Is Scott Foster Reffing Tonight?

Yes, Scott Foster will be the crew chief for Sunday's Game 7 between the Celtics and Heat. Foster is one of the more well-known refs in the league, due in part to a history of run-ins with the likes of James Harden and Chris Paul. The veteran official has also been regarded as "The Extender" due to trends that suggest playoff series live on when Foster is reffing.

In terms of Sunday's game, Foster's inclusion could spell good things for Miami. The Heat are 23-13 all-time in playoff games reffed by Foster, per Basketball-Reference, while Boston State is 16-19 all-time when Foster is part of the officiating crew.
