Some quality whining by Mr. Van Gundy. On a related note, I'm still not sure who pissed in his Wheaties:

"The fact that they’re the most physical defensive team in the league and never foul, that’s a helluva team,” Miami coach Stan Van Gundy said. “It wasn’t me being upset about the fouls called on us. I just thought we were attacking pretty darned good, too.

“We’ll have to look (at the film). Their technique must be great because they lean on you and never foul.”

Well, who hasn't whined about freethrow discrepancy? I know whenever it happens to the P's it comes up here every time.

I just love the fact that we're the team that lesser teams are *****ing about getting all the calls. How many times have we been in their position?

About time!!! :dance:

Could this be the start of the era of the "Pacers" Bias??? :o

It's a conspiracy against the big markets.

They want to drive down ratings and lower the salary cap.

:arrgh:

I don't see any bias.

Pacers were really aggressive yesterday taking the ball to the basket. They took very few outside shots. The Heat foul a lot, out those to things together and you have a ton of free throws.

Defensively the Pacers were very good yesterday, and I did not see a lot of fouls

All I know is that dude looks just like Ron Jeremy the porn star - a dead ringer. He needs to shut up and coach. Of course I watched the game and I really didn't understand the free throw discrepancy either.

I have to say I've seen more games this year where fouls are called in a lopsided fashion than I have in previous years. This is not just the games the Pacers are playing, and in Pacer games it isn't always against the Pacers, either.

It may just be me, but I don't think that reflects very well on the officiating. I can imagine an occasional game where one team is getting "all ball" and defending well without making contact, but so many of them makes me wonder if the refs end up just looking at one team or the other based on the first few events of a quarter.

It is to ponder.
