Baby’s charge streak comes to an end

RedsArmyAdmin November 23, 2010 Uncategorized 9 Comments



 

Glen Davis, who has taken 20 charges so far this season, went into last night's game having taken a charge in every game of the season.

With 7:38 to play, it looked like he might have kept his streak alive.  Jamal Crawford drove the lane and Baby was there outside the restricted area in time.  But it was called a block.  It's a borderline call.  Taking a look at the rule book, this is what the debate is over:

A defensive player must allow an alighted player the distance to land and then stop or change direction when the offensive player is outside the lower defensive box.  

at :04, Jamal starts to jump.  As he's starting to jump, Baby is still sliding over.  So it would seem that, by rule, Baby was just a half-slide late and that the block was a good call.  

But it's really close… and we've all probably seen that call go the other way.  So I'll put it out to you:  Was this a charge, or a block?

    He seemed set to me. Charge.

    Think in a close game, that would be called a charge. Since the Hawks were getting blown out so badly, the refs probably just gave it to them.

    He seemed set to be. Should have been a charge.

    unfortunately comcast didn’t give us a very definitive replay but from that one I thought CHARGE.

    Thanks for the kind words… It is, as they say, a labor of love. As long as Celtic fans like them I will continue to do it.
