Default If crooked ref is Bennete Salvador, I demand a title for the Mavs

He single handedly turned around that series for the heat with that terrible foul call on Wade for less than 1 second left.

Mavericks should never have been in that position. if they had only taken care of business in Game 3

So the Mavs should have gone up 3-0 on a pretty good team? With the circumstances I agree but otherwise I dont... The Mavs should have won Game 5.

exactly. in a seven-game series, there were infinite moments where, had the Mavs taken care of business, the refs wouldn't have been able to change anything.

I agree. Refs make bad calls or miss calls all the time. A team shouldn't let themselves be in the position where one call can destroy their chance at a championship.

There are about a million opportunities in a game of basketball. Multiply that over a seven game series. Making a couple of better decisions with the opportunities presented would prevent a game being "won by the refs".

But then, Salvatore also blew two calls at the end of Lakers/Suns game 4 to hand L.A. the game.

If that doesn't happen, the Suns show up in Dallas with more rest, and maybe Raja Bell doesn't get injured. So, shouldn't you be giving that title to the Suns instead?

1 Call does not make a 7 game series. At least I hope.

I agree but this was not just a regular call... it was a game winner and series changer

only if the refs are clean and the bad calls are accidental and not on purpose.

if there is a purposeful bad call at the end of a game then yes it does affect the entire series. it could be possible even that every time Team A gets momentum, the dirty ref makes a call to stop it. A ref could have A TON of power to decide the game if he really wanted to. Its as simple as calling 2 or 3 touch fouls on a teams best player to get them out of the game.

Pretty sure the thread was about one call. Not a crooked ref making a series of momentum killing and series altering terrible calls.

Obviously that would change the outcome.

hilarious. If the Mavs had made one more three point shot, one more defensive rebound, one less turnover, they would have won game 3 and gone on to win the NBA championship.

I can't believe this is still up for discussion, ESPECIALLY after they choked out big-time in the FIRST ROUND against the warriors.
