The refs suck, this is nothing new. But there are things the Lakers can do to get past it. You figure you how they're going to call and you adjust accordingly, this isn't the first time they've been in a situation like this. Look at the positioning that the Pistons have on the offensive boards, they are in the right spots are grabbing for the ball. Look at the Lakers in the same situation, there isn't anyone even close.
"Basketball reasons" is as believable coming from Mitch Kupchak as it was coming from David Stern. #IWantedPhil
