I didn't mention this before, but I felt the Knicks were focus on shutting down Lin and fouling him.

Or maybe they were just that bad on defense. But I can see that Nets try to play clean defense and their fouls were unintentional. Whereas Knicks would put responsibility on the refs to call their physical fouling defense... with emphasis to shutting down Lin.

Lin did shoot like crap in 3 quarters, but there was a lot of contact.

Refs are doing a better job this year of calling fouls when fouls are committed on Lin. I have actually noticed the black refs making some of these calls, when it rarely happened last season.

Maybe that youtube video the Chinese-mom made last year of Lin (getting fouled without a technical) is getting around.
