Celtics, Fans Livid Over Refereeing in Eastern Conference Finals
They're not happy, to say the least. Even If you just watched last night's contest from the 4th quarter on it was apparent that the calls made were consistently falling on the side of the Miami Heat, be they good calls or bad.
Without getting in to the details of every foul, I can imagine that what hurts the most is the fact that the Celtics, namely Rajon Rondo, put forth an epic effort in Game 2, a game they so badly needed, and felt overmatched not so much by the Heat, but by the referees as the game wore on.
Bill Simmons' tweets, I think, speak for all Celtics fans:
What do you think? Are Simmons and Celtics fans everywhere overreacting? Are we, the fans of all that is good and decent, simply rooting so hard for the Heat to lose that we're not acknowledging the fact that their physical superiority is what leads to the fouls going their way?
I, for one, can say that as a New York fan, just or unjust, anything that gets Boston riled up is at the very least, pretty amusing. But that's just me.
