    Just shows these games are fixed. You review and see no foul BUT STILL stick with your original call. Terrible. Sports is entertainment at the end of the day and I’m tired of being entertained. Lemme see some competition.

    Lou made it up tonight with a clutch 3. Underground GOAT, indeed. Kawhi had a bad start with only 9 pts affer 3 quarters and still ended up 27 pts.

    It’s the *worst flop I’ve seen in over a year.* Lou did not stick his elbow out or anything. Eric Bledsoe recoiled back like he got _punched in the face_ . He should get on Shaqtin in a fool

    These stupid blind calls by refs are the reason I can’t stand watching the NBA anymore like I use to. They are ruining the game. Even a 5 year old could see in reply there wasn’t any foul. Smh

    They tell us the success rate of challenges by quarter, but they don’t tell us how many challenges there are by quarter. They say that from those numbers, it looks like the refs “tighten up” in the 4th quarter, but isn’t it possible that the challenges have a higher success rate in the first quarter because coaches don’t use them unless they feel really strongly, whereas in the 4th quarter coaches aren’t saving them for anything, and so there are more challenges that are just hail mary challenges?

    0:06 I didn’t see the play live Rachel, but I guarantee the officials didn’t call a “defensive foul” on Lou Williams when he was dribbling the ball…

    Flopping isn’t the problem. The problem is the refs are REWARDING flopping, so that encourages more of it. And when you have REPLAY of a flop, and they don’t overturn it, what does that tell you? And I hope the NBA does NOT fine Bledsoe for flopping, because the NBA will admit it’s a flop and are actively encouraging it by refusing to overturn the call. If the league office thinks it’s a flop, but the refs don’t, you have a problem.

    The problem is clearly with the REFS. The refs need to be educated on blowing a whistle when SEEING contact and not based on REACTION. If you didn’t SEE IT, don’t blow the whistle. But this ref blew it anyway, because he is basing his judgment off a REaction and the actual ACTION.

    Retrain your refs to only call fouls on what they see and to completely ignore reactions.

    NBA needs to start giving out fines to officials that call fouls on flops… if you aren’t certain it’s contact and a foul, don’t call it….

    The refs are trash man….like iono what kind of training and test they do each year but they need a better test each and every year…like an eye test to see if u see the foul and what is and isn’t suppose to be called….like I want to see some reaction times for their eyes cuz I feel like they are blind sometimes out there
