Default Re: Analysis on why LeBron/Cavaliers lost to Celtics in 2010 round 2

I'm starting to think the refs played a part in Boston's success against the Cavs from watching this game against Orlando. Dwight has 7 TO and there's still 4 min left. Wade and LeBron's turnovers were way up as well. A lot of that is due to great Celtic defense, but I also think it is due to refs letting a lot more go in the playoffs. The Celtics are an aggressive team and benefit from looser whistles in the playoffs. I'm not trying to take anything away from Boston. I think every team should play as aggressive as they do. I just think the fact that a lot of the turnovers they're forcing would be fouls in the regular season is playing a part (however big or small) in their success.
