Officiating Rumors

In an ongoing effort to make NBA replay reviews more efficient and less time-consuming, more in-game reviews are expected to be made this season by the league’s staff at the high-tech replay center in Secaucus, N.J. Last season, 72% of reviews were determined by the replay center, and during the 2016-17 season, nearly 87% of reviews will be made from the replay center with the assistance of active referees who are in the center for every game, NBA senior vice president of replay and referee operations Joe Borgia said.
