The New York Knicks and Boston Celtics started their playoff series yesterday but the game ended with a little controversy. With just over 20 seconds left, and a one-point lead for the Knicks, Carmelo Anthony was called for a offensive foul. The call is getting all sorts of scrutiny from around the league and fans alike. Boston’s Ray Allen hit the game winning three point shot on the next possession as a result of the call. My Knicks lost to the referees not to the Celtics. As far as I’m concerned this is still a 0-0 series and the Knicks will still sweep! Check out the highlights of last nights action.
In the late game last night we saw the Oklahoma City Thunder down the Denver Nuggets in game one of their series. This game also ended in controversy with another questionable call coming from the referees. With just over a minute left the Thunder took the lead on what was clearly an illegal basket by Kendrick Perkins. The Thunder never looked back from that point on as they held off the Nuggets for a 107-103 win. Check out the call and all of the highlights right here.
