Not only did the league rule Middleton should have been called for a foul on Brown, but that Giannis Antetokounmpo should have been called for an offensive foul against Semi Ojeleye on the previous possession.

NBA officiating has continued to astound me left and right with their absolute incompetence. Their constant blunders could cost us a series, smh

It sucks, but still, I give kudos to the refs and the league for admitting they screwed up. Hopefully they watch these reports regularly and learn from them. Maybe they start giving Jaylen and Semi a bit more respect after watching these replays.

Maybe we'll see some make-up calls next game.  I'm not above accepting 'em.

The admission of messing up is nice, but I just want those calls ;)

And yeah, if we get 40FTA in game 5 I won't be upset

Someone needs to file this quote away in a safe place for austerity. Hide it under your mattress, put it in amber, I don't care, lol ;D.

There were plenty of calls that went our way last game, including Tatum grabbing someone’s shirt.

I honestly missed the foul on Jaylen.  But if the NBA admits fault, I'll trust their opinion.  I agree that the game appeared to be otherwise called pretty fairly.  Baynes was very physical too.  Though Maker was also jumping on him throughout the game.  If he wasn't so old I'd have taken serious issue with that, but I assume the guy can barely hold himself up at this point.

Officiating has been horrible this year. Harden travels 90% of the time he shoots, Gortat's moving picks show better lateral movement than Nate Solder and Philly-Miami is more physical than Wrestlemania

Harden, Giannis, Lebron, travel every single time they make a move.

Not to mention the blatant push-offs.

They also get away with so much remonstrating and crying to the refs. A rookie would get tech'd instantly

I mean, they've done this (admit screwups) several times this year...until they do something about it I'm going to be angry about their bad reffing!

I don't think the refs are admitting any mistakes; this is the league making this statement, right? At any rate, these reports are dumb and useless, because nothing meaningful comes out of them. The refs get to keep on being biased and wrong.

Tatum committed a foul on the last 2 minutes that wasn't called. It is in the report and in the article. That part was just left out of the thread

They have always been bad, and instant replay makes it even more noticeable time and time again.
