The Referees at The Suns Vs. Nuggets Game

So what's up with the referees in the Suns game last night?  They missed a ton of calls against the Nuggets in the 2nd half.  For instance, the foul on Louis Amundson at the end of the 3rd quarter.  It was clear that the defender had a hold of his arm in that play.  And the obvious one at the end of the game on Steve Nash.  If they had called that foul, Nash, a 95% free throw shooter, most likely would have made both shots, which would have tied the game up, they wouldn't have had to foul Carmello, which means they wouldn't have gotten the shots at the line, and Alvin Gentry wouldn't have gotten a technical, which means that they wouldn't have gotten an extra shot at the line.  Now most people say that refs can't lose games for teams, but in this case I think they did.
