    you can always count on the bulls to beat lebron in the regular season. cavs don't hit a shot for 8+ minutes to start the 4th quarter even though the bulls defense seems to be predicated on giving the cavs all the wide open 3's they would like. meanwhile the bulls bench is scoring at will.

    that's why cavs need indy to knock the bulls out of the playoffs. the bulls only play well against one team and it's cleveland.

    they have 6 ref eyes surrounding these plays up close. they're not missing anything. they just blow their whistles when 'necessary'.

    It would take a miracle for the bulls to make the playoffs.

    knowing jr smith's ft% i was actually mad he got fouled. and even then the bulls give up wide open 3's defense still works with delly's lin-like airball.

    also, kind of obvious foul on pau when jr stole it from him but now it will be off of jr.

    Even better. Much more interested in watching turner and pg13 and detroit in the playoffs than Pau Gasol and the dumb and dumber.

    Clear cut foul. More clear couldnt be. Second game in a row refs directly altered the outcome of a game by missing easy calls.

    a game-deciding call is ignored to make up for a play in the first Q of a game 18 months ago between different teams :confused:

    just saw the stephenson drive. pretty hilarious non-call. apparently no one blocked it and stephenson just almost missed the backboard from 2 feet.

    Lol. I just googled the lance foul non call to see what everybody's talking about, and found this vid in the first results... Relax. Shows how hilarious can be expected of this reffing thing.

    today's game there seems to be bad calls both ways, as Griz got their share of calls earlier as well.. I agree that even the refs could be holding the whistle in the last sec due human nature of avoiding the anti-climatic.

    Stotts might be one of the best coaches drawing up a play out of a timeout but on the defensive end that was a terrible play. He had an undersized 3/4 tweener guarding KAT right underneath the basket with no players in between so KAT just got a direct pass easily from the inbounder and shot it over in almost one motion.

    if mavs win out (not unlikely as clipper and spurs will likely sit everyone) or if portlands loses to denver and mavs lose 1 of the 3 games......they are 5th seed WTF

    The refs were terrible both ways. Memphis got away with too many calls until 4th, when they couldn't get any calls.

    That play Curry was shoved away on that fast break layup? Even a blind person could see that.
