Though this incident was ruled as unintentional by the refs, it does provide us with highlights for what is to come later in the series. We’re starting to play high stakes basketball now and a series win puts us a step closer to the brass ring. I fear our main ball handlers and guys who attack the lane are in store for some real physical punishment, some of which might be deemed intentional. I’m just wondering how the refs will look at it and how far they will allow the offenders go before they blow the whistle. It ain’t going to be pretty. Better buckle your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
