fallout from Hardcore No Invitation The final second of Saturday’s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics showed no sign of ending, with the NBA Referees’ Twitter account acknowledging the error on Sunday.
Like everyone else, referees make mistakes. Union Books. “We made one at the end of last night’s game and it hurts us.
“This play will go a long way and cause sleepless nights as we strive to be the best umpires we can be.”
Lakers star LeBron James He was furious after the umpires missed an apparent foul by Jason Tatum when he went for the winning layup, as the Celtics eventually came out on top in overtime.
To make matters worse, Los Angeles guard Patrick Beverley received a technical foul after he took out a photographer’s camera to show officials a picture of the missed call.
Later on Saturday, Lakers guard Dennis Schroeder took to Instagram to call on the referees to “start fining their mistakes.”
“They also present technical fouls to people who react to their own,” the German goalkeeper wrote in an expired Instagram story accompanied by a photo of the error.
The replay center must also use the replay to properly receive calls on a play of special interest such as an OBVIOUS foul on LeBron at the end of the game.
“This has to stop. We need every win we get in this league to reach our goals! Losing 3-5 games this season due to referee errors is really difficult.”
Teams can use their coach’s challenge to review in-game incidents if they feel the wrong decision was made, but this was not possible in this case because the referee had not actually made a call.
Still distraught over the incident on Sunday, James posted a video to his Instagram story with the caption, “Good block Jayson Tatum,” referring to the Celtics star along with a series of sarcastic emojis.
