    Officiating

    I attended the Celtics/Hawks game in person. I sat about 10 rows up from the court. This was easily the worst officiated game I've ever been to live. It appeared the referees wanted the Hawks to win. I can understand one bad call. I can maybe even understand two bad calls. But four in a row? And in the final possessions of overtime, no less? Even if the calls were correct (they weren't), referees usually don't blow the whistle on ticky-tack stuff in crunchtime. It has to be blatant to earn a call.

    Contrast this game to the one in Miami. Much to my surprise, yesterday's game seemed unbiased and very well-officiated. Too often we only complain about the poorly officiated games without giving credit for the well-officiated ones.

    Some referees actually do a decent to good job. That was the case in Celtics/Heat. It was not the case in Celtics/Hawks. Let's hope we don't get the latter guys again in the playoffs.

    You must have been within earshot of Tommy Heinsohn. As a die hard, bleeding green Celtic fan, Tommy is an embarassment to the team with his whining on the air. It is really no wonder that the majority of Celtics fans always use the referrees as an excuse. I stay classy and I wish other Celtic fans would do the same.

    Snoopsnizzle,
    In basketball, in a close game every ref's mistake has very high probability to decide the outcome of the game. Last nigh was a classic example. Thankfully Atl couldn't take advantage of those mistakes.
    As for your comment about classy fans - even the most classy fans shouldn't be blind and call spade a spade.

    Steimsma's push against Josh Smith was an offensive foul.
    Paul did smack Smith in the face, but that should have been a no call as Paul was already past Smith. Smith's exaggerated the foul, which forced the referee to make a call.

    Pierce and Rondo exaggerate fouls all the time.

    sure, you could call both fouls, but if you wanted to be that picky I'm sure you could have also called a foul on smith coming up and grabbing. I don't think either foul would be called 99 percent of the time.

    I guess I need to look at the box score and see what the overall foul count looked like.

    Boston's players and Doc ride and ride the referees all game long.
    They are not going to get the benefit of the doubt on 50/50 calls.

    I think most teams and coaches get on the officials.

    Cousins and Perkins lead the league in techs with 9 each.
    Bryant has 9 and Bynum 7

    Rondo leads BOS with 7

    Steamer on Smith was an absolute no call. Not even close. Pierce on Smith is not an offensive foul He already blew by Smith and it was incidental contact. He did not hit Smith to get open. You have to be kidding me. Blake shoves guys in the chest or head  or back with his forearm or stiff arms them to keep them off him for blatant offense fouls on dunks and gets no whistles.

    Agree that the game was very poorly officiated.  I will be very happy when Stern retires, which I understand will be in 2014.  It wil be interesting to see if the officiating improves.   At least, I am hoping that it does.

    It's hard to believe that you really believe the referees are corrupt and wanted Atlanta to win. Both Steimsma and Pierce made contact with the defensive players head. Fouls were called.

    Are all of the referees against Boston? Is it a league wide mandate for referees to help Boston's opponents?

    Funny never seen those calls go against the Fakers.  Imagine how exciting the NBA would be if everyone learned that Kome "pivot slide" move he has perfected.  You know the one where both feet are stationed near the free throw line and by the time he finishes sliding his pivot foot he is behind the three point line.  Very impressive that he hides it from the officials.

    Kobe rides the officials all game.
    They don't love him or the Lakers.

    Watch Ray Allen when he takes a 3 pointer on the run.
    He takes 3 or 4 small steps before he shoots it.

    The next time Mike Gorman disagrees with Tommy will be the first time.
    He is completely afraid to speak up.

    The TV guys are bad.  The radio guys are okay, but Mychal Thompson is the Tommy Heinsohn of LA!!  A huge homer!  But, of course, Tommy and Mychal are PAID by the team to BE homers, so we have to take that into account!!
