    Refs have a way of being influenced by which team is hot at the moment. However, the other older, gray-haird ref (not Bavetta) is the one who made some of the worst calls of the night. He should be punished by the league for his incompetence or prejudice, whichever makes him do this consistently against the Jazz when he refs their games.

    The Jazz stopped defending in the 3Q and were giving up everything at the rim. Griffin went largely unchecked for most of the second half. They settled for jump shots on the offensive end. When they stopped making the jumpers they were so far out of rhythm that they couldn't get back into it. Don't blame the refs, guys. You burned a double digit lead.

    Dick Bavetta's birthday is coming up in a few days. I'm sending him a nice pair of eye glasses. That was the worst performance I've seen by a ref in a long time.

    It's an "entertainment event" not a competition. Not sure why sports betting is allowed on nba games? You can't bet on the outcome of a movie.

    @toosmart - Agree with you totally. They should have never allowed themselves to be in that position at the end of the game.

    Bad execution and dumb mistakes are the reason for this loss, not the officials.

    Another wasted opportunity, leading by 14 in the third quarter, and then blaming the officials. Sure, they booted the call, but why were the Jazz in a position that it mattered? They seem to have a hard time learning that the game is 4 quarters and they need to play until the final buzzer.
