The Nets-Celtics game on Monday night is going to have a referee officiate it that a lot of fans don't like.

Scott Foster is set to be the head ref as the Celtics look to sweep the Nets and advance to the second round of the NBA playoffs. Foster is known for some suspect calls in big games.

The Celtics have a 65-59 record in games officiated by Foster, while the Nets have a 48-59 record.

The NBA world is still upset that Foster is going to be officiating this game.

The Nets will try and stave off elimination as Game 4 will be played at the Barclays Center. They'll need both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant to step it up after they both had off games in Game 3.

Tip-off will be at 7 p.m. ET and you'll be able to watch it on TNT.
