If you've been watching college basketball, you have seen the UCLA Bruins benefit from more than a few friendly calls from the referees. Now it seems the Bruin's good luck has shifted to their NBA counterparts, the Lakers.
Fifty-two minutes and fifty-six seconds played and the Golden State Warriors find themselves down by two points.
An attempted inbounds play with Derek Fisher guarding Monta Ellis ended with D-Fish tripping and taking Monta down with him. The official called a foul on Ellis, eliminating a chance to see the last second shot the Warriors deserved.
The other officials could have easily stepped in and corrected the official in error, however they opted to deny us a little NBA March madness.
As a result, we were forced to watch the game end with Kobe hitting two free throws to put the game out of reach.
After an amazing game in LA, the refs did not give us the same excitement at the end of the game in Oakland.
So I guess we'll have to wait for the "luck" of the refs to move up the coast and help out in the Bay Area.
