So, the backcourt violation isn't a thing when ball in air goes the other way? What a stupid rule.

That call on Hayward is laughable. Harden literally couldn't play in the league if that was an offensive foul

NBA refs who blow calls and then call techs should be suspended by rule. Like, if you get a call reversed (even next day review when league does it) and you Td the guy up, you sit for a week.

I know ref union would never go for it. But should be!

That's like a 5-point swing, and they happen ALL THE TIME in this league. When people parrot the tired "NBA is the best-run league" nonsense, I just shake my head wistfully.

That's a foul huh? Two minutes after the call on Hayward?

Okay refs.

That Hayward charge might turn out to be a game-changing call.

Maybe Brad should try to protect his players for once instead of the nice guy routine. We never get the benefit

Smart just fouled out with 3:46 left in the third quarter. Who was keeping track of his fouls?

Not this announcer who said immediately prior to his sixth foul that nobody on the Celtics had more than Tatum's three fouls lol

Brad runs under the theory that you let players play with fouls because it’s better to risk losing some minutes late versus guaranteeing sacrificing a lot of minutes early. The logic of that position is virtually unassailable.

Pretty cool to fight back and have it go for naught because the refs can’t stop fucking this team over.

I can't remember the last time I saw a player foul out in the third quarter.
