The refereeing in the playoffs have a lot to be desired. The technicals are selectively imposed as evidenced on the three given to the Warriors. The discriminative fouls also imposed on the Heat were also egregious i.e the fouls on Shaq in the first game, the charging called on Wade in the fourth game, the fouls called against the Heat in the fourth game, etc., the lack of a gold tending call against Chicago in the first game - why do they even have the competition if the referees are not going to be objective and fair?

Stephen Jackson cannot control himself --- period! He gets thrown out of games because of this. The refs know his history and are not going to give him any breaks. Any rational player would get wised up and straighten himself out. But, Jackson will not change. That is why the Pacers traded him. I admit he is a good player and has helped the Warriors, but I'm glad he no longer is a Pacer.

It was just a bad call by the ref. The NBA knew it so they didn't punish Jax.

And Jax tonight scored a career high 33 pts including 7 3-pointers to knock off Dallas
