Absolutely killed the pace by putting the teams in the bonus early and that slower pace favors the 76ers, too bad they couldn't shoot FTs for ****.
The defense was getting super physical in the 2nd half and they tried to take control w/ some cheap calls. But the game slowed down so much with calls on every possession, so I'm sure they were trying to let some stuff go or the game would've been 5 hours long, but some of the stuff they were letting go was pretty egregious. At that point they just lost control trying to balance moving the game along, but not able to let all the grabbing and hacking go. I was kinda mad at some of that stuff at the time, but it went both ways at least. Philly is a hard team to ref, they play really physical defense and slash a lot on offense.
