For those saying Manu Ginobli

For those saying Manu Ginobli took three HUGE steps, you might want to watch the instant replay.

It looks more like he took one small step and then two huge steps. But it's really hard to see if it's a travel. It's all about when he cuffed the ball. I really feel like he took that first right step as he was cuffing the ball. I did think it was a foul. Maybe Ginobli wasn't given the benefit of the doubt because he'd been turning it over all game.

I thought the foul on Chris Bosh against Danny Green should've been called. He got all ball, BUT he body checked Green. Just look at the shot at the end of regulation by Ray Allen. Had Tony Parker made contact with his body and not given him space to land, that would've been called.

I'm not blaming the refs, but that last no call was very bad IMO.

Referees?

I referee so I know what I'm talking about. Bosch slammed into Danny Green on the last play of the game. It was so obvious I cannot believe the refs missed that one The question is, would Green have made all 3 foul shots under intense pressure.

As for Gnoboli, Allen definitely fouled him, but it wasn't as blatant as the Bosch foul so I'll give the refs a pass on that one.

More importantly, Popovich made two huge blunders in the last 30 seconds which cost SA the game. On both occasions he took out his only big man, Tim Duncan, and the same thing happened each time. Miami missed their first shot but got the offense rebound and hit a 3 pointer on the 2nd attempt. If SA captured either one of those rebounds the game and the series would have been over.

I've watched the replay of

I've watched the replay of the Ginobili-Allen play close to 30 times now and I still don't see a foul. Ray Allen had his hand on the ball that entire drive.

?

Clearly you didn't see the game! Manu did get fouled but he traveled with that bully step he does. The refs clearly wore black and gray for the majority of the game.

Did You Read What I Said?

gmforhire, I wouldn't hire you because you can't read. I clearly said Manu was fouled but it wasn't as blatant as the Chris Bosch foul on Green which was a body slam on a jump shot. I still find it incredible that obvious foul wasn't called.

As for Gnoboli traveling, he and LeBron travel all game long and it's never called.

(No subject)

Good block up top, but that's a lot of body on a shooter to not be called. Bosh lunged at him and was sort of out of control.

I don't know how you swallow the whistle on that.

Still think the Spurs blew this game though. Excited for a game seven.

Did someone go on a negging

Did someone go on a negging spree on anyone who commented in this thread? I noticed a lot of people with a -1 who made fairly good points.

Ok I see that Chris Bosh foul

Ok I see that Chris Bosh foul now. He blocked the shot, but hit him with his body pretty good. The Spurs had this game in the palm of their hand. It;s unlikely a older team that played that hard going into over time can do it again. They effed up big time.
