Found March 19, 2013 on Bush League Chronicle:
The Chicago Bulls thought they had taken a lead over the Denver Nuggets thanks to a tip-in by Joakim Noah during the closing seconds in overtime Monday night, but the basket was wiped off when it was ruled offensive interference.Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, who has a reputation for being a fiery guy, proceeded to rip into the officials once the call was made. The bucket was originally ruled good before the officials gathered, consulted the video monitor, and determined Noah was guilty of offensive interference.Kevin Fehr, Ken Mauer, and Kane Fitzgerald were among the refs who received an ear full from Thibodeau. Bulls forward Luol Deng eventually restrained his head coach before things escalated any more."It's a tough play," Thibodeau said afterwards. "From my angle, it looked like it was a good play, it looked like the ball was short."Chicago did have time for one more play after the dust settled with the critical call. But Nuggets forward Andre Iguodala knocked away the final inbound pass to nail down Denver's 12 straight victory, 119-118.Via USA TODAY
