    I don't understand why he's tripping out about that 3-pt foul. Jrue Holiday obviously hit Harden on the arm and it occurred right in front of the official. He didn't have a good view and then made body motion that Holiday had both his arms to the side of his own body when he didn't..

    To be fair AD and Cousins don’t get many legit call more so Cousins. Having said that Davis has a tendency to shoot a lot of jumpers and seldomly bigs that shoot a lot jumpers get calls in the paint. Refs just view them as less physical or whatever

    isn't this like the 3rd time a player/coach has complained about us in recent weeks. Smart, Doc,now Gentry's about to get fined.

    Also, although they allowed us to maul him at times in the 1st half, AD was getting every call especially in the 4th.

    It's been a trend for coaches to bitch and moan when rockets win in close games.

    I remember when the Rocket's said the same thing about Harden. Harden had to learn to stand up for himself...and so does AD.

    Now days, sometimes I think Harden stands up for himself too much...he needs to temper it a tad.

    Doc and Gentry are desperate to get to their team in the playoffs and every loss is a big deal to them. Compare that to the Rockets who are just cruising and slapping these bitches left and right..I can see why they are so butthurt

    Maybe Anthony Davis should bitch and moan so they can win games lol. Seriously speaking, the majority of foul calls on Harden are legit. Refs want to swallow their whistles at times so it's necessary to bitch about it so they don't.

    Your move, Tom Thibodeau.

    Let's not forget that Gentry was an associate head coach for the Warriors as recently as 2015. He has seen the pinnacle of bitching and has returned to preach about it.

    Steve Kerr shook
    Glenn Rivers shook
    Marcus Smart shook
    Damian Lillard shook
    Alvin Gentry shook

    I'm glad the Rockets have the rest of the league shook. :D

    I get people like to bitch about Harden, but an entire arena and team tripping over a call that was clearly right it still strange.

    My favorite part is the lower third graphic on the longer clip showing that the Rockets shot a whopping 6 more free throws than the Pelicans - in a game where the Pelicans were intentionally fouling at the end.
