Game 7 refs: Crawford, Callahan, Foster
It’s a bit depressing that this information is important at this point, but given the way this series was officiated the first couple games, it’s hard to deny that the officials could have a major effect on Game 7 on Saturday night. With that in mind, the Game 7 officials are Joey Crawford, Mike Callahan, and Scott Foster (with Ed Malloy as an alternate).
In case you were wondering, NBA officials are predetermined for the first four games of the series, and then assigned based on how the officials have graded out over the course of the series. For the record, the Celtics are 10-1 in the last 11 games that Callahan has officiated.
