You guys talk about LA flopping, but I’d say overall the calls in this game were very much in favor of Denver.
Davis getting 2 points waived off as a “ball over the cylinder” when it was not.
Porter using Reaves as a stepladder, not getting a charge but Reaves called for a block.
Murray taking 3 steps on a hand-off from Jokic and hitting a 3. And he takes 3 steps all the time on those handoffs.
Jokic doing his chicken wing push-offs - ignored by the refs.
Jokic parked in the paint for 7 seconds on both ends of the floor - ignored by the refs.
And no, I’m not a Lakers fan.
Refs weren’t good last night but it was on both sides. There was a deflection in the first half that was clearly off LeBron that they gave to LA.
The Reaves play, he was moving and the refs are going to call that a block. It was bang-bang but I didn’t hate that call.
Jokic does play a lot of bully ball and initiates contact.
I’m not a fan of the rip-through move. DLo and Schroeder do it A LOT. But defenders have to be smart and not reach because offensive players will sell the contact.
Did you have an issue with the flagrant on DLo but the non flagrant on Brown when he hit Rui in the head? Officiating wasn’t great like you said but LA attempted 8 more ft’s than Denver, with 6 coming at the end when Jamal kept getting fouled.
