I can only conclude that Ron Mexico is referring to an entirely different video than the rest of us are seeing, because his posts are making no sense.

No there is a subtle but very obvious hook that you can't see in video or good pictures and it was only called so late because it was so very obvious. DM gained such a huge advantage with this move that Ben had to grab him with both arms and only after DM had taken another dribble and made another basketball move and put up a shot was it clear a violation needed to be called.

Or they thought the hook was on the spin move and were incorrect.

You forgot about how the move was so shockingly egregious that it took a few seconds for the ref to compose himself and call the foul.

Yes, the whistle was delayed. I dont really care if its right. It could have been a no call except for the fact that Simmons pinned Mitchells arm forcing the ref to make a call. Which is a smart move by Simmons. If the ref is forced to make a call he is going to call the first foul which is Mitchell. I uploaded the last 2 minute report into my video analysis software I use for work, unfortunately the quality isnt great. But here is the picture of the first contact. It clearly shows Simmons arm up in the air and Mitchells arm reaches all the way around Simmons.

I will also the video of it.. It is the first contact and by the NBA definition a hook. It was a bad play from Mitchell among many at the end of this game. I think Mitchell is great at the end of games in his career though and he will figure it out. He will be clutch in the finals this year.

I posted an image of Mitchell's arm being pinned before that screenshot.

That's the same ref who forgot he had legs.

Not possible, that is the first contact with Simmons, watch the video. His arm does come down right after that and pin him, but that is after the hook.
