Shai Gilgeous-Alexander displayed his dominance in overtime, scoring 10 vital points that decisively sealed a 130-123 triumph for OKC, pushing his total to an impressive 40 points.
In the aftermath of the defeat, Warriors fans are deeply engaged in post-game reflections, sparking discussions and speculation.
A standout moment occurred in the closing phase of the match, as SGA executed a remarkable, karate-inspired kick that made contact with Wiggins’ groin. Despite a thorough review, the referees stood firm on their decision of no foul.

Some Warriors supporters hypothesize that had the officials called a foul, the game’s trajectory might have taken a different course.

This call really hurt. Wiggins absorbs contact with his chest but they still called the foul on the bump https://t.co/QikBCtMhvk

Bookmark this as exactly what is wrong w NBA officiating.
This is textbook defense and Shai (a major foul baiter fyi) creates 100%of the contact.
Like what is Wiggins supposed to do? https://t.co/ytxfIy2rbM
