Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks won Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday, ending the team’s 50-year championship drought, thanks to the “Greek Freak”’s perfect 50 points and 14 Performance of 1 rebounds and 5 blocks.
Although Milwaukee’s victory in the finals was a matter of course, some people on Twitter loudly doubted whether the referee had anything to do with the final result.Although there are indeed some suspicious calls-just ask Bobby Portis -They don’t seem to be heavily biased towards one team over the other.
but Scott Foster’s long history of cooperation with Suns point guard Chris Paul Eliminates any benefits that some observers suspect. With the Suns losing on Tuesday, Paul (26 points, 5 assists, 2 rebounds) fell behind 0-13 in the playoffs where Foster was the referee.
Someone even saw Foster and Paul talking before the start of the 6th game:
It is worth mentioning that in the 105-98 loss of Phoenix, Paul and Deandre Ayton each had five fouls; Mikal Bridges and Devin Booker each had four fouls, and Jack Lauder had Three fouls. In contrast, none of Milwaukee’s starting players fouled more than three times. Chris Middleton led the team with three points.
Strangely, Portis may have prevented Paul’s technical foul with about 10 minutes left in the game. After the official ruling that the Suns player’s ball went out of bounds, Paul appeared to be ready to face Foster (this decision was later revoked after review):
The following are examples of Twitter users who filmed Foster before, during, and after the game:
So now we can see that Scott Foster just gave Giannis every call imaginable…He is already the best player in the series without the blatant help sometimes… ….
