Celtics Lakers Game 3

  1. NBA Finals, Lakers Celtics: Celtics minority owner confronts David Stern after Game 3 over officiating

    Jun 10, 2010, 9:53 AM EDT

    Plenty of people watching the NBA Finals have wanted to yell at NBA Commissioner David Stern about it. Celtics minority owner Jim Pallotta did just that after Game 3. He confronted Stern and said the officiating was an embarrassment to the league. That likely means a fine is on the way, and maybe a healthy…

  2. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics: Doc Rivers complains about officiating, dabbles in irony

    Jun 9, 2010, 5:46 PM EDT

    Let’s be clear up front: The officiating during the NBA finals has not been good. Fans from Boston to Los Angeles have been complaining as games have been called tight and stars have been in foul trouble. Wednesday it was Doc Rivers turn to flirt with a fine from the league, as reported by ESPN’s…

    After practices on the off day, everybody was still talking Derek Fisher. Even Derek Fisher.  

  4. NBA instant replay: Do we need more of it? A PBT roundtable discussion

    Jun 9, 2010, 2:08 PM EDT

    The star of the NBA finals Game 3 — just after Derek Fisher but ahead of Brian Scalabrine — was instant replay. The officials went to it constantly down the stretch of a close game. Good, because they got the calls right, sort of; or bad because it disrupted the flow of the game? We’ve…

  5. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 3: Bynum "tweaks" knee, says he is "questionable" for Game 4

    Jun 9, 2010, 10:57 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum has been key for the Lakers this series, occupying and scoring some on Kendrick Perkins on offense (so Perk isn’t pushing Pau Gasol around) and protecting the rim on defense. He is the key reason the Celtics are shooting below 50 percent at the rim — on layups and putbacks — in the…

  6. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 3: Derek Fisher does what Derek Fisher does and the Celtics pay

    Jun 9, 2010, 1:17 AM EDT

    Here is the basics of the scouting report every team gets on Derek Fisher: Don’t let him catch and shoot, particularly late in games. Make him shoot off the dribble, hit pull up jumpers, do that and he will miss. So what did Fisher do in the fourth quarter of Game 3 of the NBA…

  7. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 3: Officiating is already the story, and tip off is eight hours away

    Jun 8, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    My plea has fallen on deaf ears. After seeing 134 free throws through the first two games, after seeing the officiating and fouls called play a key role in both games, the announcement of the referees for Game 3 has led basketball fans everywhere to say, “Are you kidding me?” In Boston and Los Angeles,…
