Kings officially appeal result of Memphis game, NBA will decide by Dec. 2nd

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

The Kings are 6-4... or are they?

The NBA today announced that the Sacramento Kings have officially filed a protest over the outcome of last Thursday's loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.  From the press release:

The National Basketball Association announced today that the Sacramento Kings have protested the team's 111-110 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on November 13 at FedExForum.  The basis for the Kings' protest is that Courtney Lee's game-winning shot should have been disqualified as having been made after time expired.  Under the protest procedures in the NBA Constitution, Memphis and Sacramento each will have an opportunity to submit evidence in support of its position and the protest will be decided by December 2.

Funnily enough, the Kings play the Memphis Grizzlies once more on November 30th before this ruling will be decided.  Regardless of the outcome of this ruling, let's at least win that one, and leave no questions about it.
