More Cowbell Posted January 17 Share Posted January 17 I don't know how many here watch the Knicks but the refs absolutely robbed the Knicks of a win by not calling fouls. The game yesterday was entertaining and the Knicks missed foul shots that would have won the game in the last minutes but on the play where RJ dunked with .06 left to send it to OT, Barnes who was defending clearly had his hand on RJ's shoulder which made that dunk harder. The fact that RJ even elevated enough to dunk it is a testament to his determination. Then during the OT on an inbound, there was a lot of pushing and shoving and Grimes literally shoved Barnes off him before the inbounds. Barnes turns around and starts talking trash and waving his finger in Grimes direction. Barnes is barely a vet mind you, this is his second season. This went on for about 5 or 7 seconds. If this wasn't taunting, nobody ever taunted in the NBA. The cameras were also on Barnes the entire time in a close up. Barnes should have clearly been T'd up for this. Now there is really no telling if RJ makes the FT after being fouled but he made 4 pressure foul shots at the end and there is no telling the technical gets made either but the refs clearly did not want to call these game altering fouls and they were blatant. This was the worst officiated game I ever saw in any sport. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
