Late in the Milwaukee Bucks – Brooklyn Nets game Khris Middleton was chasing down Bruce Brown after a stolen ball. Brown slows down as he’s preparing to go up for a breakaway dunk, so Khris Middleton speeds up to foul him. Middleton grabs Brown’s left arm and Brown takes a hard fall.

A foul? Yes. A hard foul? Yes. A Flagrant 1? Maybe. A Flagrant 2 and ejection? Ja Morant Said it best:

Even Reggie Miller was calling it ridiculous. That sequence ultimately changed the momentum of the game and the calls continued to go the Nets’ way as Jrue was stripped and fouled. The play was challenged and reversed in favor of the Nets.
The only problem for the Nets? The game wasn’t even close to over. After Giannis hits a ridiculous 3 to tie the game at 110, it would eventually go to overtime. In overtime Giannis would hit two clutch free throws late to win the game 120-119. An incredible game (besides the refs).
