Ref Commits A Foul, Calls It On Defender

In this video, Detroit’s Jones has the ball, and stops outside the 3-point line. A ref is running down the court to catch up with the action, and doesn’t stop in time, colliding with Jones. To cover his mistake, he calls a foul on the defender Billups, who was next to the Jones at the time.

The announcers don’t even mention the obvious bad call. They show the replay, and act as if nothing happened. I suppose they want to keep their network’s contract with the NBA. Can’t rag on the refs too much or David Stern will hunt you down.
