Postgame – Washington Wizards at Portland Trail Blazers – March 11, 2017

NBA Official Rodney Mott met with pool reporter Joe Freeman of The Oregonian after the game between the Wizards and Trail Blazers tonight. Here is the transcript of that interview:

Pool Reporter Joe Freeman (Oregonian): Did you see Markieff Morris step out of bounds live?

Rodney Mott: “No I did not.”

Q: Why did you not review Washington’s final possession?

Rodney Mott: “That out of bounds is not a reviewable matter. It’s not a trigger.”

Q: Why isn’t that play reviewable?

Rodney Mott: “That is the rule, it’s not a trigger.”

Q: Have you seen the replay since the game ended and what would your ruling be had you been able to review it?

Rodney Mott: “Yes, we looked at it and if it was reviewable, it would have been called out of bounds, Portland’s ball.”
