Ref assignments for Game 6

As part of the NBA’s new transparency in the wake of the Tim Donaghy fiasco, the league has been posting referee assignments [1] in advance of games. Here’s the crew for Game 6 in Chicago:

Joey Crawford

Ed Malloy

Derrick Stafford

Crawford is known throughout the league as the official you most want to have if you’re on the road in a big game, although San Antonio would probably disagree. (He also once threatened to give me a technical in a media 3-0n-3 tournament but that’s neither here nor there. I’m telling you, it was a charge.)
