    I'm not sure you could've missed my point harder if you tried.

    I bet Cuban ordered Carlisle to make those statements. No way, a guy that played on the 80s Celtics can honestly make those comments. He's just pissed his team is a collection of the biggest p*****s to play in the NBA this season.

    If the refs make the game less physical both ways, then Harden will make a killing with FT's in the 20s. Give them a dose of what they want.

    this is what portland did to us last year, always hitting, always colliding, always pushing, i think they call it playoff basketball.

    Let's be fair. Refs made more mistakes to Rockets favor in game 3. Game 2 was opposite. In overall series the refereeing is pretty equal to both teams. they should not complain.

    Did Cuban teach Dirk to complain or the other way around?

    Yep, watched it slow-mo. It's not Dwight pushing, Harris grabbed Dwight by the wrist the entire time, pinned it against own chest, then pull on Dwight's arm making it look like a push.....and then flops out of bound.

    There were back-to-back plays involving Dwight/Devin. On the first, Devin completely flopped. That's the one where he came up holding his arm and Dwight holding his head. IIRC, Dwight came down with an offensive board on that very next possession -- basically by pushing Devin into the Mavs bench -- and Ariza swished the 3. That's when Carlisle went nuts, and I'm not sure how you can argue Dwight didn't push him. It was clear to me in real time and even more clear on the replay.

    That said, it's ONE suspect call and the Mavs have gotten plenty in their favor throughout the series as well. Good and bad calls on both sides, but I don't think the officiating has been horrific in any one direction. Carlisle extrapolating one play to suggest Dwight is generally playing "outside of the rules" or whatever is pretty pathetic and a sure-fire sign of desperation. I thought he was better than that, tbh.

    Typical--it's never that their team got outplayed, they're always the victims.

    Devon's arm to Howard's face was suspect. ....

    I want to hear these two classless pansies in Cuban and Carlisle say they got beat straight up. But, we won't be hearing that. They just can't admit they lost these 3 games fair and square. It's got to be something else or someone else's fault. These two are weak sauce.

    Cuban is a powerful force here. I hope that McHale and Morey understand that and respond here that Dwight gets hacked and physically punished and Dallas is getting away with a lot as well. And the the refs if anything are biased towards the Mavs.

    If they don't it could affect not only how the refs call games 4 and maybe 5, but also how they ref the Rockets in future series.

    So happy Dwight has matured and not let this nonsense get to him, like 3D said on NBA TV. Yes there has been some physical stuff, but not at all to the point of dirty or whatever. I actually expected a lot more technicals, flagrants and what not because how these teams hate each other. We are a mature team, they are a bunch of whiny mf-ers.
    Never thought I'd see Carlisle cry like this.

    What about that sequence where Chandler was pushing around Dwight (looked more like blatant scuffling trying to bully Dwight) several times with an arm shove flail on the rockets offensive end and then it goes to the Mavs offensive end where he did it again. And, they called a foul on Dwight after all that? I saw a T that should have been called in chandler on the other end for it and blatantly pushing Dwight around. Even Dwight had a look like wtf during that whole sequence and he was called for the foul after all that? Go watch it for yourself! There were no calls and bad calls on both sides. To say otherwise is a lie. Ultimately, players have to make plays at the end of the game to win. Harden did and Ellis did not.
