Posted Apr 18 2011 5:25PM

NEW YORK -- The NBA has issued the following statement regarding a play in Oklahoma City's 107-103 win over the Denver Nuggets last night in Game 1 of the Western Conference First Round:

"Kendrick Perkins was improperly credited with a basket that should have been ruled offensive basket interference with 1:05 remaining in last night's game. Although a player is permitted to touch the net while the ball is in the cylinder above the rim, Perkins also touched the ball while it was still in the cylinder which is a violation and constitutes goaltending."
