Game 6 Officiating Discussion Thread

LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 11: Reggie Evans #30 of the Los Angeles Clippers reacts as he lies on his back in the second quarter while taking on the Memphis Grizzlies in Game Six of the Western Conference Quarterfinals in the 2012 NBA Playoffs on May 11, 2012 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

The Grizzlies overcame the Clippers 90-88 last night and are on the verge of becoming only the 9th team in history to overcome a 3-1 lead in a 7-game series. However, the real story of last night's game was the, for lack of a better word, kooky officiating, which the Grizzlies were often the beneficiaries of.

For the series, the officiating has been universally bad, with both teams ending up on the wrong end of some really terrible calls. Due to this, it's difficult to argue that it has tipped the scales of the series for either side. However, last night reached a new low (or high, depending on your sense of humor), much of which has already been documented in the form of gifs on the Mothersite. Consider this your discussion thread for the officiating (game recap to come later). Stretch those creative muscles as you suggest answers for some of the following questions:

-Why did the refs call a wacky technical on Reggie Evans?

-How would Blake Griffin's travel dance play with the judges on "So You Think You Can Dance?"

-If Reggie Evans falls in the woods, does a ref call a foul?

Those are just to get you started. Please add your own questions and answers below.
