Watching this serie a question came into my mind. I knew already that the home team was protected and in case of doubt the home team would always receive favourable call. But now I have the feeling that the NBA wants those series to go in seven. Of course the NBA could not change the outcome of a serie in 2001 because we were really too good. But this year, all the games are tight (well, not all :man7: ) and finishing a LA-SA serie in 7 would mean a lot of money for the NBA. I am maybe (probably
?) completly wrong but some FT stats and referees calls are sometimes really really strange. I am no defending only the Lakers because bad calls were whistle for both teams.
What do u think?
