    That's, like, pretty much the worst thing I've ever seen.

    Also running away from the ref is a technical. NBA basketball is awesome!

    Honestly, the coach should have gotten himself tossed after that, a call like that is deserving of a tirade. The game was over anyways.

    Listening to the announcers, It sounds like Lowry sticks his feet out and trips guys during shots. I think this was terrible call, but I think the refs were using a preconceive notion on that based on Lowry's past action.

    But the was just a terrible call and to get ejected!

    Maybe banning the jumpshot will solve the problem. SMH.

    Tim Donaghy approves.

    That might be the worst call I have ever seen. That ref needs to be fired immediately.

    That was a terrible spectacle overall.

    The offensive foul call is a prime candidate for worst officiating call ever, but even on top of that; how the hell do you T a guy up for running away?!?!? Guys react WWWWWAAAAAYYYYYY worse than he did all the time without warranting anything.

    Agreed. I commend the coach for maintaining his composure as well as he did!

    They never call that, but I actually kind of like it. At any other time in the game, if you tripped a guy, it would be a foul. However, shooters can kick their legs out and sometimes draw a foul because of it.

    The whole reason the shooter kicked his legs out was to try to trick the refs and draw a foul. I kinda like the ref who didn't fall for it and actually had the balls to call the foul on the shooter.

    The fact that in the NBA what he did afterwards is deserving of a Technical foul is just unbelievable.

    Except on this particular play he didn't even come close to kicking his leg out.
