The Los Angeles Lakers (and Lakers fans) have not been happy about how they’ve been officiated this season. That’s been abundantly clear to anyone who’s watched their games or witnessed the “Refs you suck!” chants that have been a regular occurrence at Staples Center.
It was no different on Wednesday night, in the Lakers hard-fought 109-102 loss to a dominant Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks — only the team’s fourth road game and first of a five-game East Coast swing.
After all: if they weren’t getting the calls at home, they certainly weren’t going to on the road.
In his postgame remarks, Lakers head coach Frank Vogel — who was visibly incensed by a few whistles in the fourth quarter — voiced his frustrations and said the NBA will be hearing from the Lakers, again.
