NBA's a joke

In the second half and overtime, the Celtics took five free throws. Four of those shots came after intentional fouls.

I was thinking the exact same thing in OT. Amazed that Doc Rivers was able to keep his composure through all the b-s at the end of reg, and the only fouls being called when the Celts had the ball were on them (offensive). Amazed also they called a foul on Indy with 1 second left, even if it was intentional.
Whatever sympathy and respect I had for the Pacers this year is gone after this game. They hit 2 Celtics in the face in the last parts of the game (Pierce, Davis) and got away with both. Alan, maybe you are right about them.
Also a little painful to see Bird openly rooting against the Celts.

1 last thought - Antoine Walker may be erratic and sometimes his decision making is poor, yet down the stretch he was the only consistant scorer and the Celts would be done if he was still in Atlanta.
