Good Post , this was a key Play but there was also some " No Calls " against the Heat on other players in this last quarter. Chandler was in the " No Charge Zone " and the correct call should have been " Blocking ". This wiped out a 2 point bucket and a potential 3 point play . It was again favorable for Dallas which was in essence a 5 point play in favor of the home town team late in the game . Crawford erased a potential 3 point play for the Heat which could have taken a one point lead over Dallas at 101-100 and could have sparked confidence much needed by Lebron with 2:30 left in the game. The refs decided to call ticky taky fouls against the Heat while letting Dallas " Play on " with friendly " No Calls" on blatant fouls on Heat players. The NBA refs have more power than any other ref in sports period. Here is the rule in its entirety:


NBA "No Charge Zone"
The NBA has an additional rule regarding offensive fouls that the high school and college level do not have. The "No Charge Zone" is a half-circle underneath the hoop where defensive players are not allowed to draw offensive fouls. If the defensive player is inside the half-circle, or has a foot on the line when the offensive player runs into him, the defensive player is called for a blocking foul, even if he establishes a position under the hoop.

Sorry, Crawford should be fired or Hired by Dallas to call more bad calls against the Heat . Crawford is Dallas's secret weapon sending the Mavs and Dirk on bad calls. I wont even mention the " no calls" on Mav fouls against the Heat. The correct call was " Blocking " which is called 90% of the time when in the "No Charge Zone " unless it is a Miami Heat player in Dallas. The refs destroy this great game. The definition below:

I love it. Clarification at its finest! I 100% agree with you on this. Thank you for shedding light on this!

Yes the rule is fair. Lets talk hypothetical, in this play lets say that the ball had not been touched. The ball "could have" hit and bounced over the approaching fielders head and went into the corner, resulting in a triple. Or it "could have" hit and bounced right to the fielder and they could have thrown BR out at second. Who knows the only thing that isn't fair is the fact that they let ignorant fans sit so close to the field!

Replay slows football down due to location and rules. If you setup a monitor right by homeplate, it will be a quick look to get the call right. A W is too big of a deal to lose due to a bad call.

Im still not sold on the replay though I hate how it slows down the game! But I hate seeing a team get ref'd over! Really a double edge sword for me
