The Phoenix Suns have taken a comfortable 2-0 lead over the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA Finals, but many people are convinced they will lose Game 3 on Sunday night. Part of that has to do with the difficulty of winning three straight games in a playoff series. Of course, there is also the fact that Scott Foster is officiating.
Foster and Chris Paul have a long history together. The veteran referee will be the crew chief for Game 3, which could be a very bad sign for the Suns. Simply put, it has been downright impossible for one of Paul’s teams to win a playoff game in recent years when Foster is officiating. Paul’s teams have lost 11 consecutive postseason games when Foster is one of the referees.
