NBA refs: ‘We missed’ LeBron getting tackled in Game 2

LeBron James' left eye speak volumes as to what has happened to the Cavaliers in the first two games of the NBA Finals.

Fans of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and members of the organization itself, have been anything but pleased with the officiating in Games 1 and 2 of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors.

The official Twitter account of the NBA referees posted a message Monday afternoon stating what anyone who watched Game 2 already knew — the referees missed LeBron James of the Cavaliers being undercut and taken down by Steph Curry of the Warriors… and no call was made, other than out of bounds for the Warriors.

Here’s the play:

The first sentence of the post by the NBA referees’ account no doubt received a mammoth, “DUH!!!!” from basketball fans across the world:

“We missed this one.”

“Closed look?” More like, “no look”… for the three guys with whistles.

Mistakes made at crunch time in Game 1 the cost the Cavaliers dearly, acknowledged by the NBA in its Last Two Minute Report.

Missed calls such as the one above in Game 2, also against the Cavaliers.

What’s in store for Game 3? Know what? Scratch that… we don’t want to know.

  1. How come, I believe it was TMZ, is the only media outlet to have caught the ref making the out of bounds pass to Hill as James stood in amazement? That’s sort of a big deal when a NBA ref, especially one that’s officiated the Finals, doesn’t know the rules. How simple does it have to be? I mean I thought everyone knew the players throw the ball out on a inbounds play. Then again, in 2015 against the Celtics James had the ball knocked out from behind as he was trying to inbound the ball.

  2. i know LeBron could have played in NFL. maybe their refs would have pass interference,Curry, and faceguarding,Klay. not to beleaguere the point but an entire first half and Draymond has zero fouls? maybe NBA can send refs who can actually see for game 3.

  3. Refs have done a great job of wrecking this series.

  4. BLIND OR RIGGED ????? BOTH !!!
    Game 1 call overturned-is SUPPOSED TO BASED ON REVIEWING THE FEET OUTSIDE THE LINE-REMAINING A CHARGE OR BECOMING THE BLOCK. Many who say refs are not at fault for losing say G.Hill’s missed free throw is what cost them–FAILING TO RESPOND AT ALL TO Draymond’s PREMATURE STEP INTO THE LANE–Calling for ANOTHER FREE THROW SHOT–WHICH REF’S ALSO DECIDED NOT TO PURSUE–IN A FINALS GAME ???
    BLIND OR RIGGED ??? BOTH !
    TACKLED OR NOT,,,, ?
    IN THIS TACKLING, DID ANYONE TAKE A VERY CLOSE SLOW-MO LOOK AT CURRY’S LEFT LEG BEING LIFTED TO TRY TO TRIP LEBRON TOO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO !!!!!!!!!!! WHY ?????? SUSPENSION ANYONE ???????????????
