Game 6 referee assignments

The officiating issues have taken a back seat to the play on the court in the last few games of the NBA Finals, but the refs could easily find themselves back in the spotlight if there are any controversial calls, or non-calls, in Game 6 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Tonight’s referee assignments: Monty McCutchen, Joe DeRosa, and Ken Mauer.

McCutchen and Mauer worked Game 2 (with Mike Callahan) of the Finals in LA, which resulted in a 103-94 Celtics victory. DeRosa worked Game 1 (with Joe Crawford and Derrick Stafford), which resulted in a Lakers 102-89.
