NBA Admits Refs Got It Wrong Twice in Knicks/Nets Game Including on Julius Randle Call.
After a crushing loss to the Nets this week, Knicks’ Julius Randle said the refs admitted to being biased in their officiating. Knicks Coach Tom Thibodeau said he was pissed and Randle got heated with the refs after claiming one told him that he could handle contact because of his size and strength. Randle was still upset during the post-game press conference.
Now the NBA has admitted that the refs got two big calls wrong including a foul on Randle that should have been called. The NBA said refs should have called a foul on James Harden when he made contact with Julius Randle’s arm during a jump shot with 1:49 remaining on the clock.
Randle received a technical foul for getting upset when it was not called.
The Knicks lost by two points so the calls could have made the difference.
