VIDEO: Jayson Tatum surprisingly gets called for flagrant over fadeaway shot

Jayson Tatum, Celtics, Rockets

The match between the Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets is one of the most exciting games to watch on Saturday night. However, poor officiating has seemingly affected the game, as Jayson Tatum got a flagrant foul out of nowhere.

Tatum was trying to get a moving fadeaway shot during the start of the fourth quarter when he accidentally hit Eric Gordon in the testicles. What seemed like a natural action to many was considered a flagrant by the league officials.

NBA Official tried to explain the referee’s logic behind the call.

The movement of the leg is a natural part of the fadeaway shot, as it helped stabilize Tatum’s form. The fact that the officials didn’t see it that way frustrated Boston fans and analysts to no end.

Ric Bucher was one of the people who expressed their frustrations at the sub-par refereeing.

The Celtics ultimately fell short to the visitors, 111-110. However, Jayson Tatum’s alleged flagrant foul will be one that will be talked about by fans and analysts over the coming days.
