What will the Pacers be allowed to do?

Before you criticize me for just blaming the refs, see my post below.

  • When Jermaine O'Neal gets fouled, will he be allowed to confront the other player without getting a technical? (O'Neal stopped doing this later in the Celtics series because he probably noticed the Celtics getting technicals for doing this)
  • Will the Pacers' point guards be allowed knee, straight arm, elbow, and throw their shoulders into any defender who dares to cover them tightly?
  • Will Dale Davis be allowed to continue with his cheap shots under the basket?
  • Will they be allowed to grab, hold, and shove Rip Hamilton if he moves without the ball?
  • Will they be allowed to push the body of a low post shooter? (This is a common defensive maneuver and the refs called it a lot for established low post players like O'Neal, Duncan, etc. Walker and Jefferson never got this call in the series.)
  • Will they be allowed to slap people without a whistle as they reach for the ball?
  • Will the Pistons need to flop every time to get a whistle?

The Celtics sucked

Kris, I think that was obvious. Thanks for emphasizing your point

For me, Walker and Pierce are the anti Bird and Mchale. They are only in love with their stats.

Walker and Pierce love to shoot the ball, forcing it up constantly. Bird and McHale would do anything to win
