Stan Van Gundy was sharply critical of the officiating following Detroit's loss to the Blazers on Saturday.

"It's embarrassing. It's embarrassing for them and embarrassing for the league," Van Gundy said of Saturday's officiating.

"I've been here for four years and many more years before that, and I've never come in after a game -- never, never come in after a game -- and talked like this. That was embarrassing," he said. "We got absolutely screwed tonight."

While Van Gundy credited Portland for how well they played, he still noted that he thought the refs made a big difference in his team's loss.

"A big part of [the Blazers'] defense -- they play very hard, I don't mean to take anything away from them -- but when you can get away with playing like that and get screwed that badly by the officials, your defense is going to be pretty good," Van Gundy said.
