Erik Spoelstra called out the officiating after his Miami Heat lost a tight one against the Golden State Warriors 120-118 on Sunday night.

Spoelstra, who rarely talks about the referees, began talking about the free throw disparity and blown calls by the officials when meeting with the media.

One of the plays Spoelstra cited was this double dribble by Kevin Durant with the game tied at 118 and under 10 seconds left. Rather than the ball going to Miami as it should have, Durant missed his three and DeMarcus Cousins got the rebound and was fouled. Cousins made both free throws to give the Warriors their two-point lead — solidifying the game.

Joel Embiid offers profane criticism of referees after Sixers’ loss to Celtics Feb. 13-- ESPN (@espn) February 13, 2019 “The referees [expletive] suck," he said before getting up to leave. The league has no problem handing out fines for public criticism of the officials, even when the criticism isn’t as blatant or pointed. But, as NBA commissioner Adam Silver said last season while in London, coincidentally for a Sixers-Celtics contest, the fines don’t mean much when they are levied against multi-millionaires. “We recognize that the fines -- while nobody likes to lose the money -- in many ways are more symbolic than anything else when you have players as wealthy as they are,” Silver said.

Spoelstra was sure to clarify that the officials were not the reason they lost and said he did not want to be fined, but he still got his point across. Between the missed double-dribble call and the 26-8 difference in free throws, he had every right to be upset.
