The referees for Game 6 are, surprisingly, not drawing much ire from the Celtics fanbase.
Monty McCutchen, Joe DeRosa, and Ken Mauer will be making the calls tonight, and in an age where it can be hard to find even one ref the fans are OK with, the NBA seems to have found three as far as the members of CelticsBlog are concerned.
While we do have a tax evader (Mauer), and the man who was suspended for throwing a ball at a fan during the Magic series, the general consensus seems to be that tonight’s officials are far from the worst case scenario. As one poster put it:
This is not a good ref assignment for conspiracy theorists.
Let’s hope we’re still saying that by the time the game is over.
