NOTE: Every baller wants to be on the floor for Crunch Time; the last 4 minutes of a close game. That’s also the critical part of the game for a referee. Hopefully you haven’t kicked any calls during the game. At the 4 minute mark make sure everyone is on the same page. A wrong call now can ruin a great game. Don’t let it happen to you!
