Wheeler: NBA Referee Scott Foster Apologized To Nate McMillan

Brian Wheeler, the radio play-by-play voice of the Portland Trail Blazers, reports on Twitter that NBA referee Scott Foster apologized to Blazers coach Nate McMillan for a controversial goaltending call on Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge during a Feb. game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. ------------------------------------- Nate told me today Scott Foster apologized to him before the game last night, and said he felt terrible for his bad goaltending call vs. OKC. Nate also said Foster appreciated the way the Blazers' organization handled the situation, saying they could have made it worse for him. ------------------------------------- At the time, McMillan only said that he thought it was a "good block" and that he would send the call in to the league office for review. The NBA admitted that week that Foster's call was incorrect. Later, Blazers president Larry Miller told Blazersedge: "We beat Oklahoma City twice, really, even though the second time we got robbed of the game by the refs. But we beat Oklahoma City in their building and technically, from my perspective, I look at that as a win here." Foster also ejected Blazers center Marcus Camby for shoving Washington Wizards forward Kevin Seraphin on Saturday night. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
