In watching every Pacer game so far and many other games on NBA League Pass, I've concluded the officiating has been awful. Did you see the play last night when CPaul stripped LeBron and was called for a foul? I've seen numerous players take 3-4 steps with no call. Deng took 3 1/2 steps, flung into one of our guys and drew a foul??!! That's when Frank got a T. The older official we had on Wednesday is just incompetent. I totally understand it is extremely hard to officiate this game with the size and speed of the players. I do, however, know when someone walks with the ball. He gains an advantage. He now becomes impossible to guard and he is trying to cause a collision and get a phantom whistle.
The games are exciting. The level of play is extraordinary. The officiating sucks.
