In a fair game,
the Mavericks win this egregious refereeing failure of a game. Of course its generally never a fair game against Lebron or against the Lakers when it comes to officiating.
Especially as they called that second foul on Luka early in the second qtr as he was starting to dominate the flow of the game. It’s as if the refs wanted to keep it close from getting out of hand. But, that was a bogus call. I’ve seen more (please look above) not called.
Also, RC had a hand in this loss, especially late. He swallowed calling that timeout when Luka got hurt for a potential challenge call, which he ultimately never got to use. Still kinda steamed this morning. Despite all that, we’re gonna be good when we finally click. And, if KP only showed up a bit more. Seemed to play timid from my view point, like he was afraid his shot would get blocked
I think if a coach doesn't lose the challenge the team should not lose the ability to challenge again. Why catch a ref having a bad game, correct them once and then say "ok, you can screw up the rest of the game now". https://i.redd.it/sjfulbtxa7w31.jpg
