Following the crazy final seconds of Thunder-Spurs Game 2, NBA crew chief Ken Mauer was asked by a pool reporter about the final inbound play in which Thunder guard Dion Waiters looked to elbow Spurs guard Manu Ginobili.

Mauer said after review Waiters should have been called for an offensive foul. The transcript from pool reporter Mike Monroe:

Question: Can you explain what you saw on the inbounds play with 13.5 seconds remaining when Dion Waiters appeared to make contact with Manu Ginobili?

Mauer: "On the floor, we did not see the foul on the play. However, upon review we realize and we agree that we should have had an offensive foul on the play. It's a play that we have never seen before, ever, but we feel we should have had an offensive foul on Waiters."

Question: Had an offensive call been made on Waiters, what rule would have been applied to a foul committed before throw-in?

Mauer: "An offensive foul. Possession Spurs."

What wasn't asked of Mauer, however, was a question about Ginobili's foot being on the line when he was defending the inbound pass.


Here's some context from former Executive Vice President of the NBA and current Turner Sports analyst Stu Jackson:

And Ginobili in postgame:

"Didn't you see it?," Ginobili said. "I was trying to rip the ball and he kind of created room with his elbow, but things happen. It's a very awkward play, doesn't happen very often, so I guess they didn't see it.

"I don't know what it is, to tell you the truth, what type of violation it is. It had to have been something. But again, it's not that play that decided anything because we got the steal, we got the shot, we got an offensive rebound so I really don't know. I've never seen a play like that."
