    Expect the league to file a protest.

    Classic soft defense from LMA.

    It was actually a pretty soft dunk by Harden but LMA wanted nothing to do with it lol.

    Harden dunk does not count is ridiculous. The refs doesn't have sportsmanship

    And how. His last step while dribbling was 5 feet outside the arc. From there, he took 3 strides and then went up. Even if we're being generous, he finished the gather above the top of the key.

    But none of the refs whistled it. And how could they, after their debacle in San Antonio? It's the payback dunk.

    Thought you were allowed a gather step plus 2 full steps

    • no travel
    • watch the slo mo at end of OP video
    Both feet are off the ground and dribble is still alive, here. That lead foot has yet to land. That lead foot will be Step 0, since no feet are on the ground in this picture.

    This is Step 0 ... the gather step. He takes two more steps.

    I like when Worrell ends a call by giving up on words and just yells. "Here comes James... James with a big st-OOOOWWWWW!"

    I guess James has retired from the nosebleed celebration. Damn. I kinda liked it actually. Didn't stop Hartenstein from imitating it for him after the play though!

    I enjoyed it a lot more than the chef/stirring the bowl meme.

    Harden after a awful first half stepped it up in the second half. He had 20 point second half

    The first dunk that never counted was so ferocious that it bounced back to the rim.

    That’s borderline. You could freeze frame it and see where the ball is being cradled in his left hand before the “zero step” has hit the floor. Could go either way on that one.
