I'm not going to ***** about the lousy refereeing in any of the games, but the fact that the NBA put this as one of their top plays of the night without recognizing the foul is just disappointing.
It's easy to see in the first replay that Rose doesn't block any of the ball, but rather slaps his hand into Roy's. Also, from the looks of it, Noah was holding onto him and/or pulling him down. This obviously should have been a foul call and the fact that it wasn't just goes to show that either (a) the refs suck/can't see/other excuse, or (b) the NBA is continuously rigged to raise up the top team(s) and/or bring down the Pacers (or just the 8th seed).
Cmon, NBA. Have a little integrity. You can't give turn a bad no-call into a highlight for the sake of buffering the probable MVP. This bulls*** makes me not want to watch pro basketball anymore if the Pacers are just going to keep getting unfairly pushed around and cheated out of very important (or not) games. We don't deserve this kind of unfair treatment.
Can I get an amen?
