Game 2 officials announced for Warriors-Celtics

The Warriors face the Celtics in a critical game Sunday night, trailing 1-0 in the NBA Finals after losing Thursday night at Chase Center. The NBA on Sunday morning revealed the officials for Game 2.

Veteran official Zach Zarba will be the crew chief for tonight’s game, with Tony Brothers (referee) and Josh Tiven (umpire) filling out the on-court crew. Marc Davis will be manning the replay center.

The Warriors are 49-39 overall in games officiated by Zarba and 51-61 in games officiated by Brothers, whose career stretches back to the 1994-95 season. They’re 23-18 in Tiven’s games.

They have lost both games officiated by Zarba this postseason, though one was the 39-point blowout loss to the Grizzlies in the second round. The other was Game 4 of the Western Conference finals when Golden State failed to close out the Mavericks in Dallas.

Zarba is working his ninth Finals. Brothers and Tiven are working their 11th and third, respectively.
