The NBA has reportedly denied the Houston Rockets of their protest of the loss to the San Antonio Spurs, per Shams Charania of the Athletic.

Per the statement of the league, Houston had sufficient time to cover the error, when the dunk of James Harden did not count.

At the same time, the NBA has disciplined the three referees for misapplying the coach’s challenge.
