Tonight’s referee assignments


The officiating has come under much scrutiny in the Celtics-Magic series, and now we know the referees who will be working Game 6 at TD Garden.

According to the NBA’s website, which posts referee assignments each morning, Monty McCutchen, Mike Callahan and Ken Mauer (pictured at right arguing with Celtics coach Doc Rivers in Game 4 of the Celtics-Heat series) are in charge of tonight’s game. Only Mauer has worked a game in this series prior to tonight — he was teamed with Dan Crawford and Michael Smith in Game 1 in Orlando.

Mauer has worked three Celtics playoff games: Game 1 vs. the Magic, Game 3 vs. the Cavaliers and Game 4 vs. the Heat.


McCutchen and Callahan have worked one Celtics playoff game each, both in the Celtics-Cavaliers series. McCutchen did Game 6 and Callahan was on Game 4.

Kendrick Perkins is teetering on the brink of a one-game suspension with six postseason technical fouls. During the regular season, Perkins earned one of his 15 techs for arguing a call levied by McCutchen.Yesterday the league rescinded one of the two techs Perkins earned in a loss to Orlando, taking back the one he got for blowing up as he walked away after a call by Eddie Rush.
