    Refs are AWFUL!

    I say this and they have probably helped my Lakers this game (hurt them a little last game). But regardless they have been pathetic. It's hard to watch sometimes. Phantom falls being called, missed out of bounds calls, it's just horrible. How do these guys have jobs?

    Is this the first time you've realized this? It's one of the many reasons why I do not watch NBA basketball.

    Crappy reffing is normal in the NBA, but it's worse than usual tonight.

    If you don't watch basketball than how would you know?

    And this isn't typical. I have (sadly) watched every Laker game this postseason. This series has been unusually bad

    Re: Refs are AWFUL!

    Im starting to believe more and more of what former NBA ref TIm Donaghy said in his interview with Bryant Gumbel on HBO's Reel Sports...On how the games are fixed by the league through the reffing...he also mentions how the refs push the higher market teams through the playoffs....

    Re: Refs are AWFUL!

    The end of game replays are just pathetic. i understand wanting to make the right calls, but this is just too much of a microscope. first two games had 500 fouls called...now this ruining any flow to the game whatsoever. Worst. NBA. Finals. Ever. Period. NHL stanley cup has been way better this year.

    I don't know that they are fixed. That would indicate they are trying to predetermine the winner. I don't think that's the case. I do think refs are extremely prejudiced and if you know the dynamics, you could bet and give yourself a huge advantage. To me Tim Donaughy has proven to be correct.

    On a side note, technicals need to be handed out for flopping.

    Lakers have 2 TO's this half and the Celtics only have 4 (I think 3 of the 6 are offensive fouls). Not a ton of mistakes

    I agree 100%. You have 2 great teams and so far through 3 games the refs calling of these games is the dominant headline.

    Agreed on the T's for flopping.

    You must not have watched the game....?

    19 TO's between two teams is pretty good. NBA average is 28 a game. So they were 9 better than the average.

    Was the game sloppy? Sure. But it was because of the refs inability to call things consistently all game. They have taken the best players out of the game 2 games in a row on phantom calls.
