    They might not be getting all the calls their way like many think. The refs hate when teams openly complain about their officiating.

    The over exaggerating flop by harris did not sell it for me. If he would not have flopped he might have got it.

    I actually think that the blatant baiting of Howard by Chandler and others, the obvious I-can't-get-a-rebound-so-I-will-flail by Dirk,...all those antics are catching up to them and they are getting a backlash from the refs. They have no credibility anymore when there is real contact.

    If I'm a ref, and I know you are trying to fool me every time, I'm going to be very skeptical even when there is real contact.

    The unfortunate thing is that Dallas can latch onto a couple blatantly wrong calls in Game 3 that didn't go their way. Personally, the one they are preaching about the most wasn't as blatant as it looked on replay. I thought Dwight's arm was on Harris as he was falling out of bounds. At full speed it looked like a horrible non-call.

    Anyway, they are going to scream and whine about Dwight being too physical and then cite a couple of terrible calls that have absolutely nothing to do with the physicality of the game as evidence. I agree with the commentary about Chandler pushing and shoving just as much as Howard, but I don't think the games have been "playoff" physical compared to what I've seen allowed in years past (particularly last year against Portland).

    I think there were 4 or 5 pretty bad calls in game 3 and more went our way than didn't. If you look at the series, I doubt we've seen an advantage. If you look at the last decade, the universe owes the Rockets a big favor, and Mark Cuban a s*** sandwich, so keep up the good work refs!! I'll sleep just fine!

    Game four may get nasty. The Mavs will no doubt come out with a goon mentality.

    35 to 28 in favor of the Mavs. And that's with 6 or 8 of those Rockets' attempts being intentional Hack-A-Whomever fouls. The refs didn't cost the Mavs this game.

    I just re-watched it. Pathetic flop. Loose ball from rebound going out of bounds. Dwight has best, closest position as he runs to get it. Harris is trying to run backwards and is losing his footing on his own. A player has the right to hold his arms out in space if he is in position and in that space first. Are you going to penalize a guy for being strong? Is he supposed to let his arm go noodle when Harris runs into it? He's supposed to let his arm push in like a turnstile to let Harris through for the ball? His arm has the right to be there. And then Harris runs into his arm, loses his balance 'cause Howard arm is like an unmovable oak branch, and then flies backward into his bench like he just got a double barrel shotgun to the chest. Pathetic.

    And on the same side of the court, 5 seconds before this incident, Howard catches the ball and spins to the basket. As he is landing with the ball and spinning, Harris runs into and headbutts Howard in a nasty collision. And of course Harris then flies to the ground in an endless attempt to flop.

    Then the very next play down the court, Amare puts an elbow into Dwight's chest.

    Cuban is a clown.
    Carlisle is proving himself to be one with comments like that as well.

    Houston is a better team, and they can't admit that

    Fine Dirk for all these flops (that ACTUALLY get whistles) if Cuban wants to complain about this. It sounds like Cuban is one of the most "influential" owners because he's freakin yelling at the commissioner during a playoff game. Adam Silver should be embarrassed.

    All day. I was told I had Homer Glasses on for watching it on replay multiple times and coming to the same conclusion.
