    He got a technical for that?!?!?!?!? This is not a farce as Duncan's laughing on the bench ejection, but it is in the same category. Travesty!!!

    I know I'm very late to this, but just read his book and it's hard not to look at games like this and not believe him.

    When stuff likr this happens, old school BB should happen.

    Like taking Westbrook out when he drives to the hoop. How does the floor/Stansion taste Russell? (George style) Or sorry I stepped under your foot Durant whilr you were taking a jumpshot, (Bowen style) Durant.

    In short if the refs are bought and paid for (Donaghy style) then the players should take things into their own hands.

    What's the point of having a replay center in Saucacus if you make bull**** calls like this and miss flagrant calls on Westbrook?

    The refs ****ed us up the ass the entire night. **** nba & this season.

    There's never just ONE offender. Donaghy was the only one to get caught. There are way too many questionable calls for this not to be the case.

    can't half ass it. Gotta go hard like westbrook and really make it look like a foul. No way the reffs blow the whistle then.

    That's the single worst ejection I've ever seen in 28 years of watching basketball. (Putting those ejections where the officials don't see the first offender in a different category).

    IMO there was a ref out to get DHo last nite. I expect the T to be rescinded.

    Yes, it was a rotter of a cslled gme but was that a smokescreen to doa Supermanous Eiminatus?

    And then after the ejection the refs blow a and 1 call that could have been a flagrant on westbrook, only to "review" an intentional foul on beverly that led to 2 FTs. Then 2 more gift FTs to Durrant on what should have been a charge instead of a block on Brewer. Refs gave the Thunder momentum in the 3rd.

    It's really frustrating having gone from Yao(worst officiated player in the league) to Dwight who took the mantle from Yao. They just never let them play. The one thing i can say is that Dwight needs to learn from Yao and just play through it, sure Yao would hang his head in shame, but Dwight's retaliation shoves and bear hugs from frustration is worse. They don't care why you're frustrated, they only see what they want to see and that is someone not doing basketball plays.

    ^ I know people are mad, but you should see some of the stuff Demarcus Cousins has to deal with. The league simply officiates big men very poorly

    We don't play in a way that makes refs respect us.

    Anyway, it's the job of the FO to let the league know this kind of officiating is unacceptable. Why not take advantage of Les' hotline to Adam Silver?

    This has been happening for some time now.What has the FO done to defend our players?

    That was a bs ejection. BUT Dwight is not guilt free. He has established himself as a player that draws technicals so refs are more in tune to T him up. If DMO did that exact same thing he probably would not have been T'd up as he doesn't have a history of it.
