I remember the cries back in 02. Maybe this was one of the worst games for officiating, who knows. But overall I think it is safe to say that back in his beast mode days Shaq was fouled on virtually every possession but they were rarely called. He was so big, strong, and quick back in the day teams would just grab and hold just to try and slow the monster down.
PJ would go to the press and complain about the officiating at critical junctures in a tight series just to get the refs on edge. Usually the next game would be called more in the Lakers favor. Not saying that was the case here but Phil was a master of manipulation.
As my old coach used to say... if you let yourself be in a position where the refs can decide a game, you don't deserve to win.
