That was basically a free coaches challenge to a team that had already used theirs. Essentially Minnesota got 2 coaches challenge in the last couple minutes of the game.

Someone should follow up on how the league grades that call. Another BS call was the RoCo layup ruled a foul on RoCo after KAT undercut him in midair.

yeah, but blocking was the correct call. If the situation was reversed, and there had been no review we would be ticked off about that

Yeah, that was horrible as well. He got undercut so he put his arm out to protect himself, he doesn't do that if KAT doesn't initiate the contact in midair. Usually that call goes as a flagrant the other way as its reckless and endangering to the player in the air.


The whole end of the game felt a little bit like the league didn't want Portland to win both games. We didn't play great but neither did the Twolves and the only reason we didn't pull out a win being the better team at the end of game was the stripes.

It was the correct call but how many other times during the game do they make the wrong call and they always say it's part of the game. I guess I think the review should have to stick directly to the reason for the review, no using it as carte blanche to review the entire play. Lamar Hurd made the point, and gave several recent examples showing they are extremely inconsistent about this.. so its less about being fair and more about being able to put their finger on the scale when they want.
