Joey Crawford officiating Game 2
Miami Heat Game 2 win is now imminent.
Side note: last game he officiated was Game 4 of the ECF last season.
Kudos to the Miami Heat for their game 2 victory. Game 3 will be interesting with the series tied.
The best referees are invisible. The fact that we know Joey Crawford by name says it all about how (very) poorly he refs. Ditto for Ken Mauer.
It doesn't help that Duncan and Parker held guns to his head at one point, maybe Crawford will throw the Spurs a bone for once. :3
I hate stuff like this. Is ESPN trying to feed into peoples anxieties? I don't care who refs a game, as long as they do it fairly. This is just going to create controversy with every blown/missed call
spurs have no chance tonight
Can't tell if the original post's side note was serious or not, but I'm pretty sure Crawford just reffed at least one game in the Pacers-Heat series which was not last season.
Yeah it was, after Bosh went out and they lost game 3. It was even in the ESPN report.
It was definitely this season's game 4 between the Heat and Pacers. This ESPN report says so. Plus I watched the game too.
Lebron has fouled out five times in his career. Two of those are playoff games where he could eliminate the other team (thereby shortening the series) and those games were officiated by Joey Crawford.
You have to admit that was a crazy foul out in the Indiana game. You never see that foul called and to see it called in game six against a superstar who has five fouls is just unheard of.
