The Lynx didnt get the ball into the front court in the required eight seconds.After reviewing postgame video, we have determined that with 0:17.7 remaining in regulation time, Minnesota released the ball for a pass from the backcourt and the ball was still in the backcourt when the shot clock turned to 0:16, the statement said.

We have to go take it, and thats what we plan on doing in Game 5.Los Angeles coach Brian Agler told The Associated Press in a phone interview Monday night that while he was happy the league reviewed the play, he didnt want to dwell on it.Champions dont make excuses. We had our opportunities, he said.It was the second consecutive year that Minnesota was involved in a blown call late in a playoff game.Last year in the Western Conference finals, the Lynx benefited from a foul with 1.5 seconds left in a tie game against Phoenix.The Mercurys Noelle Quinn directed her inbounds pass to 6-foot-8 center Brittney Griner. Maya Moore deflected that pass, gained control of the ball, began going upcourt, and official Amy Bonner blew the whistle with 1.5 seconds left in Game 2.Moore hit one of two free throws to lift the Lynx to the victory ending the series.The WNBA admitted last year that a foul should not have been called.
