Kenny Atkinson pissed Tobias Harris wasn’t called for a foul on Jarrett Allen on final possession

Kenny Atkinson, Nets

Brooklyn Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson is not happy the referees didn’t call a foul on Philadelphia 76ers small forward Tobias Harris after he “wrapped” Jarrett Allen on the Nets’ final possession.

Allen lost the ball with the Nets down two. Ben Simmons stripped Allen and gave the ball to Harris, who hit two free-throws to put the game away.

Allen thought he was fouled as well on the play. He was rolling to the rim off a nice pass from Nets point guard D’Angelo Russell. That’s when Allen was surrounded by the Sixers in the paint.

Atkinson feels Allen was fouled by Harris, which led to the ball getting stripped. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the Nets head coach is fined for public criticism of the refs.

Brooklyn fought hard in Game 4, but their effort wasn’t enough. The Sixers now have a commanding 3-1 series lead and will look to eliminate the Nets in Game 5 in Philadelphia. Brooklyn won’t go down easy, but they’ll definitely be big underdogs since they’re on the road.

If this was the last home game for the team this season, it’s been a helluva season for Brooklyn, who made the postseason for the first time since 2015.
