It is very important to know the rules for sports. For example, in basketball if you have the ball you can dribble it and pass it to another player. When you see the ref blow the whistle, it means that he is stopping the action.
When you see a referee pointing their hand towards a player, that means that they got a technical foul. This is generally for any of these reasons:
The player was not allowed to play the ball.
The player hit the ball with their fist/punch.
The player blocked an opponent with a fist/punch.
The player pushed an opponent.
The player was fouled.
In the last point, the referee is telling the players to stop blocking each other and be more considerate.
