I'd like to see a referee get fired though. Then they might actually fear for their job if they decide to hold their whistle or forget to call a foul when DeMar clearly gets hacked.

Ideally though they'd actually replay this one. They've done it in baseball after the "pine tar" incident and all they'd have to do here is get them together and have Bargs shoot two with 2.4 on the clock. Miss both and we lose, make both and we win, make one and we play super special overtime.
There is no chance of that happening. I could see them replaying the entire game (also not very likely), but to allow a fresh Andrea shoot two free throws would be completely unreasonable as all faucets of performance are naturally affected by fatigue. Bobcats will never agree to that.

All they need to do is use this precedent to make sure the refs know that "missing" calls against Raps has consequences, and not pretty ones either.
