    First of all, the second tech against perkins was a joke. I am glad the NBA has rescinded it. I hate it when officials have personal vendettas against specific players and give them a reputation-based tech. Kudos to the NBA office for getting it right.

    Second, this series is still over. Boston is going to close them out in game six. Mark it down. I have a hard time seeing the Magic being able to win again in Boston. Even without Big baby, the c's will be ready and will shut those guys down.

    Nice to see the NBA do what they can to extend series but still make sure Celtics-Lakers happens. Overturning a tech so Perkins won't sit game 6...ridiculous. I don't care if the judgment for the T was wrong, a T is a judgment call and has to stand. The guy wouldn't shut up, he deserved a T.

    Why are these kinds of ruling made against refs when it comes to stars (Durant vs. Utah last second foul) or big-name teams? This isn't the WWE is it?

    If only the NBA were consistent, maybe teams like the Jazz (push off) and Suns (Amare suspension) would have a better shot at a title.

    Howard - the strongest and best elbows in basketball and getting away with it for a LONG time... only Shaq's girth gets away with more fouls.

    Go Magic, make history! And insure that it will not be a Celtics/Lakers finals. Then, and if the Suns can beat the Lakers in their series, I will be very very happy for the Finals.
