On the morning after one of the more controversial nights of the NBA playoffs, Doc Rivers sent a message to his team: If we have a foul to give, make sure you commit it the right way.
In other words, not the Wright way.
The controversial ending to Saturday night's Nuggets-Mavericks game was one of the primary topics of discussion at the Celtics' morning shootaround Sunday, with the teaching emphasis on having players use both arms to wrap up an opposing player on the perimeter to ensure the referee whistles the foul.
"The wrap-up also takes longer than raking a guy across the arms, and it reduces the chance that he can get off an attempt and get three foul shots," Rivers said.
In the Nuggets-Mavs game, Antoine Wright appeared to intentionally foul Denver's Carmelo Anthony twice when Dallas had a foul to give, and the NBA took the highly unusual action of issuing a statement after the game saying the referees had not made the correct call.
Among the Celtics' players, the lingering impression was that Wright was as much at fault as anyone because he did not commit the foul in the proper manner -- especially when he had the perfect opportunity at the moment when Anthony bobbled the ball before regaining control and sinking the game-winning shot.
It is customary procedure for coaches to inform referees, at the end of a timeout, that there will be an intentional foul given. Referees will not "anticipate" an intentional foul. "I always tell one referee, and all three if I can get their attention, that we'll be giving a foul," Nuggets coach George Karl said Sunday
Chauncey Billups rhetorically asked Sunday that if Wright indeed fouled Anthony, "why did he hold up both hands and act like he hadn't done anything?" Billups demonstrated Wright's reaction (as if surrendering with raised hands in a stagecoach robbery). "If he wanted to foul, put Carmelo in a bearhug," Billups said

1-3 now. If Mavs can keep the game close on Wednesday(which is doubtful), then who knows, they might just be able to steal one. Seeing how no one has been able to contain Dirk throughout this series, when he's shots are on, look out because he's more than capable of taking over a game at anytime. Of course he can't do it alone for 48 minutes, someone else has to step up big time. If they steal game 5, then momentum obviously shifts back to Dallas for game 6. Let's see how this turns out.

There's no way he has 5 amazing games in a row, I'm calling it!:



Dirk has his first "bad" game of the series, game 5!

I don't have a problem with a bad playing Dirk, if the Mavericks grab the win

Kinda wishing I didn't say that. Looks like I got a bit too confident before game 4

Still am pretty confident we close the series out tonight, but if the Mavs win then I'm going to be pretty shaky.
