Heat-Celtics (Game 3): Refs not a problem, except for this one no-call hard to miss

May 8th, 2011 4 comments

We’ve been on a streak of good officiating where there hasn’t been any major blown calls that had a huge impact on the outcome of a game. After all, we’ve now got the “best” referees as graded by the league officiating the four series currently being played. We’ve also had games that haven’t been that close in the 3rd and 4th quarters, so the stakes haven’t been as high for a call or no-call to affect the outcome.

For Saturday’s games between Oklahoma City and Memphis, although it was a close game that went into overtime, there really wasn’t a bad ref call or no-call that could have changed the outcome. Same goes for Miami-Boston. We thought the play where Rajon Rondo fell to the floor with Dwyane Wade and dislocated his elbow was more of an accident where a no-call was the right call to make.

The only other call/no-call that stood out was in the 3rd quarter involving Ray Allen taking a shot, and obviously getting fouled by Wade, but there was no call.
