That said, IMO, this was not the right call. Kozma had yet to reach the spot where the ball landed before he bailed on it. Could he have made the catch? Probably. Would it have been easy? Not really.
He was at most a step away from where it landed and he bailed out probably 2-3 seconds before it fell.
