    This is outrageous. People complain about Harden not being aggressive enough. He drove 21 times into the lane and got ZERO foul calls.

    You actually have a group of people (constant complainers to be fair) who are bashing him for not settling for mid range jumpers. Think about this for a minute. The new attack on him is that he shouldn't be trying to get to the basket he should just settle for mid range jump shots.

    Outrageous. That game was outrageous. Durant took 10 FTs in the first quarter all on touch fouls. Harden got knocked down on 3 different 3 point attempts with no foul call. The only time they called fouls was after Chris Paul and D'Antoni berated them halfway through the third for only calling 1 foul on the Warriors. They called a few more and then put the whistle away again.

    It's too obvious they just want the game 7 because they're greedy, as if having CP3 out wasn't enough for them.

    They are disciplined on Hardens drives they are not reaching and he is initiating the contact, they might have missed a couple but the majority are not fouls, they adjusted, he needs to adjust.

    This is why teams get tougher on him in a series as they learn his tricks and get better at countering them.

    21 drives no FTs well that is ok according to some here on BBS but seriously the game was at the Oracle what do people here expect. As for game 7 being at the Toyota Center it will be more of the same I suspect,seems the refs will let the players decide a game 7(I am hoping). The game will come down to the dreaded 3rd quarter, IF the Rockets can have a big lead at the end of the 3rd the Rockets will win!! H-Town Crazy!! Go Rockets!!

    Harden drove 21 total times throughout the entire game?

    Golden State’s strategy is to show a hand or two in the air to the ref before a Harden drive. Their tactic is to run their body through Harden. On the way to the rim and at the rim. The refs are too hard wired to look at hands and miss the body all the time. All the while the actual reaching comes from the help defense

    They aren't taking him across the arms ... but no way are they staying vertical .

    When someone slams into laterally ... that's a foul . But they aren't calling it .

    That's what I've been screaming on Reddit. One team is driving based and the other is a jump shooting team.

    The difference in free throws should be significantly in our favor almost ever game.

    I wonder if you watched replays that showed you were clearly wrong here whether you would admit it. I doubt it.

    You used to kill him for taking jump shots, now you kill him for driving. Basically you will just criticize no matter what.

    Multiple times he was hacked across the arms (as usual). Steph Curry holds him every time he's switched on to him and gets called for nothing. Draymond Greed literally went and stood in the restricted area to block his drive. They plow into his body on almost every drive now. The list goes on and on. On four three point plays he was knocked out of the air, they called one of them a foul.

    EVEN REGGIE MILLER CALLED THE OFFICIALS OUT.

    Pretty blatant. Oh well. League wants the Warriors. The ratings will be better. I guess I understand.

    I see no foul there, Harden is pushing off with his off hand and initiating contact.

    Do you not see a foul at least on draymond .

    He does not go straight up and down .he definitely steps into James. Also you can see his hand push harden down .

    Green's been doing it all series. The refs are afraid of him it seems.

    ok so at least we agree donkey was given unusual leeway to park in the paint. adding the 4 bs offensive fouls called on us, the various phantom fouls awarded to kd/curry, the numerous moving screens ignored (they actually called one of them which was a pleasant surprise) -- what is your threshold for the number of 'missed' calls favoring only one of the teams for this to be considered a rig job on the whole?

    edit: i remember you posting last night that EGO was getting no calls when hacked on his drives all game -- so please factor those 'missed calls' in as well :D
