Nets Raptors (4 officials?)

According to NBA.COM, four officials were listed for last night's game between Toronto and New Jersey.. When I started watching in the 2nd half, B Fryer, T Washington and M Wunderlich were the officials. But David Jones is also listed in the boxscore I wonder did Jones get hurt in the 1st half?

During the NBA playoffs, they have 4 officials for each game. They use the 3 for the game, and in case one of them goes down there is a backup there ready to go. I heard them talking about it earlier in the playoffs, thats how I know this information

Quite true, but unless he actually works, the alternate's name doesn't appear in the box score. That is why the OP surmised that perhaps one official started the game, got hurt, and then the alternate came in. Hence there were four names listed in the box score.

BTW I have no idea what actually happened with that game.

Perhaps they needed a fourth official to convert everything to metric for the Canadian team!

Is the 4th official still getting all his money? If so, that can be the easiest job in the world (if none of the other 3 gets hurt offcourse ).
