    UPDATED UPDATE: NBA rules that the officials indeed got it wrong... it should have been a backcourt violation.



    --------

    I can't even imagine if the Rockets had lost this game.

    What in the actual bloody hell.

    If there are any lip readers I'd love to know that ref's explanation to coach.

    Not that an explanation is necessary, but:

    Officials talking to Mike D on the sidelines like: "but you don't understand mike, the guy literally has no help out here, it's just him man, and he has another triple double"

    Refs and NBA front office want this to go to 7. Can't have the MVP be blown out 4-0

    Too bad for them, Rockets beat OKC despite playing 5 vs 8. And spoiled their party

    Oh, I was so mad when that happened. I don't know how they could miss that call. Thankfully the Rockets had a big enough lead at that point. They should however put an * next to WB's 50pt TD ;)

    Harden had 18 free throws and we're complaining about the refs? Really?

    Either it's rigged or the NBA employs officials lacking basic human intelligence and eyesight

    Which one?

    We're complaining about a blown call that everyone but the refs saw and that could've impacted the final score. If they call that turnover, the game is over.

    The refs need to release their tax returns.

    Harden drove it to the rack almost every single time, of course he will get the fouls

    It's not about the calls, it's about the no calls
