Default Unpopular Opinion: the Warriors undercut on closeouts

CPFlop and Harden have entire careers of flailing so it's less obvious, but it looked like the Warriors committed some legit undercutting fouls on some of those shots.

Both plays the shooter extended their legs or hip and initiated contact.

Same with this one. I mean the Warriors should and will win this series, but this one is also a pretty easy call.

No its not. Throwing your hip into someone isnt forward momentum. You have the IQ of an autistic raccoon.

You got one right. Gratz. No forward momentum.

And yet, Livingston still gets away with being too close to him.

The official rulebook has a description and video that shows the shooter is allowed space in front of them to land.

Everyone who has ever played the game knows this.

I got a technical in AAU ball because I used to let shooters land on my feet, and rolled a kids ankle once... like the Warriors are taught (Kawhi Leonard anyone?).

It's a foul every day of the week and itll be called in Game 2.

Notice how he steps in to contest, turns to "watch the shot", and takes another step into Hardens landing zone with his back turned like he didnt mean to. Thats MY trick.

That's a foul, and it's dangerous.

There were a couple times on Klay's closeouts that should've been called fouls.
