The Griffin block on Hamilton should have been a goaltend, and when Austin Johnson threw it out of bounds with us defending it should have been our ball. The refs really were not good in the last 3 or so minutes.
I'm not sure I've seen a player that consistently travels as much as Blake Griffin. Almost every move he makes is a travel and never gets called. At least twice he glided about 10 feet without taking a dribble.
I'm not one to normally put it on the refs, but the final 3 minutes of that ball game was horrible. When we were down 3 and Blake traveled in the corner and then kicked it out for Willie Warren to put them up 6... that was the game. The ref blew an obvious call and it cost us at least a CHANCE at winning.
Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?
McDermott needs to make it a point early in these big home games to "set a tone" with the officials. He is way too nice. If he sort "shows them up" early on, or even gets T'd up, I think it pays off later in games. Tim Floyd was great at that!
