Protested NBADL Game To Resume Play During 2014 NBA D-League Showcase

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA D-League's Mad Ants & Legends will resume a previously protested contest during the 2014 NBA D-League Showcase next month.

Earlier this season, the NBA D-League granted a protest by the Ron Howard-led Mad Ants following a loss to the Devin Ebanks and Melvin Ely-led Texas Legends. Just the second time in league history such a protest has been granted, the two teams will resume play and finish the contest under question during the 2014 NBA D-League Showcase next month.

For more, see below for the D-League's official announcement:

The NBA Development League today announced that the protested game between the Fort Wayne Mad Ants and Texas Legends, which began on Nov. 22 at Texas, will be resumed on Jan. 7, 2014 at approximately 9:35 p.m. PT, following the conclusion of the day's Showcase contests in Reno, Nev.

The game will resume play with 0.9 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter and the score tied at 99. Fort Wayne will in-bound the ball in the back court, at the foul line extended, and will be shooting in front of Texas' bench. With the resumption, both teams will be in the penalty, and Texas will have one timeout remaining.

Players on either team's current active rosters will be eligible to play on Jan. 7, with players who participated on Nov. 22 retaining their original personal foul totals. Players added to the roster since Nov. 22 will have zero personal fouls.

The Mad Ants originally protested the game after an incorrect technical foul was assessed to the team following an error by the official scorer pertaining to the number of time outs the Mad Ants had remaining. As a result of the technical foul, Texas was awarded a free throw, which Chris Douglas-Roberts made to give the Legends a 100-99 lead and possession of the ball with 0.9 seconds remaining in the game.

Though Douglas-Roberts originally hit what went on to be the winning free-throw, the swingman has since been signed by the Charlotte Bobcats.
