Eh, I don't know I'd go that far. Poor choice with 20-20 hindsight to draw the offensive foul going to the basket when he had an open trailer, but it happens. It's not like he could count on anyone else to get it done. And that was actually a pretty nice alley-oop he threw for Mahinmi.
The reaction to the non-call on that play was interesting. I agree with all the commentators that it was a pretty obvious foul and a blown call. That said, I'm sure that had they called it there'd be a contingent of people screaming that that the refs are supposed to swallow their whistles and ensure that it's the players and not the officials who control the outcome. (That's assuming, of course, that the foul is called Mahinmi makes the free throws and Indy goes on to win. IIRC, they'd still be down a point even if he made both free throws.)

I think the whole 'refs shouldnt call a foul at the end of the game' is stupid.

 

If you don't want refs to "control" the outcome (they arent controlling shit with one call, the game has been going on for 40+ minutes, and a call in the first means the same as a call in the fourth), then you shouldnt let the other team get so close that a call would matter.

Oh, I totally agree. But it's a persistent refrain.

The obvious exception would be technicals (or ejections in baseball) where the offending behavior is borderline. The refs obviously have to maintain control and enforce standards, but I think that in crunchtime officials should be extra mindful that they're imposing those sorts of non-play penalties for truly disruptive or over-the-line conduct and not just protecting their own egos.

Well, and soccer. But soccer officials should just fuck off generally.

non call on Manhimi was clearly a foul no doubt and should have been called
still his decision to throw that pass instead of taking the shot is questionable

but most importantly, his offense on the drive was really uncalled, before i saw that i thought that's gonna be easy 2+1 for him, he was in great position there was no need to do such blatant push off on Derozan. Second was when he lost the ball out of bounds in critical moment. both TOs came in critcal moment and were hardly forced by defense.

Fuck the Spurs!

(But not really. Such a great likeable team.)
