Raptors Star Couldn’t Believe Ref’s Call
Raptors star Kyle Lowry thought he had a chance to cut the Kings’ lead to two when a foul was called as he buried 3-pointer in the final minute of regulation. But when the referee waived off the clutch basket and called an offensive foul on Lowry, the Toronto point guard got back to his feet and ran all the way to the end of the court.
Sacramento’s Ben McLemore was guarding Lowry on an inbounds play and appeared to make contact with him during the shot. But the official apparently thought Lowry had kicked out his legs as he launched the 3-pointer.
With 25.5 seconds left in the game, Lowry was handed his second technical foul of the game for his reaction (and his sixth foul total), resulting in an ejection. Lowry just kept on walking as he made his way to the locker room.
The Kings went on to win 109-101.
