DALLAS, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The Dallas Mavericks in-house PA announcer has been suspended for two games by the NBA after going on a twitter rant bashing the officials following the Mavs loss to the Golden State Warriors on April 1st.

According to reports, PA announcer Sean Heath will be suspended from his duties beginning with Saturday’s final regular season home game against the Phoenix Suns.

Heath drew the foul for tweeting at the NBA saying a referee ‘blew the goaltending call and cost the Mavs the game’.

But Heath didn’t stop there, tweeting:

But then it got a little nasty with a tweet accusing the NBA that the league has a reputation of having ‘rigged’ games:

Heath will serve the rest of the suspension in the first home game of the NBA playoffs, if the Mavs are able to move on. If not – he will have to sit out for next season’s home opener.

The day after the game, the NBA confirmed the missed call saying a block by Golden State’s Jermaine O’Neal that set up Stephen Curry’s game-winning shot in overtime at Dallas should have been ruled goaltending.
