I know that this game was three days ago, but did any of you watch the referees in the Cavaliers vs Hawks game. Now, don’t get me wrong, being a Pacers fan, I hate both of the teams, but watching SportsCenter that night, I couldn’t help but notice all of the bad calls in the last two minutes of the fourth quarter, and all of them in overtime. As the NBA looked at the calls in the last two minutes(or four in this case), they noticed three bad calls. Three is a lot and I definitely noticed more than that. The first one was when Kyrie Irving’s arm was obviously clipped on a jumper. The second was on a play in which Irving was called for a jump ball mismatch, when Millsap’s foot was obviously out of bounds. On this play Lebron and the refferee got into a small argument. And then the last one was in overtime on another no-call on a drive by Irving. Watch all three here: http://ftw.usatoday.com/2017/04/nba-last-two-minute-report-cavaliers-hawks-blown-calls. A terrible call happened again on Lebron James’s sixth foul on a terrible call on a rebound. You also couldn’t help noticing that the referee who called that final foul was the same one who got into the fight with Lebron at the end of regulation. Watch that call: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzlgdnplX9o

This game was not the only game in the past week that had bad calls that affected the game.  But, about this game, do you think that any of these calls were correct? Comment yes or no.
