It was a game with too much embarrassment left to call it a great match.
The Dallas Mavericks won the 2022-2023 NBA regular season LA Lakers 115-111 at the Los Angeles Crypto.com Arena on the 13th (hereinafter Korean time).
After a bloody battle that went to the second overtime, Dallas emerged as the winner. It was decisive that Luka Doncic (35 points, 14 rebounds, 13 assists) saved the team in every crisis by showing off his monstrous concentration.
However, apart from the result, too much has been said about the judgment. The most controversial scene was Troy Brown Jr.’s 3-point attempt at the end of the 4th quarter. After Brown Jr. threw a shot, there was a collision with Tim Hardaway Jr., who came out of the shot contest.
The ball left his hands and his hands collided with each other, and Hardaway Jr.’s landing after a jump was not without contact. After the game, LeBron James expressed deep regret, saying, “Troy Brown Jr.’s last-minute shot attempt in the fourth quarter was unconditionally a foul.” Coach Davin Hamm also said, “I saw it as an obvious foul.” 스포츠토토
A scene that caused a lot of controversy even among fans. In a two-minute report released after the game, it was announced that the referee had made an accurate decision about Brown Jr.’s shot attempt process.
However, even excluding the last Lakers attack scene in the fourth quarter, there were too many misjudgments in other scenes. In the 2-minute report where only the situation of the winner was selected, there were as many as 7 misjudgments that were revealed.
First of all, Dallas was not recognized for four of the opponent’s fouls. LeBron also committed two offensive fouls within 10 seconds of the second overtime period, but the referee did not blow his whistle.
Even at the end of the first overtime, which ended with Christian Wood’s block shot, there was a foul during Lebron’s rim attack. There was also a replay of Wood’s apparent punching of LeBron’s arm on the broadcast screen, but the referee did not call a foul. According to the two-minute report, the foul Doncic committed on Wenjell Gabriel was not called.
In addition, a misjudgment about the jump ball situation was recorded in the 2-minute report. It was a game in which too many wrong judgments were poured out to be called ‘a misjudgment is also part of the game’. Attention is drawn to the third match of the season between the two teams, which will be held on February 27 at home in Dallas.
