If the NBA wants to put a rule in place that restricts when in a game a coach can and can't use his timeouts based on the score, they should put it in the rules, and if it isn't in the rules, the ref should be disciplined.
Of course, if there is such a rule, please let me know. But I'm pretty sure this was an autonomous decision by a ref who didn't have the power to make that decision.
if you havent noticed.. the NBA is very selective when it comes to their policies
thats the exact reason as to why KG wasnt suspended for his incident with Fyre (slapped him in the balls AND stuck his foot underneath Frye to land on while he was in the air) part of it had to do with it being KG, but also because the Celtics had the Lakers in the next game.
