I donít know if this was discussed earlier but can someone explain to me why that Lowry foul on Kemba near half court where Kemba was in the air before he was fouled and almost made the 3 point prayer was not ruled a shooting foul and also why Brad didnít challenge it? I mean from my perspective Kemba left his feet, got fouled and launched the shot. I donít get that. And thatís a 3 point swing if it goes our way. Why not challenge that?

I was also confused on that play. I never did understand what they called or what actually happened.
As for a challenge, I've given up on what goes thru Stevens' mind. His lost touch with out-of-bounds plays, especially after timeouts that used to be genius and now are just Tatum iso's along with his apparent fear of chewing on officials or on his own players has been a cause for concern.

half court "shots" rarely rewarded in those situations is the best I can come up with, unless it is last seconds where shot is inevitable.
I just re-watched it. Very bad call. It was at 8:15 of the third quarter with the Cís up 60-51. The Cs had numbers and Lowry just telegraphed that he was going to foul Kemba so Kemba clearly started his shooting motion well before Lowry grabbed him. Textbook shooting foul. They couldíve gone up 63-51. Brad needs to be more alert.

Right after that the Raptors scored the next 8 points. Key juncture of the game in my opinion and challenge wouldíve worked for sure.

Two minute report from last night's game: Lowry got away with a travel and VanVleet got away with a foul on Grant Williams. No other mistakes by the refs down the stretch.

Refs were much better last night than Game 6.  Although, I suppose that's not saying much.

Yeah, kudos to the NBA for not marring the end of this series by having the refs decide it.

Whatís sad is you had to say that. Game 6 was an embarrassment to fair competition.

Go to the highlights:

just about 33 seconds left, Tatum hits one of the FT's and Raptors bring the ball up score : 90-87

Brown and Smart are isolated with Van Vleet and Siakam deep near the Raps bench.

VV + Siakam try their butts off to pick Brown or Smart into biting onto a move. NOTHING.

Then Freddie tries to drive past Brown. NOTHING.

Raps reset, Freddie chucks a prayer from deep...miss...Walker rebound gets fouled game over.

Watch Brown swallow Freddie...that was the game winner right there.
Wasn't that GWill on FVV?

At the end yes, but before it got to that Brown iced FVV's baseline drive attempt twice, which was part of whatever play they were trying to run. That forced FVV  to pull it out where he got GWIII switched onto him, but by then so much time had run of the court that a 3 attempt was really their only option.
