Referees missed a potential game-changing foul call in the Detroit Pistons’ win over the Toronto Raptors yesterday, the National Basketball Association said Monday afternoon. In its daily Last 2 Minute Report, a review of the final two minutes of games decided by five points or less, the NBA says Marcus Morris should have been called for a shooting foul on with 3.6 seconds left. According to the report, “Morris grabs (DeMar) DeRozan’s jersey and makes contact to the body that affects his jump shot attempt.”
“That’s what I’m saying – this stuff is crazy,” Van Gundy said of media reports. “And I’m not going to be the guy to step up and say, ‘No, no, no. None of these guys are available.’ Because I’m not lying to anybody. “Here’s the thing: who do you think people call about? Are interested in? Your best players? Yeah. That’s who people call about. Yes, there’s always discussions about Reggie and Andre (Drummond) and Marcus (Morris) and Tobias (Harris) and Stanley (Johnson) and Jon Leuer. Always, yes. People call about them. There’s discussions about those guys on a daily basis. That’s who people call about. They are interested in those guys. So yes, those discussions take place all the time.”
Me: So you’ve been comfortable defensively when you’ve been at the four? TH: Yeah. Between me and Marcus, we pretty much split the positions at three and four. And the three is the about same thing as the two. In our offense, the three is basically the flip of the two. Defensively, I’m comfortable playing the four. I’ve played a lot of fours already so far, and a lot of threes, too. The biggest thing is the change of calls when you go from three to four, but at the same time, it’s been good for us.
Erik Hood, who said he was attacked by NBA players Marcus and Markieff Morris after a youth basketball game in Phoenix in 2015, has filed a civil lawsuit against the twins and three other men. The Morris twins, former Phoenix Suns players, and three other defendants are accused of beating up Hood outside a youth basketball tournament in central Phoenix. The criminal case is still underway in Maricopa County Superior Court, and the civil lawsuit was filed there on Tuesday. Hood, of Maricopa County, is suing the five defendants for conspiracy, battery and assault and is seeking actual damages, including pain and suffering, and punitive damages from them, according to a complaint document filed by attorneys William Richards and Nicole Davis.

The Detroit Pistons joined other NBA teams last week when they locked arms on the court at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn to protest incidents of police violence and racial injustice. And it’s likely the gesture will continue Monday night when the Pistons host the San Antonio Spurs in their preseason home opener at The Palace of Auburn Hills (7:30 p.m., Pistons.com). “It definitely showed unity to the league,” Pistons forward Marcus Morris said. “I think it’s more a league-wide thing. Most of the team wanted to do it, so we got involved. “Personally, I don’t think that’s enough, but you’ve got to start somewhere.”
