And in the video, it’s so clear that there was none.”An offensive foul was called on Sen Anthony just as he was landing from his jump shot that would’ve put NorthPort ahead by three with 47 seconds left. Phoenix’s Justin Chua was apparently hit by Anthony’s hand.In the next sequence, FuelMasters gunslinger Matthew Wright was called for a charge for pulling Ryan Araña’s jersey on his way to the basket. The latter fouled Jason Perkins in the next possession which led to two made shots from the charity stripe enough for the Phoenix victory.“It’s a lose-lose situation so I’d rather not comment on it. I’m trusting the PBA office to look into it. I got to reserve my comment because nothing I can say can change anything and I don’t want to get in trouble,” Anthony told the press.ADVERTISEMENT Wright couldn’t help but feel for how such a call nearly decided the outcome of the game.“It was ugly. I honestly felt we deserved to lose that game,” he said. “I didn’t see a foul when Sean Anthony hit the shot. I guess when they called a foul on me, that was a makeup call.“But I feel like it was a very strange game, very inconsistent but someone had to win and I’m just happy that we were luck enough to win this game even without Stanley (Pringle) playing,” he added.Both Wright and Anthony felt that their respective teams could’ve made more effort to carve out a convincing win.“Highly disappointing but put that aside,” We had chances to pull away,” Anthony closed.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Urgent reply from Philippine ‍football chief ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woescenter_img US judge bars Trump’s health insurance rule for immigrants “Referees don’t decide the game,” he said. “Let the players win the game and lose the game.” PBA: Phoenix leans on defense anew to turn back North Port SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte MOST READ PDEA chief backs Robredo in revealing ‘discoveries’ on drug war Sean Anthony was whistled for an offensive foul in this three-point shot that could give Northport the lead with 47.8 seconds remaining in the game.
