Am I the Only One Who Noticed (or cared)?
Mike Breen astutely noted with 6:30 left in last night's game that the Spurs had a 10-point lead on the Cavs, similar to the 13-point lead the Mavs had over the Heat with 6:30 left last year in Game 3. Sure, enough the Cavs then went on an 8-0 run over the next four minutes and history seemed destined to at least begin repeating itself. But then what happened? LeBron didn't get the D-Wade star treatment, getting hammered on at least three occasions without a whistle, and the Cavs lost. If only the same refs had worked last year's Finals. Well, apparently I may be the only one who noticed, as the ratings continued to approach the level of the pre-strike NHL.
