Ok first off, Brent Barry did indeed travel, you can see him pick up and move both feet before even dribbling. And also i believe the reason there was a no call is cause Barry lowered his head and shoulders and went into Fisher. If it wasn't a game deciding call i would say it would have been called a foul, but i know from experience the refs at ALL LEVELS of basketball always try and let the

Do you really still feel that deserved a call? Even the Spurs didn't complain about it, doesn't that say anything? They knew the only reason they were even in the game the first 3 quarters was because of the refs.

Lots of discussion on that last play. Two things for those who don't know about the finer points of basketball:

1) A player cannot step into or dribble underneath a defender who's in the air. That defender has a right to come down in his spot. Brent Barry dribbled into Fisher after faking the 3. This is in the referee's rulebook. No foul.

2) Brent Barry travelled on that last

2008-05-28T12:28:00.000-04:00

I say if Barry would have went up for the shot first instead of bringing the ball down and dribbling into Fisher he would have got the foul.Bad decision on Barry.Good call.

2008-05-28T10:53:00.000-04:00

Good no call. Had Barry not hesitated once Fischer was up in the air and shot the ball right away, I could see a foul called. Barry decided to take an extra dribble and initiate a LITTLE contact on Fischer's way down. Just an opinion.

2008-05-28T10:52:00.000-04:00

@gmoney-I propose the refs call it like they see it. Seems simple, doesn't it?

A foul is a foul..no matter what the score is or how much time is left in the game.

2008-05-28T10:47:00.000-04:00

Good gravy, why did Finley back up to half-court?!? With 2.1 left you could have easily got off an inbounds pass-fake-pass-shot from 25-28 feet on the wing. By backpedaling, Finley is completely out of the play, practically forcing Fisher to rotate to the ball, wasting the solid screen by Ginobli.

That's a no-call on a Wednesday night in the 3rd quarter in Milwaukee, and a no-call at

2008-05-28T10:28:00.000-04:00

Complain all you want to about the refs, but what do you propose as a change??? These are apparently the best in the world so if they suck...well, it looks like there will always be bad officials.

Seems like something we will always have to deal with...like Tony Romo's homosexuality.

2008-05-28T10:10:00.000-04:00

Say what you will...that call should have been made. I'm kinda surprised it wasn't, considering the Associations' love of long($$$) series.

The officiating in the NBA has boggled my mind for as long as I've watched(30+ yrs.) No wonder conspiracy theorists abound.
There are always a few "givens"...Rookies get hosed...Vets get suspect calls...whistles get swallowed late...blah blah

2008-05-28T09:37:00.001-04:00

Karma is a bitch, Spurs. Play how you play, and don't bitch when you don't get a call. Ask David West and the other Hornets about how shitty officiating affects games. Everything involved with the NBA from the play to the officiating is a joke.

2008-05-28T09:37:00.000-04:00

$100,000 says Cheap Shot Rob vents his frustration in the fifth (and final) game, giving Vujacic the Steve Nash hip-check.

This whole "NBA wants the Lakers to win" conspiracy theory is so tired. Everybody knows the Spurs are the most boring team in the world, and yet the NBA has given them plenty of calls. Remember Amare's suspension for leaving the bench? Nash's bloody nose? Or,

The Spurs are a dirty and cheap shot team. Karmic payback is a bitch!! Bowen will try to goon Kobe next game. Just watch for it!!

2008-05-28T09:33:00.000-04:00

I'd just like to point out that, while "agreeance" may be a word in some languages, English is not among them. Are we all in agreement?

2008-05-28T09:25:00.000-04:00

after the crap the spurs have gotten away with over the past two playoffs, they deserve all the negative karma they get.

2008-05-28T07:24:00.000-04:00

I didn't watch the game, so I can't comment on other calls during the game. However, considering he got fouled AFTER the pump fake, why couldn't they have called it a NON-shooting foul??? I think the Spurs should have gotten 2, not 3, free throws, but still gone to the line.

2008-05-28T04:43:00.000-04:00

In the last minute...

Kobe Bryant got mauled going to the basket by Tim Duncan. No call was made.

Lamar Odom got called for a goaltend he never actually committed.

The Lakers got a shot-clock violation when they had a shot to run the clock out (or get fouled to hit free throws to ice it).

And yet, the NBA wants the Lakers to make the Finals, so they give

2008-05-28T03:47:00.000-04:00

oOf course he will be a big deal. We all know the NBA refs suck and always favor the lakers over anyone else. On top of that, that ref who did illegal game fixing said ref/player/coach relations play and have played a HUGE role in deciding games. Should be a foul. was not. The NBA wants la in the finals, so they put duncan's nemesis to ref it. Crawford should not ref this one.

2008-05-28T01:43:00.000-04:00

I think that the two straight 50/50 calls that went in favor of the Spurs led to a 'make-up' call of sorts. The goaltend that wasn't, followed by the airball that wasn't, either of which could have effectively ended the game.

This wasn't really a 50/50 call (to be honest, I believe it should have been a foul on the floor, shooting 2). But the Lakers got extra leeway due to the pair of

who was the idiot running the TNT camera?
why did they zoom OUT? it sure was nice to see the 10th row on the inbounds pass.
