Phil Jackson responds to what the League had to say about the ending of Game 4… Gotta love the guy.
L.A. Times: Fisher’s 17-foot shot with 6.9 seconds left appeared to graze the rim before hitting Spurs forward Robert Horry and falling out of bounds. The referees, however, said Fisher’s shot was an air ball, leaving the Lakers with only two seconds left on the shot clock. Kobe Bryant’s hasty turnaround 16-footer was short, and the Spurs gained possession with 2.1 seconds to play.
“What did they say about the 24-second clock?” Jackson asked rhetorically. “They didn’t want to go all the way? You’ve got to start peeling that onion a long way back, don’t you, if you start opening it up.”
