Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has never been shy about criticizing the NBA’s officiating. But he had good reason to be mad Wednesday night, if what he wrote on Twitter is to be believed. 

In a bizarre scene late in the third quarter of Wednesday’s game between the Mavs and Golden State Warriors in Dallas, Warriors forward Kevon Looney scored the easiest two points you’ll ever see. Looney received an inbounds pass and scored a layup without a single Mavericks defender in the vicinity. 

The reason, according to Cuban, is because the Mavericks were told it was their ball, so players were on the other side of the court. Cuban claims the refs changed the call during a timeout and never told the Mavericks, giving the Warriors the ball and a crucial two points in what turned out to be a 127-125 loss after the Mavs’ Reggie Bullock hit a 3-pointer with .1 seconds to go.
