With the sport tied at 131 within the last moments, Brown pulled up for a possible go-ahead shot and was initially fouled by Buddy Hield. But the Pacers challenged the decision, and it was surprisingly overturned despite the fact that it appeared Hield made contact with Brown’s head. Official James Williams defined that Hield hit the ball, resulting in the overturn determination.
The Pacers regained possession and gained the sport after Kristaps Porzingis fouled Bennedict Mathurin on a 3-pointer with 0.6 seconds and Mathurin made two of three free throws. Brown was left fuming and ranted in regards to the controversial name after the sport.
“I think he obviously hit me in the head,” Brown advised reporters in Indiana. “I feel we undoubtedly have to do some investigation, that’s all I’m going to say. I feel that was an apparent one. Like I’ve by no means heard of (the) head (is) a part of the ball. It doesn’t make any sense to me. And I requested him. I went up and requested … like did I get hit within the head? He appears me straight within the face, James, and he says, ‘No, you didn’t get hit within the head.’ And I’m like, ‘OK.’ Then you come down and make… on the opposite finish. Like that value our staff the sport, and also you count on us to not be annoyed, you already know what I imply? We’re attempting to construct nice habits. We’re attempting to win as many video games as potential, and we simply dropped one due to that.
“So, I feel like we got the right to be upset and the league should understand. Of course we’re going to say something about it after the game, so I don’t think there should be any fines. But I definitely think that one should be investigated.”
Brown mentioned after the decision was made, he went to Williams to substantiate the official didn’t suppose he bought hit within the head. He wasn’t happy along with his response.
“I asked him, did I get hit in the head?” Brown mentioned. “Because that was the one question I wanted to make sure that we both… and he said, no. And I asked him again, are you sure? And he said yes. That’s what pissed me off. Because I know I got hit in the head. And then you see the replay, it’s pretty obvious that I got hit in the head, and then you look me in my eye and tell me that I didn’t? I think that needs to be investigated. It cost my team a game and of course I’m pissed about it.”
The league will difficulty a Last 2-Minute Report from Monday evening’s recreation late on Tuesday afternoon which is able to reveal what the proper name ought to have been. Celtics coach Joe Mazzulla mentioned that Hield advised him that he did foul Brown.
