    We need to CHANGE OUR SCOREBOARD keeper. MDA said we had a foul to give, then it changed to 4 fouls so they had to yell out at the last minute NOT TO FOUL...but we actually had a foul to give. I know who this dude is and he doesn't like the Rockets. It's just a job to him. He has messed up, at home, against the Rockets, many times over the last few seasons. THEY REALLY NEED TO FIRE THIS DUDE!!!

    Not sure how you know it was "on purpose." We don't really know if it was on purpose or not. Is Harden really so stupid to elbow a guy in the face at that point in the game?

    Yes!!!!!

    Guys he tripped PBev as well. That play was masterfully dangerous. Glad he missed that layup.

    Its the Harden flagrant foul that they thought it did not count.

    It's probably already been said, but I. Thomas pulled down Trez, then kicked his feet up to trip Bev on the Horford drive. Fitting end for that dirty little punk!

    If that's true, this needs it's own thread.

    The Scoreboard keepers job is to know that that doesn't count. It's an offensive foul, doesn't count against fouls to give.

    Well you can check the rule book or the interview again,

    but I think Mike said the 4 fouls on the scoreboard is indeed correct, its a bit confusing for everyone anyway.

    Of course, as a coach, he should call a timeout to clarify with the refs also.

    Nope...this is from the NBA rule book:

    Section IV--Flagrant Foul
    a. If contact committed against a player, with or without the ball, is interpreted to be unnecessary, a flagrant foul--penalty (1) will be assessed. A personal foul is charged to the offender and a team foul is charged to the team.

    Guys pretty simple really about the flagrant foul. Harden was trying to protect ball, but Smart the flopper position his face in a way to sell a foul, just unluckily ran his face into Harden elbow. It was Smart trying to create some contact to sell a flop, nothing more. Granted Harden could have done many things, it was his fault though for not realizing he had a flopper defending him.

    Then I apologize and stand corrected. Never knew that any offensive foul could be considered a team foul as well. So I guess he was right. Again, my apologies.

    That last play was filthy. Missed layup was karma. Good.
