Yes, you read that right folks. Tonight's referees include everyone's favorite Joey Crawford, according to Orange County Register columnist Kevin Ding.
There's nothing really wrong with Danny Crawford or Scott Foster, but Joey Crawford? This is the same man that threw Tim Duncan out for no reason, botched this call in the first round of the playoffs and committed several other crimes against basketball humanity. Oh, and he also has a quick trigger finger with technical fouls and ejections. Would you want to see a key player ejected from this game because Joey Crawford threw them out for mild complaining? Me neither, but there's always that possibility.
There's really only one explanation here: this is all a practical joke. If it's not that ... I don't know what to say.
