Well, the refs have “taken control” of game 7. Calling phantom fouls, missing obvious calls, being inconsistent with moving screens and hand checks. This is such a poor officiating job, that I’m not even going to mention specific instances, since it’s not really needed. Just watch ANY 5 minutes of the game, and you’ll see what I’m talking about. So far, Kobe Bryant is pretty “off”, and the Los Angeles Lakers are down by 4, 57 – 53. The Boston Celtics just got called for a 24 seconds violation at the end of the 3rd quarter (good work), and the Lakers will have a chance to take the last shot….or to maybe turn the ball over and give the Celtics the last shot.
Ron Artest just stole the ball, drove the length of the court, got hammered by Kevin Garnett, and the refs called it out of bounds. Then Ray Allen puts his shoulder right into a standing Kobe Bryant, and the refs call a blocking foul.
Pau Gasol travels with 1:29 seconds left in the game and the refs miss it, making it a 6 point game.
Well, the teams played a fantastic game. Congratulations to the Los Angeles Lakers.
