On the court, the major story has been New Orleans’ stunning rally from a 24-point deficit to force overtime, where the Pelicans are on the verge of stealing a crucial win.
However, the off-court replays have bogged down the end of the contest, resulting in long, boring delays. As you can imagine, this has been met with spirited backlash.
NBA analysts and fans alike are livid at the replay system.
The neverending replay reviews freaking suck. Come on Adam Silver get control of your sport. THIS SUCKS.

I hate replays worse than I miss bad calls.

Replay/Review is absolutely killing the @NBA sapping all the fun/drama from games when they’re under 2 minutes.

Watching the end of a close NBA game is maddening. Replay on every possession

Personally, I’m a fan of replay in general. It is usually better to get the call right than have a game changed on a mistake by an official.
However, when reviews drag on or are used to scrutinize the most insignificant or mundane calls, that’s when things get out of hand.
Today would be one of those times.
