Felger: That game was egregious. It wasn’t just that play. I mean, the Celts are getting touch fouls on the other end of the floor. Jaylen Brown is getting and-ones left and right. One of them the Lakers replayed and it was actually you know turned over by Secaucus, there was a Anthony Davis foul that was…..
Mazz: Never touched him.
Felger: Never touched him, but there was over and over again the Celtics kept getting these touch fouls on their end.
Jim Murray: The one on Brown, Beverley did hit him though.
Felger: He tapped him on their head in the back of the head. I don’t know.
Jim Murray: Because initially I was like, “oh please”
Felger: They didn’t call it at first. And Brown raised his hands in the air, and then they blew the whistle. And he did. He grazed him on the back of his head. So that’s the way they were calling it. And then LeBron goes down the other end and right in front of the ref on the baseline, like looking right at it, gets hacked right on the arm. And I just wonder if that ref, that crew, or the refs around the league are like, “you know what, F-you, I’m not giving you the call. I’m sick of giving you the call. I’m sick of you carrying on. I’m sick of you running around like a fool every time you don’t get a call”. You know, Beverly plays right into it, running out with the camera before overtime. And so, you know, the way the refs are wired and human nature being what it is, it’s like….
Jim Murray: Oh, yeah, you think of it, you look at a certain guy, you’re like, “oh eff off”.
Felger: Eff you. I’m not giving you the call, even though it’s obvious. It’s right in front of my face. I’m just, “screw you”.
Mazz: But there’s got to be some of that, right? It’s only human to do that.
Felger: I mean, I thought that game was fishy.
