Yes, he just let Fisher sodomize Barry in front of God and everyone. Barry obviously deserved a minimum of 2 freethrows. Some refs might have even given him 3 shots. I am sure he is chuckling right now as he heads back to the airport Hilton. Incredibly though, he hadn't been too egregious before that. Sure, he blew some other really obvious calls, mostly that pertained to Duncan, but he was fairly liberal on calling the Lakers' blatent hacks, blocks, and reaches. That was OK. It was just too bad the Spurs sucked ass (Manu esp.) so badly that they could not grab this winnable game.
And that is not too bad. You know why? Because if the Spurs had won this game, then they would have mailed in game 5. The only way they would have won that won in that case, would have been if the Lakers had also mailed it in, and then it would have been a tossup. Instead, the Spurs are going to claw tooth and nail to get game 5. I would put their chances at better than 50% for that game. Had they won, I would have put their chances at about 10%. If the Spurs end up after Thursday down 3-2, will it really make any difference that they lost the home game and won on the road? I don't think so. Go get 'em Spurs. These Lakers are ripe for the picking. They are overconfident right now and about to experience their first home playoffs loss.
