    The NBA: Where Sh!tty Officiating Happens to Everyone


    Zach Lowe ‏@ZachLowe_NBA

    1) I hate moving screens and wish refs would call them more consistently. 2) That Collison screen was especially obvious/NFL-like.
    Larry Coon Larry Coon ‏@LarryCoon

    Yep, not well officiated. RT @MeMattP Refs doing their best to ruin this game
    Denver vs. OKC.

    Oh my goodness ... this is getting ridiculous.
    Someone start a Petition at Change.org and make them fix this BS.

    except Amir admitted to touching the ball on that play so........
    Which I found very frustrating, because judging by the replay, it was likely going to be Raptors ball. God damn Amir!

    i think the bigger blown call was that tip ball that was apparently out on us. ed touches it, noah loses a handle but clearly tries to pass to the open boozer and threw it 5 rows deep. i guess ed has a super poke that can make the ball go 50 feet.

    We Canadians really need to stop being polite to the American refs.

    So do we getanother apology for last night? Of course Calderon went full retard on the inbound, but that was a clear foul.

    Why do they even have video replay?

    Both apologies were for game-deciding calls, no? That does stink like shit. The Raptors would be in ninth place in the East if not for these two oopsi-daisies. That's not very professional. The league should have to compensate teams for demonstrably blown game-deciding calls, like more balls in the lottery or something of value.
    actually this is not necessarily true. Raptors were down by 1 on each erroneous call, which doesn't mean the Raptors would have won each game if not for the call. The Raps would have received foul shots, but that doesn't mean all would have been hit.

    The Raps may have won both games, or won one of two, or sent both games into over time and won or loss, or straight out lossed both.

    There is no question that if Lebron was driving on that play the refs would have not only made the call, they would have helped him up, shined his shoes and bought him dinner

    One of the main reasons why it's so tough for us is because the refs can use players like Amir to make ridiculous calls and no one cares

    The NBA is a fucking joke now. David Stern and his marketing team - have allocated certain teams as perennial patsy's.

    6-7 block/charge calls a game can change the outcome of 95% of the games.

    "favored" teams get scheduling advantages - picking up tough teams after back to back or on tail end of 3/4nights.

    The league is 'fixed' and if you cry foul like Greg Pop did you get draconian $250,000 fine.

    David Stern = Vince McMahon

    Make that 3 games.. I know the raps shouldn't of given up a lead doesn't mean you can push a guy outta bounds and not get called for it..

    realistically we won't make the playoffs by 5 games or so, and some how we'll end up with the 1st pick, but of course it's a soft draft so we won't even care.

    They should apologize for the crazy calls and missed calls against the Nets also. It's getting hard to watch games now, know anytime we have a lead going into final half or so, calls are going to be racked up. Crazy!
