NBA Officials Missed the Call in Denver-Indiana Game


Well thanks NBA for telling the Indiana Pacers that yes there was a foul on Paul George by Andre Iguodala, but what does it matter now? That game was two nights ago, and the Pacers end up losing on what was a questionable foul call at the basket. I really don’t understand the point of this, other than it shows that the NBA looked at it, and admitted a mistake. But it’s not going to give the Pacers two free throws, so what’s the purpose?

You can look at this as well the game should have never came to foul calls either way. I understand that point, and I’ve never been that guy saying oh the ref cost us the game. You want to put yourself in that position to score. I look at Paul George in that final possession for the Pacers, and I thought he wanted too long to make his move anyways. I understand waiting for just a small bit of time, but you have to be ready for a miss as well, and want some shot at tipping it in. With the final possession  the Pacers never got anything off, and do we really want a missed call to be the blame for that?

In all sports, it’s about getting the call right. But where’s the getting the call right in a matter of days later?  Is there an asterisk on this game? It’s just worthless to me for the NBA to even come out with this at this point.  Maybe that night you can come out and say oh there was a missed call that could have put the Pacers in a position to win the game.  Even the next day early morning.  But two days later, I don’t get it.  Can someone explain this to me?
