    Foster's extra revenge game after Harden called him out last game.

    No he doesn’t....he plays for the NBA powerbrass and they want the Lakers to win. You are sooooo wrong it is sick. Have you not watched one game he’s reffed where it was beneficial for the league if a certain team in the matchup moves on???

    How can people deny what Rockets fans have been saying about this **** being rigged?

    How the hell can a ref officiate a team in 2 of their last 3 playoff games? The ref pool is not that small. So I guess Scott Foster don’t officiate Eastern conference games now?

    Expect PJ to get 2 quick fouls. Expect the Rockets guards to get no calls at the rim. Expect a bunch of phantom loose ball fouls. Expect the Lakers to live in the bonus the entire game.

    The last game Scott Foster reffed was Milwaukee vs Miami. Miami won it, putting the face of the league on the brink of elimination. Even if you argue that the league wants Miami to win for some bizarre reason, you'd think they'd want to extend the series, right?

    One last note about this....my friend used to be best friends with an NBA ref’s son and the ref used to gives us free tickets to NBA games and he was later caught doing something with airline tickets. To my knowledge he was an honest ref other than that issue, but trust me when I say that the league is ratings focused. They have 0 issues with the Rockets, it’s all ratings based.

    His last game was an Eastern Conference game of Milwaukee vs Miami 2 days ago. Yes, the ref pool is small. Why keep more people in the bubble than you have to?

    It's funny how facts are irrelevant to narratives.

    So then go officiate Toronto vs Boston or The Clippers vs Nuggets. I guess the Rockets are a priority.

    Answer the question. How do you officiate 2 of the last 3 playoff games of 1 team? Do you have an example of another ref doing that this playoffs?

    No doubt. That call had Foster incompetence written all over it. But, we can win Foster games. The idea that Foster = Loss is not where I want this team's mindset going into tonight.

    Rockets will get this one. But the screw job is set for later games.

    How is that better? He reffed the Clippers closing game of the last series too. It would still be 2 of out 3 for them if he did Clips vs Nuggets.

    Same way he didn't ref any of our first 6 games. That's the way random distributions work. If you actually care about facts, you can look up ref data on each game - you'll find other refs in the same scenario.

    Basic math is working against you here. If he refs basically every other day, he's likely going to ref some of the same teams every few games, especially when transitioning between series.

    I actually hope he puts them in the bonus and Dwight is on the floor. You counteract crooked refs by hacking Dwight and JaVale all game. Make it soo ugly they don’t want to call fouls on us. Hell I’d hack Lebron. If he starts missing free throws he misses a bunch. We can back Rondo too.

    They won't let us get a big lead today. As soon as we're building momentum for a big lead, the refs will screw us with criminally bad calls, and then uphold those calls on replay.
