After the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks played a very controversial game, everybody had something to say, especially Julius Randle, who was furious after the refs called travel in the last active play of the game. Randle had to be held back by his teammates since he was visibly upset with the final development of the game.

NBA fans reacted to that, blasting the officials for their performance during the game and justifying Randle's anger. The Knicks were really close to beating the Nets and it's a shame that these decisions prevented them from at least sending the game to overtime.

Besides the fans, one player reacted to the whole situation. Damian Lillard is one of the most active NBA stars on social media and he didn't miss the chance to drop a simple question about how things were handled during that sequence. Dame was extremely curious about why the refs gave the ball back to the Nets if it was a block.

"Ky blocked Julius Randle shot attempt. Why did Scott foster blow his whistle and give the nets the ball?"

NBA Twitter tried to explain why they made that call while others just blasted the refs for not being consistent and call some plays for some players while others get a green light.

These situations will always bring controversy to the table and this is definitely not the exception. The Knicks demonstrated they can go against anybody and put pressure on them but it's a shame the game ended this way.
