Daily video: Wolves radio announcer loses his mind after missed call


Monday's Timberwolves-Mavericks game at Target Center featured a bad missed call by referees, and the reaction by radio announcer Alan Horton was nothing short of priceless.

Minnesota lost the game, 100-98... but the loss might be worth the wonderful highlight that aired live on WCCO.

Now to the video evidence of why Horton was so upset, along with the reaction by FOX Sports North announcers Dave Benz and Jim Petersen.

Wolves coach Rick Adelman should probably anticipate writing a check for his comment about the play following the game, via the Associated Press.

"He got fouled. I just wonder what that would have been if (Dirk) Nowitzki, LeBron James, all the top players in the league. ... A guy reaches in on a last-second shot like that instead of challenging it. ... Maybe they don't understand Kevin (Love) is one of the top five players in the league," Adelman said.

However, the NBA Basketball Operations President Rod Thorn released a statement Tuesday admitting that foul should have been called.

“Through postgame video review, we have determined that Minnesota’s Kevin Love was fouled on the right arm by Dallas’ Shawn Marion while attempting a two-point field goal. Love should have been awarded two free throws with one second left on the clock.”
