Game 2 Refs – oO.

This is interesting. Game 2’s officials are Joey Crawford, Ed Malloy and Ken Mauer. This means there are likely to be a lot more fouls, and even technical fouls called against both teams. It also means the home team likely has an advantage.

Crawford’s uneven history against both teams gives both fans cause to be nervous. He had the balls to foul out LB James on an illegal screen. Looks like LB James got less than the usual 10-12 fouls he commits during a game with this one:

His history with Tim Duncan is unusual at best. Crawford ejected Duncan for laughing on the bench:

That little bit of rabbit-eared paranoia got Crawford suspended for the remainder of that season. It was about the same level as Jess Kersey ejecting the Coyote from a game.

Meanwhile, MiamiFan has to be thankful. That is, if there were anything such as MiamiFan, you’re a bandwagoner anyway. It means lots of trips to the line where the Heat can pile up points, instead of having to rely on their misfiring offense.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
