It's odd. In Game 1, the whistle-happy refs were nothing short of atrocious and sabotaged the game's entertainment value. Now, in Game 2, the refs aren't as bad, but... Well, Boston's in trouble right now.
Kendrick Perkins, Kevin Garnett, Rasheed Wallace, and Glen "Big Baby" Davis all have four fouls with a little more than four minutes to go the third quarter. It's never fun to see the refs decide a game, so let's hope I'm wrong, but... This could become relevant later.
For the Lakers, Kobe Bryant has four fouls, but as Mark Jackson pointed out, it's one of the great luxuries of having Pau Gasol: When Kobe sits down, the Lakers still have a first option.
When Perkins, Garnett, Wallace, and Big Baby are all in foul trouble? Well, the Celtics' interior defense gets A LOT more vulnerable. Something to keep an eye on.
