Lyou Milwaukee Bucks They won the fourth game of the Finals, 109-103 but, if they had not, at this point no one would talk about the Antetokounmpo and yes of another play that could be capital for the luck of the eliminatory.
At 3:38 by the end of the game Jrue Holiday he was about to score in a clear counterattack but Devin Booker prevented it. He met the Bucks player and performed an action that, by all accounts, seemed a very clear personal fault.
Had it been flagged, Holiday would have had two free throws. But even more important was the fact that the lack meant the elimination of Booker, wearing five. No referee on the court saw her. Amazing.
Asked about the play, Holiday said at the end of the game: “I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know“, in a clear reaction for not putting gasoline on the fire and, above all, because the Bucks had won.
That was what saved the head referee, James Capers, who acknowledged at the end of the game that there was a lack: “Live I perceived that the plug was clear and I did not appreciate lack. Then, seeing it repeated, I do see a contact from Booker’s shoulder and I should have pointed out the lack in defence”.
Fortunately for Caspers, it was Antetokounmpo’s cap that will go down in the history of these Finals, because the Bucks won, and not the omission of a clear foul that could have much more significance than it did.
