Stephen Curry's game-winner beat the Mavericks in Dallas on April 1.

But before that shot, Jermaine O'Neal blocked a shot by former Warriors guard Monta Ellis that led to Curry's shot.

The crowd wanted a goaltending call, and the next day, the NBA admitted that the officials got the call wrong, that O'Neal infact interfered with Ellis' shot.

One person that knew the referees got the call wrong immediately was Mavericks' Public Address announcer Sean Heath, who took to Twitter to call out the officials.

Unfortunately for Heath, the NBA didn't take kindly to those tweets and has reportedly suspended him for two games, according to ESPNDallas.com.

The league reportedly handed down the suspension on Thursday, but the Mavericks requested a delay on the implementation so that they could find a proper replacement for Heath.
