    Post In The Moment

    sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-ball-dont-lie/nba-creates-reggie-miller-rule-order-punish-shooters-161207912--nba.html

    "The problem is that this rule was already in place. It's what is called an "offensive foul," and referees have had the go-ahead for years to whistle offensive players that strike a defender after moving into the defender's designated space. You don't see as many kicking calls over the course of a season as you see, say, a drive and crash into a well-positioned charge-taker; but the calls have been made in the past. It comes down to, as has been the case for years on the other end with flopping, the NBA referees getting it right in the moment. "

    How is "in the moment" different from "at the moment"?

    Default Re: In The Moment

    "At the moment" means "now" or a period of time that includes now, e.g. "I'm very stressed at the moment."
    "At that moment" is possible, but the writer used "in the moment" means at that point in time, including the atmosphere, emotion, tension, pressure etc. of that moment, because in those situations there is a lot of pressure to make a call that can make or break a game or a season.
