Given what happened last night in Los Angeles, it’s interesting to note the Blue Jackets aren’t the first
terrible team to have complained about a so-called clock malfunction at the Staples Center.
Here’s part of an Associated Press article from January of 2001:
The Lakers’ 113-112 overtime victory over the Vancouver Grizzlies on Jan. 11 was upheld by the NBA despite the Grizzlies’ protest. The Grizzlies argued that a clock malfunction gave the Lakers an extra three-tenths of a second, allowing [Shaquille] O’Neal to make the deciding basket.
In a related story, the Staples Center has changed its name to the Dirty Stinking Cheaters Center.
