    but Rondo can't bump him or scream in his face. that will get you tossed by any official. although i have to agree that the call was absolute bullshit. that's a jump ball 99 times out of 99.

    ^^obviously what rondo did deserved a T... and probably an ejection - but I can only assume a more seasoned ref would've understood the gravitas of the call and just called a T. That call swung the whole game from a 2point game with 40seconds right back into a 99% chance of losing.

    it was just a hot head move. I'll bet you rondo won't get suspended though, just fined. They'll say he tripped on the ref and inadvertently bumped him.

    the funny thing is you could see pierce and garnett laughing when rondo got tossed. then bradley tried to say sorry and (another bad move) touch the ref's shoulder and the ref snapped back when he was touched. i've seen that ref be really prissy with chris paul and kobe too.

    Damn, Memphis is playing a perfect game tonight, nothing Clips could do tonight to beat them. They need to get that win on Wednesday now.

    Clippers bench > starters tonight. VDG should just bench all the starters tonight.

    partially agree. refs HAVE to toss players for making aggressive contact with them - they and the league have to protect themselves and send the message in no uncertain terms that there is a line that cannot be crossed. but i agree, the more experienced/cooler refs would have walked briskly away before issuing the first T. then, if Rondo wanted to run all the way after him and bump him, then the ref can toss him and have the satisfaction that he did everything he possibly could not to swing the outcome of a game 1

    Three things about this game.

    Shocked they came back and won on a 28-3 run.

    Feel bad for Caron Butler who's likely done for the playoffs, second year in a row.

    Chris Webber is bad at his current job.
