Better Late Than Never, I Guess

Remember that Blazers game where they scored on a 6-on-5 play and got to keep the points?  The NBA got around to changing the rule.

If a team is given a technical foul for having too many players, the non-offending team can choose to accept or nullify the action that took place before the whistle blew. If the team playing with five scores, it can keep the points.

Should that team nullify the play, the game clock reverts to the time before the ball was put in play with too many players on the floor.

The rule was announced Thursday and will take effect Friday.
