It was ball first, then contact

I don't know how the rules work when the block leads to a contact

in this case its clean block vs momentum of offensive player. It should be ruled a block.

That was a block man. He had the ball blocked first. Durant lost possession of the ball after.

About as clean a block as you can have. Ball first, then contact is a defensive play on the ball. Contact first, then missed/contested shot is a foul.

he follows through with his arm swinging downward. clear foul. if he kept his arms straight up it'd be cool. good for okafor. still a huge bum. remember when bosh dropped 27 points on him on 9/9 shooting? lol

Those of you calling that a foul should be ashamed of yourselves.

Its a hard call for a ref in the heat of the moment but you have slo mo replay showing contact with the ball before momentum created contact.

Dick Bavetta loves you though.

Okafor got ball, Durant's momentum created the arm contact as he pushed through for the dunk. No foul

It's tough to see live, so I have no problem with the non-call, but in hindsight with replay, it's an obvious foul.

DURANT STILL HAS THE BALL AFTER OKAFOR GRAZES IT. IT DOESN'T MATTER IF HE TOUCHED THE BALL FIRST. HIS FOLLOW THROUGH AFTERWARDS WAS A COMPLETE FOUL.

he didn't "get" the ball, he altered it at first and Durant was STILL palming it.

Instead of stopping it head on, he changed it's course of direction while Durant was still controlling it. His follow through was swatting it down on Durant's wrist..THAT part was a foul. It wouldn't have been a foul if Okafor kept his hands straight up in the air.

Ignore everything before the moment of the screenshot that i took. The sequence of events is: 1) ball in Durant's hands 2) Okafor hits Durant's wrists downwards and gets no ball

It doesn't get any simpler than that.

Jason Maxiell still has the best highlights of meeting guys at the rim and blocking dunk attempts.

No, Okafor clearly goes up and gets full ball. The contact with Durants wrist is on the follow through caused by Durant pushing forward.

You guys are acting like there are two seperate plays, the initial block then the subsequent contact on the wrist. In this case they are not. The initial contact is on the ball, the rest of the play is incidental contact.

I've been wanting Okafor for a long time now, if you can swap Oak for Bargnani, you do it in a heartbeat. He won't demand a lot of shots I think he'll be a perfect fit here beside Davis.

If I remember correctly, when Bosh was still here, a trade was proposed that would send G.Wallace/Okafor from the Bobcats for Bargnani. Jesus...
