Smart had criticized the referees after losing to the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night after saying they had given him an "excuse" to leave MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo in the game.

In the final minutes, the Greek attacked the zone, Smart got in his way and the referees initially decided on Charge , which would have made Giannis collect his sixth foul and put him on the bench. However, after in-depth advice, they decided that Smart was out of position in time and changed their decision to a blocking foul against the Celtics player.

It's in the bag: Even whistles now are safer at NBA restart

  It's in the bag: Even whistles now are safer at NBA restart LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The NBA believes it has considered possible way they can make the restarted season as safe as possible for everyone involved. That even included a plan to contain referee spittle. Referees at the NBA and WNBA restarts are using the same whistles as they always have — albeit with one subtle but important addition. A small black bag is being slipped onto each whistle, designed to collect any spittle that might emanate from a referee’s mouth and through the device itself when being used during play.

"I wish I had gotten a better one," said Smart when asked if he got an explanation for the call. "The excuse was that I was too late to pull the batch," he added, immediately shuffling his own view of things. "Honestly, I think we all know what it was really about. It was Giannis' sixth foul. They (the referees) didn't want to see him outside. Let's just call the kid by name."

NBA: Giannis decides game against the Boston Celtics

Due to the decision of the referees, instead of possession for the Celtics with 90 seconds on the clock, the score of 107: 107 was two points plus a free throw for Antetokounmpo. Giannis converted from the line, in return Jaylen Brown awarded a three, before Khris Middleton from Downtown made the preliminary decision (113: 107).

Antetokounmpo himself did not want to know about the wrong decision by the referees after the game. In his opinion, Smart was still on the move trying to pull the batch. "First of all, that's his opinion," said the Greek. "But I talked to him about it and at the end of the day I respect him as a player."
