I don't think it's "definitely a block" as some have said. In the moment, and my first instinct, I almost certainly would have called a block based on the overhead view, but I'm not sure that would be right. I think there is room for healthy debate here.

At 0:17, W5's left foot had beaten B23 to the spot. W5's left leg was within the width of his torso (are we initially being fooled by his right foot being left outside his shoulder width to the right?). B23 never gets his head and shoulders around W5's torso when contact occurs. I may have talked myself into PC.

Anybody else think this may be PC, and why?

I agree with you that is not a cut-n-dry block. I do not see the defender moving into A1, I see lateral movement by the defender. Who got to the spot first, and was LGP ever established?

Yeah but he doesn't hold it and doesn't do anything to sell that he had the first foul.

I see it the way you do, but I don't think he established LGP because he wasn't in the path of the dribbler.

Warriors fan...and watching the warriors broadcast. Along with the local announcers I thought that it probably should have been a block call. It was close but if you start calling charges on those you are going to get way too many players jumping in the paths of the offensive players.

He's putting us on, right.
