The committee determined that in the playoff quarterfinal series between Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Tel Aviv, the referees made the right decision that they did not whistle an offense in favor of Hapoel Tel Aviv during the last game of the series, and the referees in the second game made the right decision when they sent off Scotty Wilbkin.
On the other hand, in the Final Four games, a number of mistakes were found. In the first semi-final match between Rishon Lezion and Hapoel Jerusalem, the committee determined that a mistake was made in setting the clock time in the last second before the last and winning shot of Adam Ariel. In the second semifinal game, a “serious” mistake was made as the committee defined that no offense was blown to win Yiftach Ziv from Gilboa Galil in the closing seconds and in the final game, a whistle was blown for a foul on Daryl Monroe, the fifth and decisive offense in the final moments of the game.
“The committee praised the conduct of the referees and the entire system during the Corona Games – a difficult and challenging period that created limitations and difficulties for all participants and involved,” the committee said in a statement. And I wish everyone a “normal” and successful season next season. “
