Boston's Perkins to play in Game 6

The NBA on Thursday rescinded one of the two technical fouls assessed to Celtics center Kendrick Perkins in Boston's loss to Orlando in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals Wednesday night, meaning Perkins will be available to play in Friday's Game 6.

Here is the rest of the article from espn.com.

    The right call was made to rescind Perkins' technical, and he deserves to play in Game 6.

    I am all for referees to make the calls in the context of the game. My hard guess is while Perkins was walking away he probably used profanity loud enough for Ed Rush to hear it. That should be sufficient for the technical.

    Referees should be given proper leverage to call the game as they see fit. Otherwise players are going to get hurt and games would run out of control. I support the idea of no objection to the calls except by the captain or the coach, and that is only if there is no consensus amongst the referees.

    With this being the playoffs, I don't believe a player should get a second technical or get thrown out of a game unless he does something really blatant or intentionally tries to injure someone else.

    That being said, Perkins has to realize that Boston needs him out there and he has to watch his language when talking to the refs.

    I guess im the only one who thinks perkins two tech's were ok. The first one he clearly elbows marcin in the chest and marcin slaps the ball away. The second one he turns around and screams at the ref,then turns the other way and walks away but yelling profanity as he does it. Both will get you a tech under normal circumstances,when you argue a call as long as you stay away from big gesture's and yelling you usually wont get a tech.
