Undeniable proof the refs are favoring the Cavaliers

Undeniable proof the refs are favoring the Cavaliers

Kendrick Perkins was assessed a flagrant one for this cheap shot and a double technical foul given to both Crowder and Perkins. Apparently, the officials didn’t like the way Crowder responded to taking TWO shots to the face. If Perk pulled this stunt back in 2010, he would have been ejected and suspended. But when [...]

4up/4down: Celtics vs Cavaliers (Game 3)

4up/4down: Celtics vs Cavaliers (Game 3)

For those of you who have watched the Longest Yard (the newest one), here’s an analogy for this series.
