‘Worst Call of the Season’ Prompts Outrage


The Detroit Pistons have been robbed of a rare win and they are furious about it.

Detroit was up by one with seconds remaining when Knicks guards Donte DiVincenzo and Jalen Brunson crashed into Pistons forward Ausar Thompson. The collision caused New York to regain the ball, as Brunson passed to Josh Hart for the game-winning basket.

Postgame, Pistons coach Monty Williams was absolutely livid.

“The absolute worst call of the season,” Williams said right after the game. “No call, and enough’s enough. We’ve done it the right way. We’ve called the league. We’ve sent in clips. We’re sick of hearing the same stuff over and over again.

“We had a chance to win the game, and a guy dove into Ausur’s legs and there was a no-call. That’s an abomination. You cannot miss that in an NBA game. Period. And I’m tired of talking about it. I’m tired of my guys asking, ‘What more can we do, Coach?’ That situation is Exhibit A to what we’ve been dealing with all season long, and enough’s enough.”

“You cannot dive into a guy’s legs in a big-time game like that and there be a no-call,” he continued. “It’s ridiculous, and we’re tired of it. We just want a fair game called. Period. And I’ve got nothing else to say. We want a fair game, and that was not fair.”

Williams then stormed straight back out of the media room before any reporters were present to ask questions.

Crew chief James Williams later confessed in a pool report that a foul should have been called.

And just like that, a nightmarish season gets even worse for the Detroit Pistons.
