I do not have a video.
I wouldn't say it was a push off. It was dribbling into a sliding defender in front of them. Basically once they got within 1 foot of each other, the elbow went up and was the leading the dribbller into the defender. I understand there can be body contact in these spots too that cause confusion for the refs to figure out.

So just to clarify, if the offense intiates the contact it's offensive, if the defense does it's defensive.
And the offensive player can never initiate contact to "protect" a dribble?

Thanks for the quick response. I know trying to figure out something you didnt see is very complicated.
