Detroit vs. New York - Refs Win!



It would take merely the luck of the Irish to ruin a basketball game.

Not just Dolan and his pus-green Knicks outfits, mind you . . .

Officials for the game: Bennett Salvatore, Jason Phillips, and Tim Donaghy.

The last one isn't Rasheed Wallace's friend. He got ejected tonight . . . so did Rip Hamilton.

Then, the fouls started flying on both sides.

This game was perfectly under control, that is, until Donaghy's Tech Warriors went crazy at the start of the 3rd with the calls.

Larry Brown got a tech for standing on the court.

The Knicks, of course, have 4 fouls at this point on both of their guards.

I tuned in to watch a high-octane offensive show and a massive Pistons win.

As of the flagrant hands of Donaghy and the referees, we have a probable Knicks win in a defensive snoozefest.

Thanks, Donaghy and co., you're the 6th men on the court.

Hey Stern: Fuck you for allowing that Irish bastard to continue to receive a paycheck.

Update: Knicks win. Most bizarre ending . . . phantom foul call on McDyess, no time left, giving him two foul shots (Pistons were down by 2) while the Knicks were celebrating. Of course, Dice was hitting foul shots at 55 % this year. He missed the first one.

Replicated, replicated.

During the ejection, I heard plenty of "Fuck yous."

During LB's tech, I heard a bunch of "That's bullshit."

What's maddening are the non-calls they follow with the over-the-top calls.

That shit really has to stop.

Now they just took out Marbury in crunch time.

Madison Square Madness.

Um, if you're a Knicks fan, you should be really pissed right now. They called a foul, and now they're reviewing it.

Congratulations. 18-45 is a remarkable record, really.

Sorry. Just checked the standings and it said 18-45. Like it makes that much of a difference.

No one's saying that the Knicks are a better team AT ALL. In fact, this is the most discouraging season I've faced as a Knicks fan since I've been following basketball. They just play with no heart, which is pathetic considering how much they get paid. Just a bunch of undisciplined selfish brats. But enough with my rant... considering the above, let us be happy with our biggest win of the season. :P

It was truly big.

Detroit's bench is somehow worse than last year.

Also, Salvatore and Donaghy have been assigned to every playoff game for the Pistons.

First round upset.

It's too bad Artest can't play Detroit in Round 1. I'd like to see Malice 2, only, this time I hand Rasheed an uzi.

20-45, actually.

They're fucking Chicago's best lottery chances for the first pick in a genuinely shitty draft.

I wanna see Marbury slice Brown's hand with a switchblade.

Most insane game I have watched for some time.

I missed Malice at the Palace, I was at Target in LA while that one went down.

Ah, the deleted post.

LOL, what was that?! And the Knicks are running around the court like they just won a championship. I switched over from March Madness for the last couple minutes, and I have to say that's one of the strangest endings to a game I've ever seen.

High five Donaghy for me.

Yeah, I'd be ecstatic too, if I left a championship contender for a bunch of middle schoolers.

You know, Jalen Rose admitted, courtside post-interview . . . basically, he stated that the ejections by the Pistons helped them back in the game.

I think it was horrible play by Tayshaun, personally, at the end of the 2nd, that really helped this one in NY's favor.

The teams were run-n-gunnin' until about 2 minutes to go . . . in comes a sleepy Tayshaun. Suddenly, the Pistons slow the game to half-court (The Brown Plate Special), and Delk starts jacking up shots he has no business taking.

Almost 16 points in the lead eroded to nothing by the half.

Larry Brown post game interview . . .

Still not happy with the defense, but "it's getting better" . . . "when you lose (Rip and Rasheed), it's tough" . . .

Laimbeer's laughing at all this, and Blaha's playing Ringmaster George.

I do agree that officials show way too much favoritism and try to put themselves on center stage. An official needs to be unbiased and virtually invisible during the course of a game. Make calls as one sees them. Don't go anticipating who gets a call and who doesn't. If the officials weren't hiding behind their union, something could be done about it.

Fuck their union.

Yeah when I saw Sheed get that tech, then Malik Rose get a tech for jumping after a foul, it had gone too far.
