The media is biased in favor of who is more spectacular and "sells" more (e.g Jordan, Lebron, Kobe etc.) and against teams like the Spurs and Detroit who play team basketball. That is a FACT! The media never criticise the refs (when has anyone ever seen an NBA ref getting blasted?) because the refs are part of the same system that feeds them.
San Antonio did not lose Game 3 because of what they did in Quarter 1 (25% FG% etc). They were robbed by Spooner and his sh*t calls in Q4 when they were in the middle of a historic comeback. Whether the Spurs have "benefited from bogus calls" in the past is IRRELEVANT to what is happening now and should not have any influence on the officiating. This argument is total BU**S*IT.
