You know, I really don't understand the whole "we played like crap so we deserve to lose" argument. Yes, we did play bad in the first half I'll agree with that. However, if the team buckles down and really makes and effort to come back in the second, then that shouldn't be played down because we were lackluster in the first. We had a real shot at a W, only for it to be taken away by another boneheaded ref. The Raps worked hard to come back and make the game competitive and Michael Smith fucked them. I really hope that with Adam Silver being there, he finally sees first hand how fucked up the reffing situation is in the NBA.

The mindset of "oh we would have lost anyways, but were in the game, so who cares the refs made the worst call in the history of the NBA" is not acceptable for the perception us fans.

We need the organization to stand up for their team.
Totally agree.

I remember this happening 3-4 years ago when Steph Curry stayed in the game with 6 fouls.

Outside of how pathetically worn down the Lakers roster is, I don't see why people are making such a big deal of this. This is a pretty reasonable approach for an otherwise extremely rare situation. Like give me a break, they're not going to make them play 4 on 5.

I don't understand how that is an offensive foul.. Like Leo said if your going to stick out your leg it would be one leg not two, Lowry had to heave up a shot to get it over a jumping 6'5 Maclemore.. his legs naturally went forward

lol.. Paul George got fouled by the air

Angry at last night's officiating?

If you use Twitter, tweet #SacTOScrewjob. Some guys at RealGm are trying to get this trending to get league attention.

As a Raptor fan, it's a defensive foul and 1. Taking off my Raptors hat; I would say a no-call, Lowry put his feet out into the space in front of him a little bit to draw contact. McLemore didn't jump at him, he was jumping in front of him.

Nobody played defense.

Derozan was horrible on defense, Ross was horrible, Patterson was horrible. Vazques starts off his game by giving Jimmer a wide open three. A whole bunch of lazyness in that first half.

Everybody had a few good possessions on the defensive end, but never at the same time. NObody had there head in it for the full game.

I actually thought his might be us after the first half and we had 8 players with 3 fouls.

The number of calls and whistles against us were embarrassingly one sided. The type of fouls called were pathetic. The call on Lowry should be reviewed by the league. Keep it up NBA... why would I ever watch a sport that makes me that angry.

Grantland has a link to the Lowry foul about half way down this article under the headline "This is the worst call in history".

None of us do. It was probably one of, if not the worst call ever in NBA history.

That call was total bullshit. Even if they say Lowry kickout with his legs (which he didnt do any more than one has to when launching such a prayer shot in backward motion) the contact was first on his arms, not on the legs. There is no way that could even be a no-call. Its just bullshit that refs dont get penalized for those kinds of calls.

Also the tech was stupid. A bad foul call on him and all he does is run away from it with out saying anything. Yes he is showing emotion, but thats much better way to show it than starting to yell at refs. Had there been some big name star who would have just started complaining to refs, there wouldnt have been a tech. That just set an example to players that its better to start barking at refs than show frustration by going away from them.

That being said, the Raps were horrible for over 40 minutes in this game. You cant complain about the 50-25 free throw disadvantage as they really didnt deserve any better. Horrible performance. And I don't understand why Casey doesnt even try to bring some energy into the team by for example putting TH against Cousins. You know Cousins is a hot-head so why not try to put his mind out of the game by putting a notoriously annoying Psycho-T on him.

Pretty much everyone was a disapointment in this game. Novak might be only one who at least did his job. Just horrible. Even if we can claw ourselves into some of these games, our first halves are so poor, we are going to lose some winnable games if something doesnt change.

Best I can come up with is refs review previous games to see what they should look out for with players, and Lowry was penalized for doing a leg kick earlier in the season, so someone assumed it was this time based on a bad angle and prejudice.

The tech afterwards was just petty and evil by the ref. Lowry had fouled out anyway and left without fighting/arguing.

Also I dont understand why the bucket was not counted. The ball had left his hands and it was not like he somehow prevented the defensive play in that (even if you think he kicked out). I mean if at that moment anyone else from Raps takes a foul, the bucket counts as the ball was in the air already.

Isnt it a foul after the shot?
