What I believe he was saying, regarding Denver, was that if it had happened in that Denver game they would have made the same call. However, in last nights game they had decided it wasn't a foul, meaning if it had happened on the other end they wouldn't have called it.
The example of the Granger/Lebron fouls from several seasons ago displays this principle of consistency quite well. Because they called it on one end, they had to call it on the other. What Boom was saying was that last nights crew didn't care what the Denver crew called. Therefore, it's really up to the crew that night to determine how they will make calls (Blocks/charges, going straight up etc).
While I think they could have/should have made the call last night, the point is that each crew interprets the rules differently.
Still so bitter about blowing this game today. Damn it.
