I hear ya. I don't demand perfection. This example is one call in a 6 game series. It happens. My major point is how multiple crews allowed Siakam to utilize this clear push off all series long some 5-6 times a game and yet not a single call all series long. That's the shit that's ass and why NBA officials generally get shit on more than most officials in the major sports.To be fair, he does appear to throw his left elbow and forearm out against a defender who appeared to be trying to avoid contact, he didn't connect though. But I could see where the ref would think he did.
This is why the NBA needs to change the challenge rules. Having no more challenges, even after a sucessful one is crazy, imo. That call could have ended up being a problem for the Sixers if Harden ended up in foul trouble later in the game.
Obviously they can't be stopping the game a bunch of times to challenge calls, but they should have more than 1 challenge.
