Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve was livid in her postgame news conference following her teams loss in the decisive Game 5 on Thursday night to Los Angeles.After congratulating the Sparks for winning the WNBA championship with a 77-76 victory over the Lynx, Reeve lit into the officiating.Its really unfortunate that players continually put themselves out there, playing and competing at a really high level. Whether it was the 8-second call in LA or the game today, doesnt matter, OK? The game today, its not fair to the players, Reeve said. Its not enough just to apologize or send out a memo that they got something wrong, OK? These players are so invested and something must be done about the officiating in this league because its not fair to these great players we have.Reeves remarks came after the officials didnt review a shot by Nneka Ogwumike with 1:12 left in the game that appeared on replays to have come after the shot clock had expired. The officials never reviewed the play, which gave Los Angeles a 73-71 lead.By WNBA rules, in the final 2 minutes of a game, plays are only reviewable immediately. Earlier in the game, time can elapse off the clock and they can still be reviewed.It was reviewable at the time when she shot it, Reeve said. The referees at that point didnt think anything was wrong. They didnt understand it was the end of the clock. They didnt hear the shot clock. When they put the ball in play, the play is no longer reviewable.This wasnt the first missed call in this series. In Game 4, the Lynx benefited when the officials didnt call an 8-second violation late in that game. The WNBA admitted the next day that its officials had missed that call.Last season, in the Western Conference finals, the Lynx were aided by a foul with 1.5 seconds left in a tie game against Phoenix. The league said that foul should not have been called.Its unfortunate were having this discussion, Reeve said. The number of people that have contacted us and said this shot was no gd, its unfortunate. I mean, I dont know what happens from there. Maybe they still win. I dont know. Thats why I dont want to take anything away from LA.Lynx star Maya Mre didnt realize the controversy until asked about it afterward in a sullen losing locker rm.OK, that doesnt make me feel any better, Mre said.She said she thought she saw one of the officials signal for a review and was surprised to hear that didnt occur, the details of the final minutes clearly lost in the haze of defeat.Well, it doesnt mean anything now, Mre said.Authentic Jaleel Scott Jersey .
