Indiana Pacers fans are still upset about the missed goaltending call at the end of Game 5 that turned into a LeBron James buzzer-beater, and they want to make sure it doesn’t happen again to them on their home court in Game 6.
On the eve of the win-or-go-home game for the Pacers, Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett went ahead and outlawed goaltending in Indianapolis, for every player on both teams.
Hogsett also declared Friday “Blue and Gold Day” in Indianapolis and asked Pacers fans to rock as much gear as possible to show support for the club.
The Indy Fuel, the city’s ECHL club, had some fun with the announcement and reminded the mayor it might not work out for them.
However, he quickly cleared up that it was just for basketball and not for them.
