    Paul George immediately going, "but it was a b as d shot though!" is the funniest part of this. I don't even care if he's right! Maybe next time don't talk so much shit and he'll just beat you...the regular way, instead of clearly going for the biggest fuck you shot imaginable

    I'm not saying he shouldn't be quiet about the shot but telling an NBA player not to talk shit is like telling a lot of them not to dribble. Talking massive shit has always been part of the NBA meta game. It's just that some of them are better than others.

    Oh, for sure. I don't want to see less shit talk. Just...sometimes it's gonna backfire spectacularly

    lillard shot almost 40% on such shots this year (39.2% on 51 30+ foot attempts); you figure it's probably a bit lower on account of the fact that he probably shot it from 36 or so feet but it's not like, a bad shot (especially since he got to take a long look at it and george mistimed his jump)

    it's a shot george was willing to let him take if he wanted to, which is probably what he meant

    It's one of those cases where it's so far out that defending it means giving up much better looks, so you just have to consider it a bad shot and allow it and hope for the best.

    Almost all of those 51 shots were quite a bit closer than what he hit to beat OKC. I believe he was 1/7 on 35-40 footers before that buzzer beater.

    Denver's been sitting consistently at +10 but it feels like they should up 20. They didn't capitalize enough on the 1st quarter.

    Milwaukee looks completely lost in this game. They can't get anything working inside and Horford is eating them alive on both ends.

    Boston finally looks like the team they were cracked up to be.

    It seems like the refs are so sick of Harden's shit that they would rather let are just going to let Thompson jump into him on three pointers as much as he wants. Anything to not get caught by a flop I guess.

    Seems they're making up for it. Bad call to give Curry his 5th foul with like 8 minutes left.

    Nah, defenders have been in Harden’s landing area repeatedly and the refs are letting it happen.

    Are players technically entitled to move forward at all during a jump shot? I feel like the rules are super duper vague here. Especially when talking about drives (where whether you get a foul or a charge is almost entirely correlated with the name on your jersey).

    I'm not saying those aren't usually called fouls, especially for Harden - I'm just asking what the rules actually say, because in reading them online there doesn't seem to be anything specific to this situation.

    Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.

    That is also true, but that doesn't make a phantom call to give Curry his 5th with so much time left any less bad. Refs definitely did seem to be trying to make up for the first half by tightening up the whistle on the Dubs in the second, but they didn't change the way they were calling the closeouts.

    A lot of these would almost certainly have been calls in almost every other game this season.

    That said, it's extremely difficult for me to have any sympathy for James Harden or Chris Paul on anything related to officiating, two incredible players who are impossible to fully appreciate because they have some of the most degenerate styles in all of modern basketball.

    Some really sloppy play by the Rockets at the tail end, they had a window to get back in it but just completely shit the bed on their own.

    Agreed. Honestly out of every team in the league the Rockets have the least room to bitch about officiating given they abuse it so freely and willingly.

    And any team facing Steph Curry also has little room to complain given the refs almost never give him foul calls for the exact same thing people are bitching for Harden about now. Steph has literally altered his landing over the years to ensure he doesn't break an ankle because defenders undercut him at will.

    I also think people are unconsciously being biased by Mark Jackson's complete inability to call a Warriors game fairly.

    That is mostly where I land I think.

    I'd like to see fouls called correctly moving forward, but for the Rockets to complain about officiating when their star player has made a career out of abusing the rules I find it an incredibly tough row to hoe to dredge up much sympathy for them.

    For the Rockets to miss the game tying shot because James Harden tried to draw a foul instead of attempting to actually make the shot in the final seconds of the game is cosmic justice being handed out.

    They lost a game to the Pelicans earlier in the season because he literally ran off the court instead of trying to score.




    The worst part is he is good enough to be an amazing player without relying on this bullshit. Players have trouble guarding him because Harden will pin arms, push off, climb on, jump into and all manner of behaviour to try and draw a foul. They're left with the choice of either conceding space to just try and avoid the possibility he would run into them, or challenging and having the above happen and giving up fouls.

    I am legitimately amazed that Kevin McHale is paid actual American dollars to announce basketball. Dude is so awful. So much announcing talent out there and this is what we get.

    The Rockets had an entire memo contending that the refs cost them a finals appearance last year and it's so embarrassing that I hope they never win another game.

    Everyone wants to hate the Warriors at this point, and the Rockets are bending over backwards to make themselves look like the assholes in this situation.
