It was evident from the start of the game that the officials were calling this game to extend the series.

Two minutes left in the first half, and Eddie Rush called Kendrick Perkins for a technical foul.  

The problem was that Perkins had walked away and was not trying to upstage the referee.

It wouldn't have been so bad, but it was Perk's second and an automatic ejection. The Celtics were left without their anchor in the middle and so started a slow dissent and a Game Six in Boston.
