Wallace wondered why the real issue — the officiating — wasn't addressed. After holding back, Wallace could do it no longer, so he let go with an expletive-filled tirade against the referees.
"All [the expletive] calls they had out there," Wallace finally spewed. "A lot of them phantom calls flopping and falling all over the floor . . ."
Wallace went off so much that he's likely to be fined for his comments against the referees. Five fouls were called on Wallace. Antonio McDyess was assessed the maximum six. Altogether, the Pistons were whistled 30 times. Wallace has six technicals this postseason, and will be suspended if he's tagged with a seventh.
