Norris Cole was unable to fool the refs when he delivered a low blow to Indiana's David West in the final minutes of regulation in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.
As the Heat point guard used a screen and drove to his right, West switched and tried trapping him close to the sideline. That's when Cole lowered his left arm and hit West in the groin.
An official was standing on the baseline just a few feet away from the play and called an offensive foul on Cole.

It looks like the ref made the right call.
