    The Miami Heat’s winning streak was snapped at 27 games at the hands of the Chicago Bulls Wednesday night, their first loss in over a month. One of the more interesting things though were the comments from Heat forward LeBron James after the game. James complained about officiating as he made it clear that he feels the Bulls got away with fouls against him that should have been called flagrant. Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge decided to weigh in on the topic while talking with an interview with WEEI yesterday. His comments about LeBron might raise a few eyebrows. “I think the referees got the calls right. I don’t think it was a hard foul,” Ainge said on Salk & Holley. “I think the one involving LeBron against Boozer, that was flagrant. I think the officials got it right. “I think that it’s almost embarrassing that LeBron would complain about officiating.” While embarrassing is a bit too strong for me personally, I do believe that LeBron sounded like he was whining after the game in my opinion. Neither of the two fouls in question against LeBron were flagrant in my eyes, so I don’t think it was appropriate fir James to come out and complain afterwards. Especially when that was the first time you had lost a game in over a month.
