Even the best officials get it wrong. The question emanating from this game, however, was this: What were these three men doing working a game of this magnitude? On a February Thursday night when there are only three games on the schedule, someone in power thinks that Monty McCutchen, Jim Capers Jr., and Leon Wood should be working what was, in the minds of many, the biggest game of the 2008-09 regular season? Really? Were all the real officials on vacation? Not acceptable. No game of this scope should be placed in the hands of third-tier officials. There were going to be legitimately unhappy people, no matter who won this horribly mismanaged game that left both sides confused as to what was, and what wasn't, a foul right from the opening tap.

In the end, it was just one night in the Big 82, and we'd have to guess it didn't mean any more to the league office than if it were Thunder at Wizards. Someone picked the names of the three officials out of a hat. There's no other explanation.

The Celtics community is putting out excuse after excuse... The truth is we beat them fair and square besides not having a good game. We outhustled them again. Get over it*...

* It'll be nice to "get over it" like last time... losing 6 of 8 games or so :D

Good god.

The officiating was horrible, but it was bad both ways. Its not like the Lakers were favored in any respect. There were questionable calls for both teams, but that's no different than any NBA game.

The Celtics lost - deal with it.

How anyone can be a fan of the Celtics or anything involving them or their excuse laden community is way beyond me.

Its alright. No one is going to give the Lakers credit. They lost Bynum which means they will not be an NBA champion. Unfortunately in the eyes of many, that means the Lakers are irrelevant and what they do this entire season doesnt matter because they will ultimately fail.
