Kidd calls out officiating with Nets down 3-2

Earlier in their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series with the Brooklyn Nets, the Toronto Raptors were the team complaining about the officiating.
Now it's the Nets, just one loss from elimination, who would like more calls to go their way heading into Game 6 on Friday night at Barclays Center.
Nets coach Jason Kidd made an emphasis of telling reporters that during a Thursday conference call.
Specifically, Kidd, unprompted, mentioned that guard Joe Johnson took 23 shots in Game 5 and got only one free throw, something he called "mind-boggling."
"If flopping is the way to go, then we have to maybe play that game," Kidd said later.
