NBA Playoffs 2014: Camera man takes out referee (GIF)


The Miami Heat are looking to close out the Brooklyn Nets tonight but they’re having a little bit of trouble in completing that task. But the Heat aren’t the only ones having a rough go of things tonight, as already we’ve had a referee get taken out by a camera man, which is just the type of sideshow antics we like to see at sports games.

For two grips of people that are so close to the action so often, you’d think they’d have their locations worked out. That doesn’t always happen, and we saw an example of that in Game 5 down in South Beach.

While the officials are having a rough night, the bigger deal is the Heat and how they’re having an even worse time falling over themselves. At least this official can blame the referees, the Heat can only blame themselves for their mistakes.
