[QUOTE]Am I the only guy who during the last 2 minutes thought about Game 7 two years ago. Firstly, Blake's pass to Kobe that Westbrook tried to intercept showed in the replay his hand did not touch the ball but he did disrupt Kobe's view & it went through Kobe's hands. But Refs gave ball to Lakers, I think. Why wasn't there a replay video in last 2 minutes ? LA was still ahead by 2 pts I think with about a min to go. But when I think of Artest, Kobe & Blake 3 pts misses while wide open which could have been daggers, I recall, luck or skill, that Fisher & Artest made a couple of 3s against us in last closing minutes that were daggers. Fisher was to be expected, but Artest...UGH !!! Want the next 2 games for Celtics for PP to heal, although he says his knees are fine, and for PP, KG & Allen to rest.

I always think of game 7 two years ago during Laker games that they win with the help of the zebra's... luckily they lost last night.
It wasn't the last two minutes last night tho that reminded me of '10... yes the refs were quick to say that ball Kobe touched last was LA's, but they checked the video and got it right.... otherwise it was careless TO's, old legs and missed 3's that lost the game for LA... not the refs
However, there was a stretch in the 2nd quarter where the refs slowed down the game and gave LA break after break, when it appeared the Thunder were going to turn a 3-5 point lead into double dig's by halftime... that reminded me SO MUCH of '10 it was sickening.
I doubt anything will EVER be as bad as that 4th quarter robbery again, considering the stakes, the volume of blown calls over so many minutes, and the complete opposite way that game was called for 3 quarters... but the phantom fouls on Perk, Collison and Sepholosha, all in a row... were pitiful examples of either favortism/league agenda to extend the series... or guys incredibly inept at their jobs.
