Humour in the NBA … referee style

One of the funniest video clips yet produced on the internet …

Shame on anyone who suggests that the officials in this League actually call the game according to “The Rules”. :-)

 

TRICK or Treat – Game Review: Raptors vs Warriors [Oct 31]

Saturday, November 1st, 2008

FINAL SCORE: Raptors 112, Warriors 108 [OT]
Game Info

—————————

TREAT[S]

* Chris Bosh’s play, on offense, coming down the stretch [in the 4th Q & OT] 
* Exploited the Andrea Bargnani vs Brandon Wright mis-match
* Solid efforts by Jose Calderon & Anthony Parker who held their own in some very tough match-ups, notably, vs Stephen Jackson & Corey Maggette

TRICK[S]
* Lost the Rebounding Differential by a wide margin for the 2nd consecutive game [TOR 36, Gsw 46]

KEY POSSESSION OUTCOME[S]
* 00:29.3 of the 4th Q, TOR 92, Gsw 93 … when CB4 was isolated on the right wing vs Andre Biedrins and drove baseline for a dunk, while Al Harrington failed to execute his defensive assignment properly … which was to double-team Bosh, as Biedrins forced him to his right-hand drive, in order to create a Pass-out situation and a designated defensive rotation, that never happened, as a result … TOR 94, Gsw 93 
* 00:14.5 of the 4th Q, TOR 94, Gsw 96 … when CB4 was isolated vs Stephen Jackson at the FT Line, was able to drive & spin into the lane, get fouled and made 2 clutch FT’s … TOR 96, Gsw 96
* 00:2.5 of the 4th Q, with the score tied … when Corey Maggette was isolated at the Top Of The Key, drove into the lane and was tripped by Jamario Moon, with no foul called & the resulting Turnover … TOR 96, Gsw 96

—————————

Despite solid contributions from Bosh, Bargnani, Calderon & Parker, and playing just well enough, as a group, to win their home opener … moving them to 2-0 … if the Raptors continue to put together deficient Rebounding Differentials, like this:

1st Q – TOR 21 Pts, 6 Rebs; Gsw 17 Pts, 10 Rebs – TOR/+4, -4
2nd Q – TOR 30 Pts, 8 Rebs; Gsw 33 Pts, 13 Rebs – TOR/-3, -5
3rd Q – TOR 26 Pts, 11 Rebs; Gsw 25 Pts, 8 Rebs – TOR/+1, +3
4th Q + OT – TOR 35 Pts, 12 Rebs; Gsw 35 Pts, 16 Rebs – TOR/0, -4

they are not going to be an Elite Level Team in the Eastern Conference this season, considering that the Warriors played without their starting PG, Monta Ellis, and are probably going to finish in the lower third of the Western Conference.
