Bulls-Heat (Game 3): So many calls, and so little time to capture them all

May 23rd, 2011 5 comments

There were so many calls and no-calls to review from last night’s Chicago-Miami game, it took longer than normal to go through them all. For example, we counted at least 10 travels that were missed by the refs (due to frequent violators like Derrick Rose, LeBron James and Dwayne Wade playing in the same game), but because it takes so much time to edit and include them in a video, we might create a separate video later that just focuses on those travels.

In the meantime, here are most of the non-traveling related calls and no-calls we found that were significant, or interesting.

In this video, you’ll see the following:

  • Ref Ron Garretson correctly calls back an inbounds pass from Dwyane Wade since the ball accidentally grazed Garretson’s fingers resulting in a turnover for the Heat. But Garretson should have called a foul on Taj Gibson for extending part of his body over the boundary line, which isn’t allowed according to the rulebook.
  • Ref Ron Garretson calls a ticky-tack foul on Chicago’s Carlos Boozer in defending Miami’s Chris Bosh.
  • Chicago’s Keith Bogans is fouled by Miami’s Dwayne Wade as Bogans goes into his shooting motion (which is the correct call), but Bogans arguably traveled, which was missed.
  • Chicago’s Carlos Boozer uses elbow to clear out space on Miami’s Udonis Haslem, but the refs didn’t call an offensive foul on Boozer.
  • Ref Steve Javie calls a foul on Chicago’s Ronnie Brewer when it looked like Miami’s Mario Chalmers was just jumping into the air to avoid colliding into his teammate, or was flopping. Wrong call by Javie.
  • Chicago’s Carlos Boozer seems to set an illegal screen on Miami’s Mike Miller, but no foul was called.
  • Miami’s Ronnie Brewer will fall hard on Miami’s Mike Miller in the scramble for a loose ball, but no foul is called.
  • Ref Mike Callahan will wrongly call an offensive charge against Chicago’s Carlos Boozer when he drives to the basket and contact is made with Miami’s Udonis Haslem, even though one of Haslem’s feet was in the restricted area.
  • Ref Ron Garretson calls a foul on Chicago’s Kyle Korver when it looks like Korver got “all ball” on a block of Miami’s LeBron James.
  • The refs will miss a shooting foul from Miami’s Mike Bibby on Chicago’s Joakim Noah.
  • Ref Steve Javie will correctly call an offensive foul on Chicago’s Luol Deng, but with the help of a sell/flop from Miami’s LeBron James.
  • Ref Ron Garretson will incorrectly call a moving screen on Chicago’s Joakim Noah when it appeared he was established before Miami’s Mike Bibby ran into him.
  • Ref Ron Garretson will call a ticky-tack foul on Miami’s Chris Bosh involving Chicago’s Carlos Boozer.

Thunder-Grizzlies (Game 6): Too many ticky-tack calls makes game almost unwatchable

May 14th, 2011 6 comments

Last night’s Oklahoma City-Memphis game was painful to watch from an officiating perspective, with lots of ticky-tack fouls called against both teams. Even the announcers mentioned how the game had no flow because of it.

If you’re a Grizzlies fan, fortunately you can say your team won without the benefit of bad ref calls against Oklahoma City. We documented most of the bad calls in the video below (with a breakdown in text below the video), and the bad calls seemed to go both ways, with ref Marc Davis being the worst ref of the bunch.

Here’s a breakdown of the calls/no-calls in the video, including some tough good calls where you have to give the refs credit.

  • An unnecessary charging call by ref Scott Foster (#48) on Kevin Durant
  • A good charging call from ref Scott Foster against Marc Gasol
  • A flop by Thabo Sefolosha. Good no-call by Scott Foster
  • A bad call from ref Marc Davis (#8) against James Harden that should have been let go
  • A good no-call from ref Ron Garretson (#10) when many refs would have called a charge or block
  • A bad charging call from Ron Garretson on Tony Allen. Should have been a block on James Harden
  • A ticky-tack foul from ref Marc Davis on Nick Collison involving a flop by Zach Randolph
  • A ticky-tack foul from ref Marc Davis on Shane Battier involving Russell Westbrook
  • A ticky-tack foul from ref Marc Davis on Kendrick Perkins involving Zach Randolph
  • A ticky-tack foul from ref Scott Foster on O.J. Mayo involving Russell Westbrook
  • A bad shooting foul from ref Scott Foster on Tony Allen involving Kevin Durant
  • A good call from ref Marc Davis on Darrell Arthur for charging into Nick Collison
  • A good call from ref Scott Foster on Zach Randolph for fouling Kendrick Perkins

Celtics-Heat (Game 5): A couple of tricky travel calls/no-calls you don’t see too often

May 12th, 2011 3 comments

Watching the Boston-Miami game Wednesday night, surprisingly it seemed to be well-officiated in the second half (unless you saw something egregious, which you can do here in the RefCalls.com/forums).

But there was one call and one no-call involving travels you don’t normally see. We typically don’t cover that many travels because there are so many of them that don’t get called, unless the travel had a big impact on determining the outcome of a game, or its just very unusual. Here’s a couple of them that fit more in the latter category.
