Toronto Raptors coach Darko Rajakovic had a lot of bad things to say about the officiating after the LA Lakers shot 23 points in the last quarter last Tuesday. According to NBA news reports, Anthony Davis scored 20 out of 41 points in the final quarter. Also, he made all 11 free throws in the fourth quarter without missing a single one. Davis attempted 14 out of the Lakers’ 36 FTs, while the Raptors attempted 13.
Davis led the Lakers down the stretch by Davis. He had 13 points and 11 rebounds. He scored 10 points in the last minute of the game. Also, it included eight free throws. He blocked Barnes, capping off an outstanding effort.
According to bookie pay per head sources, it was a career-high for the Lakers big man who attempted fourteen free throws.
Raptors Coach Darko Rajakovic is Furious about the Officiating
Officials never gave the Raptors an opportunity, according to Rajakovic. The Raptors recently got Immanuel Quickley and RJ Barrett in exchange for OG Anunoby. Also, they won two of their last five games. In the game against the Lakers, Barnes scored 26 points. Also, Pascal Siakam added 25. Quickley had 21 points and four 3-pointers. However, referees called a flagrant foul on Quickley after he elbowed Cam Reddish in the face. He fouled out with less than four minutes left in the game. In addition, Barrett finished with 23 points.
Barnes’ 3-pointer to tie the game was nullified due to Barrett’s offensive penalty. The first three periods saw a balanced distribution of free throws between Lakers (13) and Toronto (11). Lakers’ total exploded only in the fourth quarter.
According to pay per head services providers, the NBA is expected to punish Rajakovic a pretty penny for his tirade. However, his players seemed to enjoy his fiery rhetoric.
