The NBA says there is no need for the Strauss rule after playoff time-shifts; Plus, a non-cosmetic nose job for Heat Robinson

While looking for positives shortly after his team’s playoff elimination two weeks earlier, Miami Heat coach Eric Spoelstra noted the strange implementation of the NBA review, which showed his team’s scoring well after the fact in that Game 7. Removed Max Strauss 3-pointer from laser. Loss to Boston Celtics.

“I’m sure,” Spoelstra said at the time, “they’ll look into that and we’ll probably be a case study for it.”

Obviously, that won’t happen, as Monty McCutchen, the NBA’s senior vice president for referee development and training, explained to ESPN in the midst of the NBA Finals.

“When a game is in 7, it gets more attention,” McCutcheon said of the Eastern Conference Finals game on May 29 at the FTX Arena, “but there were 15 other incidents where points were taken off a team this year.” were given — including Miami, ironically — throughout the season. Now, there were probably hundreds of close calls to be out of bounds where he would have reviewed the house. Let’s say Strauss, in that case, inbounds by two or three inches. It would have been there. It would still have been reviewed.”

Heat’s issue was the result of a triggered review to see if Strauss was beyond the 3-point line, and found that, in the replay-center view, he stepped sideways, not declared until after the fact. The score was changing in the middle of a Celtics rally. It was not, Spoelstra insisted, a reason the Heat cited for the loss.

“One of the important things I want my fan base to know is that the process is much quicker now,” McCutcheon said compared to previous NBA processes. “In my career, we waited for that mandatory timeout to review it as referees on the floor. Now, instead of that mandatory timeout that happened much later, we were able to communicate it back to the table and It was fixed, I think, 8:28 [in game time, after the shot was credited with 11:04 to play in that third period]Several minutes of savings from the old policy.”

McCutcheon explained that the options were limited.

“We can’t announce those in live action,” he said. “As the ball is being dribbled, no one wants a declaration that interrupts the flow through the frustum. If you hear that when you’re going for a lay-up and you’ve only missed three points , so it could really affect the game. Secondly, if we did it in live action and just took the point off without announcing it, you can well imagine the confusion it takes to see the team Will take and think they had three points without understanding why they don’t have three and then argue about it during live action. So we think the first dead ball is an opportune moment.

“Now, in Strauss’s example, when it was announced, there were two dead balls before that. Although both were quite fast. One was an out-of-bounds in the backcourt where we gave him the ball as soon as he was ready, and the other there was some element of little confusion because there was a defensive three [seconds] included, so it was not announced. It was about 30 seconds before it was announced, so it wasn’t a physical difference to the outcome of the game in our view, those 30 seconds. ,

the nose knows

Heat’s first surgery of the off-season is at hand, to give guard Duncan Robinson a breather.

Robinson confirmed the need for postseason surgery on his podcast, but not from anything stemming from this season or his work with the Heat.

“I have a fracture in my nose, which resulted in a kind of disorientation,” he said, noting the problems he’s had with nasal breathing over the years. “And he said it was like changing lives for his sleep, for his performance, for his conditioning.”

So with the end of summer, he said the time was right.

“I thought the time had come,” he said. “It doesn’t really put you out there for that long, 10 days or so.”

And, no, he said, not cosmetic surgery.

“Nothing will change visually,” he said.

lullaby lane

Heat guard Kyle Lowry, who helped the Toronto Raptors win the 2019 NBA title, is among those to name a Toronto street in his honor on Monday.

Kyle Lowry Road will be one of eight new streets in the North York neighborhood. The same neighborhood will now also house Champions Road, which, according to planners, will “remember the rewards of hard work, commitment and passion” for the Raptors 2019 Championships.
