But Anthony Davis didn’t get called for a foul, and the Warriors had to win in overtime rather than sending Curry to the line in regulation.
Why no whistle?
Marcus Thompson of Bay Area News Group:
This is ridiculous.
If it’s a foul, it’s a foul. If it’s not, it’s not.
Whether the shot goes in has nothing do with it.
Unfortunately, it’s also unsurprising. Referees do this all the time.
The NBA has yet to release its two-minute report for this game, but here are two predictions:
1. It will say a foul should have been called.
2. It won’t address the underlying reason no foul was called.
Hopefully, the NBA emphasizes these calls in the offseason. The policy of referees calling a foul only if a shot misses should end as soon as possible.
