Nope. These things happen all the time. Again...46-18 advantage for Indiana tonight, and no one woulda said a peep if I didn't bring it up. But if it's 46-18 in favor of a team like the Lakers or Knicks...oh lawd. Heck, Game 5 of the 2002 WCFs was just as bad, with prime Shaq fouling out and shooting 1 free throw the entire game, while Bobby Jackson was pulling Kobe's jersey as he went up for the game winner. Heck, even Game 7 involved a very dubious foul at half court that sent the game to OT for the Kings.
Game 6 of the 2002 WCFs wasn't fixed. You can say, "you know" all you want, but you're wrong. Only reason people complain is because it involves the Lakers Otherwise it would have been forgotten or never even noticed in the first place, like tonight's game.
(but playing the victim card feels better)
