League behind referees' decision

November 12, 2009

The NBA says the review that overturned a winning shot by the Bulls' Brad Miller was correct and handled appropriately.

Referees looked at video replay for about three minutes before determining that Miller's shot came after the final buzzer, giving the Nuggets a 90-89 victory in Chicago on Tuesday night. Though a review is supposed to be completed in a two-minute period, crew chief Mark Wunderlich then asked the truck if there were any additional angles.

NBA spokesman Tim Frank said "the replay was handled by the book and the referee made the right decision."

•The Wizards signed free-agent guard Earl Boykins, who played in Italy last season.
