76centers lose to the Mavs then to ATL.
Yeah got a real contender there.
I love Pop.. simply the best.
29% chance of top 3 seed. That sucks. Have to win at least 3 of 4 for a 57% chance. I dont think it happens.
Just win all 4, problem solved.
So...anyone wanna help explain this call? @dviss1?
That's really bad.
Not that I think it's a good call, but I think what the referee saw was that as the ball-handler was reaching the half-court line, it appeared like he subtly changed his arm angle as though he was going to pass, but continued to dribble instead, and the referee called him for traveling/palming.
Eh, what do you know? You're not even allowed to talk to refs!
Blazers need to continue to win as Utah keeps winning due to their easy schedule
There was never a time that he even appeared to carry the ball.
That call was a travesty.
The real caption of this should be, “after acting immature and needing attention to start the game. Pop also had to make the end of the game about him too.”
Please tell me you typed that in your best Bill Walton voice?!
Sadly, my best Bill Walton voice is, in and of itself, a travesty
I agree. But unless you think the referee was on the take for specifically that call, he clearly saw something (in his mind) that made him blow the whistle, and that's my guess as to what it was. I wasn't defending the call.
If he thought he palmed the ball for that he made the incorrect travel signal then.
Not necessarily. Sometimes it is traveling and not carrying.
But in those instances it's because the player places their hand underneath the ball while simultaneously taking more than two steps.
That said, that certainly didn't occur on that play.
I don't know what the Hell he saw TBH.
It's like a burning lake of pure evil......
Yes... I've been called for this travel.
