Lakers-Mavericks (Game 3): Round-up of select calls and no-calls

May 7th, 2011 6 comments

Since the Atlanta-Chicago game was never really in question last night, we’re going to focus on the LA-Dallas game.

There were more travels called in the Laker-Mavericks game, more than usual, so you have to give the refs credit for calling it more.

However, there was one travel that wasn’t called that really exemplifies much of what we’ve written recently on how players can gain an unfair advantage by manipulating their dribble to sneak in an extra step and blow by their defender for a layup.

The refs miss it, as do most announcers. It happens so quickly at real speed, it’s very hard to detect. But the refs should get more training on detecting it. Like they say, “If it looks too good to be true, it probably isn’t.”

Mavericks-Blazers (Game 4): Questionable calls/no-calls analyzed from classic comeback game

April 24th, 2011 21 comments

Although there were some great playoff games played Saturday, the one between Portland and Dallas was incredible to watch, so we’re going to feature that one since it had some crucial ref calls and no-calls that could have had a bearing on the outcome. On Sunday we’ll feature a call or two from the Denver-Oklahoma City game.

The Indiana-Chicago game on Saturday was a close one, but surprisingly we didn’t see any controversial calls down the stretch that could have changed the outcome. Same goes for the San Antonio-Memphis game.

Rather than describe some of the Maverick-Blazer game calls through text, we’ll do it through the video below:

Mavericks-Blazers (Game 3): Three flops (“allegedly”) from one player in same game, & questionable call fouls out Chandler

April 23rd, 2011 3 comments

Except for one game, Friday’s playoff action didn’t really have any wrong calls or missed calls that would have changed the outcome because they weren’t very close games (Celtics-Knicks, Lakers-Hornets). We’ll be providing a couple of clips shortly of some fouls from the Atlanta-Orlando game that were noteworthy in a very close game, though.

In the meantime, we wanted to feature some calls and flops from the Portland-Dallas game Thursday night. Both teams will be playing again on Saturday at 5pm ET.

Three of the clips involve J.J. Barea allegedly flopping (you be the judge), and one features a loose ball foul called on Tyson Chandler that was questionable at best. It fouled him out of the game with Dallas still having a chance to make a run, down only 10 points in the 4th quarter with plenty of time still left to play.
