Watch between seconds 4 and 5 of the video


LeBron pushes the ball to the open court for a fast break, and Jordan was clearly pushed to the ground when the play was shown in slow mo.

Now watch between seconds 8 and 9. Jeffers went for a charge as LeBron went for a dunk which will be the poster of the month. Was this a charge? Nothing? Or a Blocking foul?

The first question is more important. To me, I think it was clearly a pushing foul, even if the contact was incidental. As with Jeffers' charge attempt, I think he should be lucky that he wasn't called for an and-one given that the refs were giving a lot of calls in the Heatles' favor. Though he will be forever known as getting posterized in this game, the second or two before the poster shows if the guy made a hustle on D or just stood there like when Vince dunked over the French guy. It's clear here that Jeffers made a hard fought attempt for a charge, but even I can tell you that he wasn't there quickly enough.

this play was the pivotal point of the game that just demoralized the Wizards, mainly because Crawford got knocked down.

The problem is that Jeffers is in the restricted area. So he's lucky LeBron didn't get an and 1.

As for the possible foul on LeBron pushing Crawford. It's a loose ball both players are going for it. LeBron is strong as an ox, so I don't know if it's a hard push or if it's Crawford selling it or literally pinging off of James.

Just saying as a Laker fan watching Shaq for many years... when you're a mass amount of muscle and power, smaller dudes can bounce off you.

So it's 50/50... they didn't call it.

I do agree with you Wiz... I watched the game and there were a lot of missed calls in the Heat favor. But I feel like you guys lost when John Wall lost his shit.

When the Wizards lost Wall, they lost the game...

I'll give you the restricted lane issue, so the refs called it right with a no call. As for a possible loose ball foul for lebron, I think it was in the replay, though Miami doesn't show it in their broadcast.

Watching a different feed for the same game could really skew thing, and you can basically see how biase our announcers and their announcers are.

I've heard the Miami broadcast team... they're possibly one of the most biased and annoying duo's out there.

Can't be as biased as Austin Carr and uh.. Fred McCloud(?).. but I like them biased. Can relate. Cool

The color analyst for Cleveland is the most biased in the NBA I think. He loves to..... lay the HAMMER DOWN after every slam!
