I think you are right on this one Bison 137. Coaches and assistants should have been yelling time out!

In this situation, coaches normally will always tell the ref between shots that they want an immediate timeout if the shot is missed and they control the rebound. That way there is no risk that the ref doesn’t see/hear you trying to call timeout. Also coaches normally will also tell their players they want an immediate timeout. Sounds very much like Reed did neither. Probably was just assuming Vlad would make the second shot and then he could call a timeout at his leisure.
