It's a good call.

Regardless, unless it's some blatant foul I don't believe in calling something like that in that situation.

Terrible call. I hate people who complain about refs, but that was one of the WORST calls I've ever seen following the NBA (over 20 years).

Quick fact - 82% of people bet on the Celtics. Did a call come in from Vegas during that last timeout?

Yeah I thought it was a bad call but you can see him touch his elbow at 1:15. :-?

Ball don't lie I guess.

It was a foul, and it's was the right call.

Who cares about the situation of the game. It's a foul, and should be called that. End of story.

Yeah technically it' a foul and I don't think you can argue against it but they never call touch fouls like that at the end of games (Bulls fans should know that :wink:) so I can see why Celtic fans are angry.

It was the second night of a home/road back to back after they just got back from a WC trip. You can't expect much more.

I think most people would agree, but that's such ticky tack bull that's rarely, if ever, called. Plus they "let them play" at the end of games so they just need to be consistent.

What makes it worse is that it was a late call.

Sure but do it for everyone and not just in a star struck situation with Butler. This kind of thing would never get called 9/10 times.

It's the right call, but I have a hard time believing that the ref was 100% sure from his angle.

This is the product of the last 2 minute reports.
Thanks for ruining everything, KD....

I think the ref was just waiting to see if it was going to go in or not...Sadly refs do that a lot these days on calling fouls

I agree, there was a slight touch, but how often is that ever called even during the game much less at the last shot.
