(Note: in slow motion and zoomed to the foot it can be seen that the foot slides maybe 2-3 cm-s, however this can be seen only in zoomed play. Normally such minimal and marginal sliding occurs at every pivoting movement). The referees should avoid to call travelling just on the base that the movement is strange or unusual. That is guess.

3767 days B125 Travel-Dribble The player does not hold the ball while he falls over and stands up so he does not have a pivot foot and he cannot commit travelling violation. It is legal to stand up while he dribbles the ball.
3767 days A381 Screening The offensive player screens legally and the defensive player embraces him and pushes him away. DEFENSIVE FOUL.
3769 days A380 Advantage-Disadvantage This is a good example of the opportunity to advantage-disadvantage rule. As it is not about the last defensive player, we cannot call unsportsmanlike. Normal foul is more appropriate but here the referee should decide whether the no call is more favorable for the offensive player. In this situation it is clearly right, because they are outnumbered and the movement of the ball handler is continuous.
3769 days C73 Responsibility-Competence 3PO This situation is neither responsibility nor competence of the lead but the trail.
3770 days A378 Advantage-Disadvantage The defensive player is clearly vertical and he does not commit any foul. Even if he would be illegal then we have to also apply the advantage-disadvantage principal because he passes the ball to his teammate standing unguardly under the basket.
3770 days A379 Screening The offensive player screens legally and he is not moving. The defensive player flops and therefore he has to be warned during a dead ball situation.
3771 days A377 Charge-Block The defensive player establishes his legal guarding position, he moves laterally but he does not reach the place of contact first because the contact happens on his hip and not on his upper body. DEFENSIVE FOUL.

3772 days D26 Special situations Defensive player makes an unsportsmanlike foul. Because of that the offensive player passes the ball to his opponent's head. It's very unsportsmanlike, the referees must call disqualifying foul. Defensive player falls down theatrically after contact itself occurs. He should get a technical foul.
3773 days D25 Special situations Ball should fall out or stay in the net. The game goes on.
3773 days B122 Goaltending-Interference After the ball has already touched the ring, it can be tapped by any player. Legal play.
3777 days A376 Charge-Block The defensive player does not stand entirely inside of the semicircle so the no charge area rule cannot be applied. OFFENSIVE FOUL.
3777 days C72 Positioning 3PO If the players pass the ball on the weak side (from the lead's view) then most of the times he should run on the ball's side. There is an exception, when the ball is immediately shot, like in this situation. The centre can control the shot perfectly.
3779 days B121 Goaltending-Interference The defender touches the ball in its upward flight then he hits the backboard but he does not cause to vibrate the basket. No call would be the correct decision.
3779 days C71 Responsibility-Competence 3PO The centre has to decide the goal-tending, not the lead. But if there is such a fast break, and the lead will not reach his place and that's why he has a perfect view on the ball, so it's not a mistake if he decides if it touched the backboard.
3780 days B120 Goaltending-Interference The ball is in its downward flight when the defender touches it. Goaltending, basket shall be awarded.
3780 days C70 Responsibility-Competence 3PO If there is a rebound situation, the lead always have to be right on his place to see if the players catch each other.

Of course, the centre can help him, but it is the trail's role primarily.
3782 days A375 Screening Red 12 pushes his defender when he's leaving the screen. It is offensive foul and it should be called by the trail.
3783 days A374 Unsportsmanlike When the referee has got the chance to decide between advantage-disadvantage and unsportsmanlike foul then he must always call unsportsmanlike foul because is more favorable for the innocent team.
3784 days C69 Responsibility-Competence 3PO In these situations, when the block is over the basketball ring , the lead can not make a decision in the absence of perfect view because of the backboard. The trail has to help him, that's why it is important not to drop behind if there is a fast break to give the help if the lead needs. There the lead makes the decision, a bad one.
3784 days B119 Backcourt The white team has control of the ball when an opponent touches the ball. A white player touches the ball before it returns to the backcourt. Then a white player touches the ball in the backcourt. Violation.
3785 days C68 Responsibility-Competence 3PO This call is not the responsibility of the centre because it is out of his competence area and he cannot see the space between the two players. This could only be called by the Lead.
3785 days C67 Responsibility-Competence 3PO To call this foul is the task of centre, it's his competence, because he can have a look between the two players. It's true, that the situation happens on the lead's responsibility area, but he can't decide about the extent of the contact because he sees just the defender's back. The centre has the good position to call.
3786 days C66 Positioning 3PO At the time, when the ball was passed under the free-throw line on the right side, and the player who gets the ball didn't shoot it but started dribbling, the lead has to start the rotation because none of the referees see between the two player to check the small contact
3786 days B118 Travel-Dribble The defender could land on the floor without causing a contact with the offensive player. Contact occurs because the offensive player takes a step forward when the defender is in the air. In this case the defensive player is not responsible for the contact. Then the offensive player lifts his pivot foot before the ball releases his hand on a dribble. Travelling violation is the correct decision.
3787 days A373 Unsportsmanlike Foul occurs when defensive player is in front of his opponent and there is a defender between him and the basket. NORMAL PERSONAL foul should be called.
3787 days A372 Verticality The defensive player establishes his legal guarding position before the offensive player would jump. The defensive player jumps vertically, he is not responsible for the contact it is caused by the offensive player who jumps forward.

3788 days B117 Free throw The center official is responsible for the free throw shooter who steps into the restricted area before the ball touches the ring. Violation.
3788 days A371 Act of shooting The offensive player has already picked up the ball, when the contact occurs. Free throws should have been awarded.

3794 days B114 Travel-Dribble The ball is bounced high and the offensive player attempts to control it and the ball comes to rest in his hand and palms the ball. The official correctly calls illegal dribble violation.
3796 days C63 Positioning 3PO The lead shouldn't stay on the same place during the offense. When the player who makes the shot gets the ball, he has to move under the basket, because if not, none of the referees can see between the players to decide if the defender is vertical. But even if he didn't go under the basket, he should do it when there is a fight for rebound.
3797 days A367 Charge-Block The defensive player moves forward when the contact happens. DEFENSIVE FOUL.
3797 days A366 Screening The screening player steps aside at the last moment.

OFFENSIVE FOUL.
3798 days D24 Rare situations There is 0,2sec left from the quarter when the throw-in happens. In such situation score only can be awarded when tipping or a dunking straightaway. This basket shouldn't count, even if sound arrives later.
3798 days A365 Verticality The defensive player establishes his legal guarding position and stays vertical. The contact is caused by the offensive player but it is negligible. The defensive player is not responsible for the foul he should not be punished. The best decision is NO CALL.
3800 days A364 Unsportsmanlike In this situation the defensive commits a foul from the front so we cannot call unsportsmanlike foul. Normal foul is more favorable for the offensive team using the advantage-disadvantage rule. NO CALL is the best decision.
3802 days C62 Positioning 3PO During one offensive there can be situations when we should make several rotations. This is a very good example for it. Both of the rotations are very appropriate.
3805 days C61 Positioning 3PO Lead referee starts rotation at the beginning of this scene. He should have done it once more during this offense.
3805 days C60 Responsibility-Competence 3PO It's a good example for the situation which does not happen on the centre responsibility area, but it's his competence, because he is in the best position to see between the players, and even has to take an eye on the player who makes the throw-in. It's right that he calls an illegal screen.
3808 days B113 Travel-Dribble A player shall not stand up while holding the ball. It is a travelling violation.
3808 days A363 Charge-Block The defensive player establishes his guarding position in time before the contact. It does not immunize the offensive player that he is looking back when he gets the ball.

3810 days A362 Charge-Block The defensive player establishes his legal guarding position then he moves laterally and backwards. The contact occurs on the torso. OFFENSIVE FOUL.
3810 days C59 Game control The referee calls offensive foul, and after that a technical foul. Player's reaction deserves a technical foul.
3811 days C58 Game control Yes. The player who is about to be substituted doesn't let his opponent throw-in by hitting the ball out of his hands. It is an evident technical foul. Offensive player flops that there was a foul against him. This act is very unsportsmanlike as well, so the right call is technical foul against both players.
3811 days A361 Rebound During the rebound situation the orange player uses his underarm and pushes his opponent causing him disadvantage to get the rebound. FOUL.
3812 days A360 Act of shooting The player with the ball starts moving his arms upwards. It is act of shooting, two free throws should be awarded.

3813 days A358 Advantage-Disadvantage The screening player makes the screen legally, standing. The defensive player tries to bypass him but he bumps a little in the legs of the screening player and causes therefore a slight of contact with the ball handler. This kind of small contact is negligible because it does not cause any disadvantage for the ball handler. He beats his defender and continues his way towards the basket.

3815 days A356 Unsportsmanlike The defensive player steps dangerously under the shooter who is in the air. UNSPORTSMANLIKE FOUL.
3815 days C57 Positioning 3PO The lead shouldn't run so leisurely. He should cut the corner and run behind the players to see the split. From this angle where he calls he couldn't see the contact, so he is just guessing. It's a bad guess.

3820 days A350 Act of shooting The holding foul by Nr. 5 defensive player starts when the ball handler has not even started his act of shooting. But the holding still applies when the act of shooting has already started. When the foul does not last for only one moment but it has got a longer time then we have to choose the moment which is more favorable for the innocent player. The basket can be granted legally and the white team will continue the game with a throw in.
3820 days A351 Verticality All the white players jump vertically. NO CALL.
3821 days A349 Unsportsmanlike Although the defensive player should be considered as a last player during the fast break, but the contact occurs frontally and it is not a rude contact. The movement of the offensive player makes it more spectacular. This is Normal Foul. Mechanics.: It is not the responsibility of the referee on the other side running towards the baseline to call this situation. His partner is two meters away from the happening and calls correctly the normal foul. Poor Team Management.
3821 days A348 Screening The screening player is on the move and additionally he does not give any time and distance for his opponent plus the screen occurs out of his sight. ILLEGAL SCREEN.
3822 days D23 The referee calls a foul against 16 White (it is his 5th personal foul). A White teammate tries to fool the refs that it was his foul, but 16 White gets it.

3857 days C52 Responsibility-Competence 3PO The situation happens in the responsibility area of the lead and the competence area of the centre. In the base-line rebound actions sometimes it happens ,even if there is a good rotation, that the referee could not see between the players who is pushing from the back and the opposite pushed player.

3988 days D18 Handling conflict The referees shouldn't let the coach talk to them in such appropriate way, even not after a technical foul. He should get the second one immediately and he should be disqualified.
4098 days A267 Act of shooting There is only 0,2 sec left, offensive team obviously wants to make a tip-in happen. When ball comes in, offensive player jumps in his cylinder, but the defender is not vertical, and contact is made by him. Foul should be called. Tapping is considered as an act of shooting, so two penalties should be given.

Offensive player holds his opponent's arm to his armpit to make the official believe that his opponent commits a foul. It is an OFFENSIVE foul.

4114 days A262 Special situations In the clip there are two fouls, both happened during the shot. Although the first one is committed from the side, there is another player between the player with ball and the basket, so NORMAL DEFENSIVE foul should be called.

4123 days A255 Charge-Block If defensive player does not stand inside the no charge semi circle, then it is an OFFENSIVE foul. (If he does, it is a no call.)
4123 days D17 Special situations It is an interesting situation, which happens rarely. The trail calls a double foul, correctly, because both player hold each other. Then the offensive player starts the move of shot, and after a second the lead calls foul against defender. In this moment, the ball goes dead, so the second call shouldn't be taken into consideration. If the basket would get into basket, it should be cancelled, because when the first foul happened, the ball didn't leave the shooter's hand.
4124 days B86 Backcourt No backcourt violation occurs as the offensive player has not been in his front court with both feet.
4124 days A254 Unsportsmanlike Offensive player uses his elbow consciously. Normal personal foul is too moderate to call, it is at least an unsportsmanlike one, but taking into consideration that he contacts opponent's head, an unsportsmanlike foul can also be called.
4124 days D16 Rare situations It's a rare situation. The foul is hard, so he should get unsportsmanlike foul. When the ball touches the floor the shot ends, and the ball goes dead. The basket is cancelled. The correct decision is: 2 free-throws and possession at side line.
4125 days A253 Charge-Block Defensive player does not establish the legal guarding position in front of this opponent. Defensive foul.
4125 days A252 Unsportsmanlike It is a fast break. Green 14 is the only player between player with the ball and the basket. However, player is on front of his opponent when contact occurs, and it is not a tough one, cannot be considered as an unsportsmanlike act. The principle of advantage/disadvantage does not apply here, because this contact makes player with ball stop his continuous dribble. Normal DEFENSIVE foul.
4125 days A251 Unsportsmanlike There is a defensive player between player with ball and basket. Contact is not tough, it cannot be considered unsportsmanlike. It is a normal DEFENSIVE foul.
4127 days A250 Game control Defensive player establishes legal guarding position on time. Player argues heavily with wide gestures so technical foul has to be called in order to keep game in the right track.

4127 days B85 Travel-Dribble The offensive player attempts to pass the ball after a dribble

4129 days A245 Charge-Block Defensive player moves laterally and backwards., but contact is on arm and shoulder, so it is DEFENSIVE foul.
4129 days A247 Unsportsmanlike Defender seems to intend to step under shooting player and push him. This act is risky. UNSPORTSMANLIKE foul is the right call.
4129 days A246 Screening Screen is legal. However, defender bumps into screener and he may have got injured. Official should decide to stop the game or not, and here they do, and since this does not put offensive team to a disadvantage it is the right way.
4130 days A243 Screening Screen is illegal and contact is so tough that even UNSPORTSMANLIKE foul could be called.
4130 days A244 Acting Defender's movement is legal. Offensive player falls down, which is a flop. It is a no call, and team (player and coach) should get a warning for flopping, or if there had been before, then a technical fouls should be given to flopping player.

While the offensive player attempts to make a layup, he loses his balance and lands on his pivot foot before the ball releases his hands on a shot for a field goal. Travelling violation.
4134 days D15 Administratif Interesting situation, where the referees take the decision after watching the video. On the spot they made the basket count. Our voting tied (50-50%). Nobody is able to make a decision without the video, but after checking it the right decision would be the cancelling of basket. The reason is that the ball didn't leave the player's shooting hand when there the red sign with sound appeared.
4134 days A242 Unsportsmanlike Contact is irrelevant (if there is any). Unsportsmanlike foul cannot be called, because there is defender between the player with the ball and the basket. No call would have been the best call.
4135 days B83 Travel-Dribble The ball is bounced high but it does not come to rest in the player's hand that's why it is legal play. Travelling violation cannot be occurred when the ball is not in a player's hands. Legal.
4135 days A240 Screening The player that sets the screen respects the element of time and distance of his opponent in motion when contact occurs and he is stable. Screen is legal. No call is the best call.
4135 days A241 Verticality Offensive player fakes a shot, and his opponent jumps up. He could fall back to floor to a place where he would not contact anyone. It is the offensive player that intends to contact his opponent in order to make the officials call a defensive foul. There is no need for intervention by the officials, no call is the best call.
4143 days A237 Screening Offensive player commits a foul when using his hip. Defender flops a bit though, but still the screen is illegal.
4143 days A238 Act of shooting Question is whether shooter has started the act of shooting when foul occurs. That the ball leaves the shooter's hand matters only when offensive team commits a foul. Contact takes longer here. And still applies when player starts shooting. The right call is that 3 points count, and ball stays with white team.
4144 days A235 Unsportsmanlike Defensive player does not intend to get the ball, he pulls back opponent that would be about to score after passing by. UNSPORTSMANLIKE foul.
4144 days B82 Goaltending-Interference The defender touches the ball in its upward flight before the ball touches the backboard. Legal play.
4144 days C43 Game control Coach is not allowed to behave like this. Kicking the ball deserves to call a technical foul.
4150 days A233 Charge-Block Defensive player establishes legal guarding position on time inside the semi-circle. If he was outside, OFFENSIVE foul should be called, but this way NO CALL is the best call. (Other kind of rules apply in NBA.)
4150 days A234 Unsportsmanlike Defensive player does not intend to get the ball, and he commits a tough foul. It is an UNSPORTSMANLIKE foul.
4150 days A232 Screening The player that sets the screen does not respect the element of time and distance of his opponent in motion when contact occurs. Illegal screen is the right call.
4154 days A230 Acting Defensive player falls down after an irrelevant contact. He also uses his own arms to push himself away opponent. No call is the best call, and a warning to team (player and coach) should be given.
4154 days A231 Acting White 13 hangs into his opponent's arms and try to fool officials that foul was committed against him. It is an OFFENSIVE foul.
4154 days C42 Responsibility-Competence 3PO Triple call. Lead is the odd man, he shall not call, because he cannot see the space between players. Player started the act of shooting, so basket counts.
4155 days A229 Double foul Both players intend to make a contact with each other. DOUBLE foul is the best call.
4155 days B81 3, 5, 8, 24 seconds It is legal play because the player goes out of the restricted area when 3 seconds are passed.
4155 days A228 Charge-Block Defensive player establishes the legal guarding position, offensive player uses his arm as well. It is am OFFENSIVE foul. Although there is no need for an official warning to player and coach, it is reasonable to inform him to stop doing it.
4157 days C41 Positioning 3PO Bad positioning by lead. He is only guessing. He should have moved to the other side of the basket, but since he did not, he should have trusted his colleague.
4157 days A227 Post play Red player pulls his opponent down under the basket. Foul has to be called. As red team does not owe the ball when foul occurs, no penalties should be given. Game shall go on with thrown-in for white, from sideline.
4157 days D14 Correctable errors It is not the right player that shoots the free throws. According to the rules the first free throw should be cancelled, and the ball should be given to the other team. The aim of the rules is to punish if a team wants to have a different player to shoot penalties, by misleading the referees. It's obvious that this situation is not like that. Because there are two situations where fouls could be called, the player stays on the free-throw line, because he thinks the foul was called for his benefit. The referees make the right steps by cancelling the free-throws, and asking the right player to have the shots.
4160 days A225 Advantage-Disadvantage White player intends to help the ball stay in-bounds, but red 8 pushes him from his back. This small touch puts offensive player to a disadvantage, so foul against red 8 has to be called.
4160 days B80 Goaltending-Interference Violation does not occur in the last or only free throw. Goaltending and basket counts 1 point.
4160 days A226 Advantage-Disadvantage Offensive player falls down because of white 5's leg. Although it is not intentional, foul shall be called, because it puts his opponent into a disadvantage.
4161 days A224 Unsportsmanlike It is difficult to decide. Defensive player is eager to hit the ball, but he reaches only opponent's wrist. It only seems to be tough, because of player's falling down, but it is actually not that relevant. Normal personal foul is the right call, but it can depend on the atmosphere of the game, unsportsmanlike fouls also can be called.
4162 days B79 Out of bounds The ball touches the floor within the boundary and the player does not touch the ball while he is out of bounds. Legal play.
4162 days A220 Double foul Red player holds opponent's and force him to let him go to the basket. Defensive player pulls him to the floor almost at the same time. The best call is DOUBLE foul.
4162 days A222 Charge-Block Defensive player establishes the legal guarding position, but he stands of the line of the no charge semi circle, so its rules cannot apply here. OFFENSIVE foul is the right call, and at the moment of the contact offensive player still had the ball in his hands, so goal does not count.

4165 days A215 Act of shooting Player has started the act of shooting when contact occurs. Goal counts and a penalty shot should be given.
4165 days A216 Act of shooting As we can see in slow motion the contact happens when offensive player starts holding the ball. It is difficult to decide if he started the act of shooting or not. When it is such a border-line case then we should put that team into advantage that did not commit a foul: goal counts and one penalty should be given.
4165 days A217 Act of shooting Foul occurs when player dribbles the ball. The act of shooting starts only after it. Goal does not count and throw-in comes at sideline (expect for the case when team is in penalty situation.)

4169 days A213 Game control A normal foul against black 8, and a disqualifying foul against white 11 (hit) should have been called. Both officials should have seen the fouls.

4169 days A211 Use of hands Defensive player blocks his opponent. Nothing should have been called.
4170 days A209 Charge-Block It is a very good example for applying the rules of no charge semi circle. When defensive player reaches the line of the semi circle, then OFFENSIVE foul should be called (it cannot be seen clearly), but in case he stands inside the semi circle no call is the best call.

4235 days A183 Unsportsmanlike White 5 pushes his opponent without intending to get the ball. It is an UNSPORTSMANLIKE foul. Act of shooting has not started when push occurs, because offensive player just starts dribbling then. The right call is goal does not count and 2 penalties plus ball from half court. In case of not calling anything for the push, the second contact should have been called as a foul, at least.

4284 days D11 The blue 11's personal foul is obvious. The reaction of the player who is on the floor pushing down the other player of himself is understandable, no call against is needed. They got into an argument with each other, so both of them could get a technical foul. Many times it helps the referees to keep the game under control. But it is not good that all the three referees get involved in the separation of the players.
