Lakers-Celtics, Game 4: Eddie Rush Among Three Officials For Tonight's NBA Finals Game

The NBA has announced the three referees for Thursday nights Game 4: it's Scott Foster, Eddie F. Rush and Greg Willard. Make what you will of this, Celtics fans.

Rush is the referee who gave Celtics center Kendrick Perkins a technical foul for arguing a foul call in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals vs. Orlando. The technical resulted in Perkins being ejected from the game and at the time put him over the NBA limit of seven in the playoffs, which meant a one-game suspension. It was later rescinded by the NBA.

Perkins remains on the cusp of a suspension with six technicals in the playoffs.

UPDATE: From CelticsBlog comes this little bit of video of Eddie Rush at work:
