Curry gets tossed as Pistons fall

Pistons coach Michael Curry thought it was an obvious foul.

Ditto for the rest of the Pistons.

But that's not how the officials saw it.

On a play in which there appeared to be contact, Rodney Stuckey was stymied by Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade with 1.9 seconds left Sunday causing Curry to receive the first ejection of his coaching career and the Pistons fell to the Heat, 101-96 at the Palace.


The No. 5 Heat (37-32) is three games ahead of the No. 7 Pistons in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

But the last sequence left Curry and the players shaking their heads.

"They were calling us for those same fouls all game long, riding Wade to the basket," said Tayshaun Prince, who scored 14 points, but missed several key shots down the stretch. "You can see why Coach Curry got thrown out the game because of that situation, and we felt what D-Wade did to Stuckey at the end of the game, they were calling us for those fouls on the other end over the course of the game.

"Obviously you know in late-game situations they are going to try to let us play, but I think you saw the inconsistency there when Stuck' drove on that play and got rode all the way to the basket, and that was pretty much the game right there."

The Heat's Udonis Haslem then made a jumper off an offensive rebound with 6.3 seconds left to give the Heat a 97-96 lead.

Curry called a time-out to set up a play for Stuckey.

He drove right and it appeared Wade was riding him all the way and was able to block Stuckey's shot. Wade picked up the loose ball and Curry got two technicals, which carries an automatic ejection.

"I guess the ref saw it different," said Stuckey, who returned to the lineup after missing one game with a bad cold. "I thought I went to the basket aggressively while he had 10 of his fingers on me and they didn't call the foul.

"He's an All-Star so I guess you are going to get those calls."

I am a D-Wade fan not a Miami Heat fan.

D-Wade only and if they was to give Rodney Stuckey that trash it would of been a bail out for the Pistons.

Too me plays at the end of the game gotta be a real significant foul .

The refs would of called that then it would of been really ticky tack.

I hate to name Lebron who I am also a fan of not the Cleveland Cavs but Lebron.
The game against Orlando when they called a foul when Lebron shot the three that was bailing out.

Yes the refs bail out superstar sometimes at the end even kobe got a few breaks which I must admit.

That non call on D-Wade's block was legit

Or maybe, it has to do with Wade attacking, while Piston players like Sheed camp and take outside shots.

Get off his nuts, man. It was a clear foul. If Wade was on the other side of that and Stuckey did that to him they probably whistle Stuck for a flagrant. This league is an embarrassment. :nah:

The NBA League's been favoring LeBron and Wade. It's getting really annoying.

Didnt really look that physical from that point of view. Maybe the refs saw it that way too

Well I haven't really payed attention too much to D-Whistle and the love affair between him and the referees, I kinda just stopped right after that fiasco of the NBA Finals when he beat the Mavs at the free throw line every game, especially at the end. I don't know if YouTube still has those videos & compilations, but that [expletive] was just disgusting. Yes, the Mavs also played their part in choking to some degree, but it must've been discouraging on plenty of occasion not even literally touching D-Whistle and calls being made giving him free points.
