    When you get passed the angry, you start to hear in Yoda's voice Daryl Morey's words:

    "Teams who are good, win close games do they not. Avoid them they do"

    It sucks to not have that foul called, but then again, are you surprised the refs swallowed their whistles? It happens a lot in the last 30 seconds of the game.

    It happens all the time though, especially in playoff games. Hey sure, maybe LBJ gets the calls, but by no means does it mean it's common place. This isn't the first time Memphis has won on a controversial call either. I still contend the Kings game wasn't called correct either. In both cases it never should have been that close. You play with the odds if you let it get that close. Hell, even the painful Lillard shot is an example of that.

    The Grizzlies average 23.4 free throw attempts per game, they received 17 last night. That's 25% below their average.

    The Rockets average 24.5 free throw attempts per game, they received 5 last night. That's 80% below their average!

    (Points in the paint)
    Grizzlies 54
    Rockets 50

    Something smells really fishy!

    If James "MVP" Harden can only get 1 shooting foul from these two guys all night, then they should be perfect and not commit any shooting fouls against the rest of the league! Harden is a master at getting fouled while shooting, so the rest of the players in the league should just accept that they will never get a shooting foul from them!...:eek:

    What about the last 60 seconds, when Courtney Lee got his foul call on the other end?

    Cant believe no one is mentioning that Gasol clearly took three steps on his game winner. Great shot though.

    What I still can't stand about the suspension is that it is Anti-American. We don't believe in double jeopardy. The refs at the game had a chance to review it to upgrade to a flagrant 2. This is the 1st year that they also congress with a big NBA replay center that also helps them decide. They decided! Flagrant 1, no intent. How can you be acquitted, and then go through a 2nd trial? Un-American. NBA, why do you hate America?

    Q4 00:07.8 Foul: Shooting Zach Randolph James Harden INC
    Randolph (MEM) makes contact across Harden's (HOU) arm/wrist, causing him to lose the ball on the drive to the basket.


    Sucks to know that even though they admit it was the wrong call..It doesn't change anything at all..

    It vindicates Harden and the team. And all us HOU fans who have been crying bloody murder.

    They "vindicated" us for 3 of the 6 games last playoffs, and all we got was a 1st round exit. 3 games where they said "yeah our refs totally stole the game from you and handed it to Portland. Whoops! sorry bout that dawg."

    At least the NBA paid for it somewhat by having an incredibly uninteresting Spurs/Blazers 2nd round that ended in 5 games. Houston swept the Spurs in the regular season and I'm sure we would have put up a much better fight.

    Refs should be fined for mistakes in the last 2 min and the money given to the team/player.

    That will improve their eyesight fast. Or else get out of the reffing profession. There's video review anyway.
