I want to highlight this bullshit because this is ridiculous.

We are in the 4th quarter.

Magic Free Throws - 0
Nuggets Free Throws - 22

It's a 2 point game right now.

And we just got our first free throws of the game as I post this with 9 mins left in the 4th

Free throw update

Nuggets free throws - 30
Magic free throws - 2

I really hope the NBA investigates this because they just aren't calling fouls remotely the same for both teams. Like the Nuggets should have more free throws but not this wide a margin. They are calling absolutely everything on the Magic and then absolutely nothing the other way. If the Nuggets 30 are how fouls are being called then the Magic should probably have like 14-16. If they called the Nuggets the same way as the Magic they would have like maybe half the free throws they have

Prime example of this foul calling bullshit with this quick 3 play exchange in OT

Millsap gets minimal contact and he initiated it - Gets free throws
Gordon gets tons of contact at other end when shooting - Nothing called
Millsap commits offensive foul under basket to create space and score - Foul not called, bucket stands

Result 3 point swing

Also literally just happened. Fournier given a technical foul and ejected for barely talking back to official when fouling out. Jamal Murray went ballistic at officials with 2 seconds left and the game tied at the end of the 4th and no technical called.

Are you fucking kidding me?

The Nuggets get sent to the free throw line for a non-shooting foul with 20 seconds left in overtime.

The problem with this? They weren't at the fucking bonus.

The officials absolutely changed the result of that game. The TV station are ripping into the officials now and pulling up replays of all the bad calls they made.

They just pulled up a replay of Murray blatantly stepping out of bounds on a game changing play and it wasn't called. And now they are showing the replay on the Fournier foul out / ejection to highlight how it shouldn't have even been a foul.

The NBA seriously seriously need to review this match. The shit that went down in this match is the type of stuff that happens when matches are rigged.

It was really bad. Even if we just ignore the massive FT disparity (37-8) there's a few plays that really stand out that are game changing in the order they happened.

* Late in the 4th (under 2 minutes left so reviewable) there is an out of bounds play that goes Nuggets way, replays show it was the wrong call. Aaron Gordon literally begs officials to review, they don't. Shortly after at the other end an out of bounds play goes the Magic's way, get reviewed and reversed. Right call but just jarring because of what happened before that at the other end.

* Murray blows up at the refs with 9 seconds left and doesn't get a technical. Magic got 3 technicals for far less including an ejection.

* Nuggets get sent to the line for a non shooting foul in OT when not at the limit. The Magic point out that Nuggets are not at the limit. Refs send them to the line anyway.

* 20 seconds left in OT. 3 point game. Murray steps out of bounds right in front of the official. Twice. Doesn't get called, he then gets fouled and Nuggets go up 5 and game is over.

It was an OT game so all the above are absolutely game changing. And again that's if you completely ignore the massive FT disparity between the 2 teams. The Magic actually changed their tactics because of it. They stopped driving to the basket because nothing was getting called (They had 0 FT's in the first 39 mins of play) and resorted to shooting ridiculous amounts of 3's instead (49)

Lol. I knew Clifford mouthed off at the officials after the final whistle but I didn't realize what he said. Apparently it was this

That was the worst officiated game Ive ever been part of. Ever! Ever! Steve Clifford just shouted at the refs after the final buzzer


This was followed by him refusing to blame officials whatsoever in the press conference after the game saying he would have to review game film first. Said we lost due to a failure to defend the high pick and roll, wouldn't blame officials whatsoever.

From a media member

The amount of times in this game that I wanted to tweet something about the refs, but then had to pause because the refs did something else to top it has been incredible.

The Magic played more than good enough to win, and the refs stole this from Orlando. Horrible officiating.

This game doesnt need a final 2-minute review, it needs a 48-minute review plus overtime. Complete bullshit from start to finish.


Continues

It is absurd. There wasnt one team playing more aggressive than the other. It was insane that the free throw disparity was 37 to 8.

There was three technical fouls called on Vucevic and Fournier, and one in the final two minutes of overtime when the game was on the line.

Jamal Murray berated the refs at the end of the 4th, chasing down the refs, had to be held back by his teammate. No technical.

There was was blatant fouls from Plumlee and Millsap that were completely overlooked, or even worse called AGAINST the Magic.

Millsap elbowed Gordon in the chest, and a foul was called on Gordon. Plumlee hooked Gordon, and a foul was called on Gordon. Makes no sense.

The disparity just makes you wonder what the hell they refs were doing.

Fox Sports just replayed the foul on Murray that shouldnt have been free throws, as Orlando wasnt over the limit, but to make it worse Murray stepped out of bounds TWICE. Right in front of the official.

So I looked up the NBA 2 minute reports

Assuming last night goes the way I think when they publish the 2 minute report, it will have been the 4th time in only 3 weeks that Orlando Magic have been disadvantaged in the 2 minute report. At least 3 of those times it would have changed the result. The 4th was debatable (6 point match but tied at point of incorrect call and that 6 point was built up via intentional fouls to force free throws)

So I brought the Magic/Nuggets game to the attention of my NBA group on FB and everyone who looked into it was outraged about the terrible officiating and I'm pretty sure we all hate the Nuggets now SE.

I think the worst part was all the Nuggets fans arguing with me that it was called fairly and that the Nuggets were amazing to win despite the Magic scoring 20 3's.

It's just so frustrating. Off just the last 3 weeks the Magic should be 15-11 or 16-10 if the refs had called the game correctly in the final 2 minutes. Hell even if they called the game incorrectly but were even about it woke be fine. But every time I open a 2 minute report it seems it favors the Magic's opponents and usually in a 1-3 point game.

I was having an argument with real live people earlier who said that the whole reason the Thunder were losing last night is because Russ was stat padding and they only came back in the 4th because he'd already had his triple double and he didn't shoot at all.

Just unbelievable.

Russ just embodies literally everything I enjoy in a pro athlete. Flash, flair, explosiveness. An unmatchable desire to win, and an unbeatable engine.

That and he's fucking HILARIOUS. He was playing one on one with Bron. Jr during all-star weekend last year and he spun off him, made a bucket and was shouting AND ONNE! as it went in. He literally can't not take the game seriously.

honestly before last year this was the case.

Now though I have kind of become a full on Thunder fan. If Russ were to leave all bets would be off but he's signed for the rest of his life basically.

On the flip side, I feel great as a Mavs fan! I came into the season hoping to see development in the young guys and to get the 8th seed in the West or a low lottery pick so it wouldn't be rough not owning a 1st next season.

Then, things got off to an ugly start except for Doncic, and I wondered if the pick going to the Hawks would even convey in the off-season. Now, everything looks great except DSJ dealing with injuries and inconsistency.
