Derek Fisher clearly fouled Brent Barry, and Barry should have been awarded two free throws (not in the act of shooting at the time of the foul, penalty situation).

TNT didn't show extensive replays of the two previous plays, but I thought the goaltending call on Tony Parker's layup might have been a clean block and that Derek Fisher's last shot just grazed the rim before going out of bounds off the Spurs (meaning that the shot clock should have reset on the Lakers' last possession).

The replay of Parker's layup didn't make me think it was goaltending I'd need to see it again. Derek Fisher at the end though...

The Lakers are a good team. They don't need to steal games... And they literally stole a game with the help of a ref tonight.

And TNT's explanations saying that he should have "sold" the foul are ridiculous.

But, hey, we have gambling refs in the NBA, so no surprises. I am sure Stern is happy as he got a step closer to the Finals he wanted.

My inside source was wrong and the GREATkers didn't sweep, but that's because they realized it would be sweeter to close them out at home and MVP Kobe Black Mamba Bryant likes streamers and confetti when he wins the western conference.

Still, just another EZ peezy weezy for the purple and gold. Wire to wire lead all game long. DUMBcan and GiNOSEbli just couldn't keep up. Refs making a good no-call with the contact at the end, offsetting the clock not being reset on SWISHers shot the previous play. So nice!

The Lakers had the game, being up by 7. It was a 3 possession game, and then Kobe made a bad play (if memory serves me) and then suddenly it was a 2 point game. I didn't watch any post-game. I turned it off after Kobe's "interview".

Stole the game? They outplayed the Spurs the entire game. If we're going to go with non-calls/questionable calls, than the goaltending on Parker's layup and Fisher's shot grazing the rim come into play as well.

Who gives a damn who outplayed who? Games are decided by points made, not who deserves to win.

The goaltending was crystal clear. And there was a foul on Parker on that play that the refs did not call.

But hey, I am sure all the Spurs-haters are happy. And I like the Lakers but simply hate the way it ended.

I agree that it wasn't the ending either side would hope for, but to say that it was stolen is stretching just a bit.

↑what he said

Not to mention the Lakers were in control for most of the game. They never lost the lead, if I recall correctly.

there is no way in hell you call a foul on the last play of the game 28 feet from the basket on that play.

sorry... no chance.

yes, of course... because the spurs had the lead for the majority of the game and clearly deserved better than what they got.

ohhh wait, that was the lakers.

stolen? give me a break... it's questionable as to if you should call a foul on the floor that would have only given the spurs the opportunity to tie a game they never had the lead in, sending it to overtime, where there was no gaurantee whatsoever that they would have won, considering that the lakers controlled the majority of the game.

*edit to add - not to mention that they never should have gotten the last shot to begin with, because the ball clearly hit the rim and the lakers should have had a reset... not to mention that the spurs completely choked away game 1... not to mention that they had every opportunity to take this game LONG before the no call in question but could not put it away against a, let's not forget, short-handed laker team (i don't believe i saw bynum on the court, did you?)... not to mention that kobe bryant went to the free throw line ZERO times.

rigged? stolen? stern is setting it up for ratings? wow, you've got one hell of an argument, let me tell ya. gimmie a break.

nice game by manu, btw. way to step up.
