Memphis Grizzlies fans may be talking about this dubious call for a while. The Clippers’ offensive possession was going nowhere when Tony Allen deflected a pass back to Chris Paul away. Allen ran over to save the ball out of bounds, grabbed it for a split second, then threw it back inbounds over his head right to Blake Griffin.
The referees, in a controversial call, decided that Allen had possession, so the shot clock was allowed to reset. This did not make Allen happy.
Nick Young eventually drew a foul for the Clippers and hit two free-throws, so the call was costly. I can understand Allen’s frustration.
