    champions are chosen in this league as evidence by the kings 2002 robbery and last years western conference finals.

    I’m still not over getting screwed last year as fan. I will still follow the rockets with a side eye, but I don’t know how anyone can take the nba serious after last years robbery. This game tonight just reminded me how much power the refs have over games. And if u follow Tim Donahue on Twitter he already talked to some refs currently in the league that said they got orders to screw over the rockets in this years upcoming playoffs

    yep after every loss im reminded about not just game 7 but game 6. The NBA needs a governing body that should police the league. Until that happens i cant take this league serious. game 6 and game 7 turned me off to this league emotionally. I will watch, but i wont purchase merch and stuff like i used too

    I am tired of blame the refs after every loss. They just weren't calling many fouls this game.

    Except on Harden.

    When a Bucks player pushed another Bucks player.

    But I agree. They just weren't calling many fouls this game on the Bucks. I think that's what you meant to say.

    It is not the refs bricking all those 3s and walking the ball up.

    It’s to be expected.

    Just gotta cross your fingers and hope the role players make their 3’s

    Maybe Harden shouldn’t have spoken out against Foster. I think the refs are sending a message. I don’t blame the refs for the loss, but the calls were a bit suspect from the jump.

    The League is against us the negativity to James Harden is an example. But there is no excuse for not hitting wide open shots. The bucks did what they were supposed to do. There were some obvious fouls. You could see James made a concerted effort just to let it go. It was almost as if he knew they where going to do this no matter what. The Bucks advantage fastbreak is their game but our game is taking advantage of our free throws. They where letting the Bucks guard to attack the creener and the ball handler not one time did we get a call on that

    So you don't think the REFS where making a concentrated effort to keep Harden off the line?

    There were bad calls/non-calls tonight but it didn't seem like a "fix" to me at all. The Bucks are dynamic and create a lot of easy shots. We bricked everything. Simple formula.

    I don't follow anyone on twitter. Who are the refs getting orders from? And why does someone want to "screw over" the Rockets? Is Tim Donahue someone that can be trusted to tell the truth?
