I also saw him pull the same c*** later in the playoffs again with Miami, and I've seen him do it vs Boston a couple of years ago. He seems to get high for the home team, then goes beserk with the one sided fouls then with the technicals. He's either incompetent and gets swept away by the crowd cheering or he's dodgy.
Well that explains last night. I don't think its a coincidence he ref'd last night and the 1st game of the Miami series. Both games go down as the worst officiated in sports history. And yes I'm counting soccer!

Yeah he tried to front him more in the second half but he needs to start doing that to start the game. It frustrates players and often they get offensive fouls because they push off to get separation. The problem fronting the Grizz is that Randolf is a good passer but he really shouldn't be able to pass over a taller and lanky Tyson when he is locked in.
Woody needs to get Melo to front earlier in the game. I liked Melo's D in the second half when they made the run although he did cost the team points by throwing away a pass to Kidd just after he stolen an entry pass. Maybe 4 yrs ago Kidd would have ran that down. lol.
