I've been at 2 games now where something very similar has happened and we're calling this 'ball-to-hand'.

IMO, on this short clip alone, that would be handling based on the player having his arms in an unnatural position trying to make himself bigger and the ball making contact with his arm/hand.
Now, the only way that I may not call that handling is if he were pushed which caused his arms to move outward from his body and then the ball making contact.
