Most galling to the Lakers was that O'Neal fouled out in just 32 minutes Tuesday and shot only one free throw in the game -- something that's happened only one other time in the last six years.

"You see somebody like Shaq, who's so dominant, that goes 14 for 18 from the field (in Game 5), all his shots are in the paint, dunks. And the men that are guarding him, Vlade (Divac) and (Scot) Pollard have one or two fouls between them for a whole game," Shaw said.

"That's impossible, to guard Shaq for an entire game and only get one or two fouls. Regardless of how big and how strong Shaq is, if it's a foul, it's a foul. You see Kobe (Bryant) get his jersey pulled out (by Bobby Jackson) at the end of the game.

"When it's all said and done, I think that somebody has to police the referees and ... police the people who police the referees. They have to be held accountable for stuff like that, that they let go by, especially if it affects the outcome of a game."

"I'm saying this subjectively, (as) if I'm a fan, if I'm watching and you see it in slow motion. You get to see a replay or you see it happen on the floor, if it's not happening, it kind of turns you off," Shaw said. "It makes you say the game is not being decided by the guys that are out there on the floor. And that's what it's supposed to be all about."
I have seen this for the whole series & it makes me sick!

Lakers win tonight & it goes 7 - Surprise Surprise
