Clarifying the calls for clarification

CLEVELAND — Cavs coach Mike Brown  raised a few eyebrows when he suggested that the foul Shaquille O’Neal  put on Rajon Rondo  late in the game was actually not a foul, and that he asked for clarification from the league. It turns out that Brown was actually referring to a different Shaq foul on Rondo from the second quarter.
The act of asking the league to clarify calls in a specific game is a time-honored ritual for coaches during playoff series.Doc Rivers  said he asked the league about four different calls. “I’m scared to tell you which ones because I may get fined for it,” Rivers said before Game 2. “They said I was right.”
