I see where you are coming from, but I don't think the refs are actually thinking about KL or CP3. I do think they are thinking about how they can help foster a competitive game. sometimes that means trying hard to call it 50/50 and they make mistakes and do have make up calls or look for particular stuff that players complain about. and it gets annoying for me when they are not consistent. Like why is something reviewed on replay out of bounds on booker in the last 2 mins when it wouldn't be reviewed out of bounce for the other 46 mins? I thought Jeff Van Gundy's point was spot on.No..this game was pretty close. I am 100 percent certain...like literally no doubt....that the refs saw a close game...with 2 super stars out. If the Sun's win this game...and CP3 is back, everyone knows its over in 5. However...if the refs just hand the clips this game with their nonsense calls at the end of the game (offensive foul on Booker, followed by just a flat out lie saying it goes off Bokks hand)...then this series might go 6-7 games...Kawhi might play...it would be "better for the league"....so they just blatantly cheat. Those 2 plays I mentioned were fixed. They were not called fairly, and they were meant to give the clips the win. If George hits the gifted free throws they win.
My point about blowouts is that when you have one...all of sudden there are no fouls, no penalties at all. The refs sit there. In a real league...there are penalties...it doesn't matter the score or the time on the clock...the game is called pretty much straight up and fair. In the NBA the refs decide if they will make calls based on how it will effect the outcome of the game...not becauseca penalty actually occurs
I don't think KL is going to play in this series. and if he does rush back before he is fit to play, you have to wonder what he will be able to do physically, especially the way the suns are playing.
