In recent years, the anger towards the referees making questionable calls has risen through the roofs. Time and time again, players have urged the NBA to do something about this issue as bad calls can alter the result of a game. LA Clippers shooting guard Paul George believes that is what happened tonight in their fixture vs the Dallas Mavericks.
The Mavs blew the Clippers out as they lost the game by 16 points. While Luka Doncic’s scoring outburst got all the highlights, there was one thing that might prove George’s point.
There were many times during the game that the whistle should have been blown while LA attacked inside the paint. However, the team only got 11 free throws in the entire ball game.
But one thing that has led fans to believe this is all but an excuse was the Mavs also got only 12 free throws in the game. If the gap was wider, one might have believed George’s appeal. Regardless of that, there is no doubt the number of awful foul calls has increased in the last few years.
Paul George blames NBA officials for Clippers’ defeat
According to a report by ESPN, George wants the league to take a look at tonight’s game footage. George stated:
“We’re putting a lot of pressure at the rim. It’s insane that we’re not getting these calls. But it is what it is. It’s nothing new to me. Hopefully, we’ll send a bunch of clips in. League’s gotta take a look at this. Can’t go too much further than that — it’s a bunch of lies. They know what’s going on.”
