Carlos Boozer Not Blaming Refs for Loss
The 89-82 deficit on the scoreboard hurt the Bulls badly enough.
The 31-14 discrepancy in free-throw attempts felt like piling on.
“Listen, we’re not going to blame the referees for our loss,” Carlos Boozer said. “It was our fault we let up 25 points in the fourth quarter. But the discrepancy was huge and I thought we were being pretty aggressive.”
Asked if he received or asked for explanations of the calls, (Bulls coach Tom) Thibodeau actually chuckled a bit.
“No, they don’t talk to me,” he said.
