So basically if you haven't seen it, with about 5 seconds left in the 2nd quarter, Paul George hit his second free throw. Before Clark was about to inbound the ball to Nash, the clock started about a second too early. Nash sprinted down the floor and hit a 15 foot buzzer that didn't count....lights went on as the ball was still in his fingertips.


Some said they should re-do the play again, others said to just count the basket since the amount of time lost would've been enough to have the basket count, but the refs decided it was best to have the lakers inbound the ball with 1.5 seconds left from the free throw line...wtf? what kind of call is that? can anyone explain?


and how come when the same exact situation happened with lebron who hit a half court shot the refs counted it?

I think when a situation presents itself and its not clearly noted in the rule book, the refs have the power to do what they think is best.

Its should have either ended in 2 different ways. 


1. It counted pacers with the ball with 1.5 seconds left


2. Restart the 5 seconds. 


The way the refs did it leaves it open for teams to try to attempt to cheat again which this was cheating. They were cheating with the shot clock all night. Even Stu was calling them out on it.

Basket counts or redo the play...

...What the refs came up with was pretty stupid...Steve knew the clock and made the correct play and got nothing out of it....Hate to see him/us not rewarded...

The refs were idiots and the time keepers were scum bags, plain & simple...

Cuz its LBJ world = NBA cator to him.


Refs always find a way to cheat Lakers no matter what win or lose for the squad.

This has to be one of the stupidest decisions ever made by the refs in the NBA.


No basket and only 1.5 on the clock? WTF???  :smh:


How stupid is that?


You either count the basket and give the ball to the Pacers (which would be wrong imo, but still better than what they did) or put the original 5 seconds back on the clock and give the ball back to the Lakers.

Refs blowing really really obvious calls aren't nothing new vs Lakers. These two immediately come to mind

i remember in the finals...can't remember if it was '08 or '10, a key play in i believe game 2, there was an out of bounds play that they ruled in favor of the celtics (it was garnett and gasol i believe) they went to replay i thought it pretty clearly showed that garnett had touched it last, but they kept the ball w/ the celtics anyway and we lost the game...i was in shock when they didn't change the call
