I dunno, the death call was pretty extreme less than 3 minutes into the game being down only 7

Mugs is sentencing NBA players to death for being down 9-2. But god forbid someone punishes a fat worthless orca for destroying vessels.

Hey, down 7 with only 45 minutes left in an NBA game = almost insurmountable deficit.

My plan worked perfectly.  I never threatened them at all.

What a way to end a game and a series.  Congratulations to Dallas.  OMax moves on.

Terrible challenge there.  Cost OKC a time out and the ability to advance the ball to half-court.

But it was a clear foul.  Just a bad decision.  Very upsetting but OKC will be back.

Have to agree with Muggs here. It was an obvious foul. You have that time-out, you advance the ball and you have a legit chance to tie or win. You give up the time-out for a challenge that had no chance to succeed, and you almost surely lose.

Even if you think it's borderline or 50/50 you can't challenge.  The only way you challenge that one is if you're 100% sure there is no foul.  They would have had plenty of time to draw something up from half-court. 

As I side note, I'm not a fan of the challenge system and how it's administered.  My solution would be to only allow it the final 3 mins,  with the understanding that refs will miss some calls during the course of the game.  I wouldn't have a limit to the challenges under 3 mins, and if it's a successful challenge, I wouldn't take away  a time-out.

If you get the ball first, you are allowed to hit the arm  on the follow through. That happened earlier in the series. Apparently that didn't apply here, as the ball had not been released yet. We found that out when the announcers went to talk to their New York ref, but the actual ref rudely interrupted and made the call over the microphone.

It wasn't , to me, a 100% a foul until I saw the replay. But the way Tony Brothers had it in for Luka, I thought the cal would be overturned

It wasn't about hitting the ball first. Its about dislodging the ball from the shooter. If he had lost control of the ball, the subsequent contact on the arm would have been ignored. But since the ball wasn't dislodged, and was still in the act of shooting, the foul was called with the contact to the arm.

It was an obvious foul and the OKC coach should never have called for a review.

We are saying the same thing. Generraly when you block a shot, and hit the ball first. it dislodges.

Are Scoopers more impressed by Ant or SGA?  I think OKC blew this series, but mainly because of inexperience.  There were big stretches is certain games where they took bad shots and kicked the ball away.  They could also use an additional big.  P.J. Washington really was the difference in this series which I never imagined would be the case. 

SGA isn't as explosive as Edwards but has a cool, calm, and unflappabe quality to his game.  I think he's more consistent but not as good a defender.   Personally, if I was coaching last night, I would have liked to see SGA have the ball on every possession in the 4Q.  He can pretty much get to his spots at will as well as shred the doubles or what have you.  Tremendous footwork and the guy never looks rushed.

So, hero ball.   They are talented young players.   Hopefully, they can have showdowns that matter in the future.

They're both great young players. They have completely different games, so I won't compare them. I'd take them both on my team.

Wasn’t he initiating the offense pretty much every time down?
