Officials assigned for Game 3

The NBA has announced the officiating crew for tonight’s Game 3 of the NBA Finals at TD Garden.

Dan Crawford, Bill Kennedy and Bennett Salvatore have been assigned. None of them have refereed a Finals game yet this year.

Salvatore is no stranger to the spotlight, especially when it comes to the Lakers. In April, Lakers coach Phil Jackson criticized him after a 100-81 loss to the Spurs that included a technical on the Lakers’ Ron Artest. Jackson also criticized Salvatore and the officiating crew in last season’s playoffs during the Lakers-Nuggets series.
