Questionable Calls Doom Lakers in Game 2

Fact: The Los Angeles Lakers lost Game 2 of the 2010 NBA Finals. Fiction: The Celtics won with solid officiating.

Bad calls happen in basketball games and everyone acknowledges that. But come on! The refs made a questionable decision even after a review! In one crucial moment, the referees needed help from instant replay todetermine a possession that clearly was last touched by Kevin Garnett. But surprise! The ball goes to Boston! Way to go refs.

I generally feel OK when the Lakers lose and they deserve it  (remember the 2008 NBA Finals?). But that call ruined Game 2 for me. I'm sure the millions of Lakers fans out there are equally outraged by that call.

One more thing: Kobe Bryant's was defended well in the game... by the refs!
