against his team, Cuban joked that it's: "Neh, neh, neh, neh, neh.''
