Intentional Fouls were a Point of Emphasis by the rules committee in both the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons. Below is the text from the POE. I bolded the areas that apply to yesterday's play.

The committee is concerned about the lack of enforcement for intentional fouls during any part of the game but especially at the end of a game.
Anytime during the game, acts that neutralize an opponent’s obvious advantageous position and must be deemed intentional include:

1. Excessive contact on any player attempting a try
2. Grabbing or shoving a player from behind when an easy basket may be scored
3. Grabbing and holding a player from behind or away from the ball

As indicated, the official attempted to talk him out of the action, to no avail.
