Just watched again the video highlights of Cuse game. Salt got fouled hard

on his dunk by #11 Brissett (with the body). I can't imagine another player in the league who would not have gotten a foul call on that.

I think that Brissett fouled Dre on an earlier layup, but I may well be wrong on that. It is much harder to tell.

But Dre was definitely fouled on his breakaway layup (before the shot) by #13 Chukwu. Dre was so clever on that play; he approached the basket from the left & Chukwu tried to move into his path. Dre moved to his right & drew contact around the foul line (before he shot). One might say that it was a good no-call. However, to me a foul is a foul & the ref should have called that one. (Chukwu, like many big men, looked awkward running in the open court there & Dre used his advantage in mobility well.) BTW, I loved how Dre stripped Battle of the ball on that play.

BTW, Dre looked to me like the key player in the highlights. He was able to get the ball in that crucial spot at the foul line & he clearly knew what to do with the ball, whether shoot, drive or pass. And he looked confident doing it.
