    What a joke.


    1/30 is a big deal.

    But I can give you 9 points the Rockets would have easily had if the correct calls were made. I can give you another 5 or 6 point swing on moving screens.


    If someone from our team doesn't speak out, I question it's character. I question it's heart.


    The NBA is a trash league.

    The Rockets couldn't do it because it wasn't in their identity but I would not have let the team shoot a 3 tonight and demanded they go inside knowing the game was rigged. My guess is the pace wears them out.

    Disney gets their Warriors finals. Curry is practically a cartoon character for kids and families. They want to appeal to a wide audience. A man that looks like a prepubescent boys who shoots 3s appeals to casual people. The world is corrupt.

    no point in watching until 2020 or something.

    nobody can beat a team with 4 all-stars and ref help.


    time to watch the stros and soccer.

    I'm with you, I think I'm done. Unless we get fanduel back in Texas I'm done with basketball for a while. Probably a couple of years if ever

    Just enjoy the regular season. They only rig the playoffs as necessary.

    No issues. Please go watch the fake tough guy, eggball where eggball texans routinely get their ass whooped with 2-14 seasons and 0-30 HUMILIATION at home thanks to a garbage franchise leader in JJ FATT

    I think the reason why they were shooting so much partly is because they were getting hacked on drives and no calls. My god that Eric Gordon no call pissed me off. I'm so angry.

    OP, I agree. After this sham... how can we have any faith in the league? There were 13 either-way or phantom calls for the Warriors and there was 1 for us in that 3rd quarter... I had my tally book out after game 6.

    4 straight years with the same finals match-up? No, thanks.

    I'm so sorry CP, you deserve so much more than this trash that the NBA keeps forcing.

    I'll keep the regular season on as background noise, otherwise I'm done. This was my first year I didn't pay for NBA league pass, and I didn't miss it. I just have so much other **** to do/watch than **** reffing, 3 or iso ball non stop from every team and **** reffing. I became a hockey fan this year, watched a ton and it's just SO much more entertaining than the NBA.

    you know i hate to admit i feel the same way.

    we aren't popular enough to make the finals. that's what it came down to.

    we had enough to win if healthy. give me CP3 and luc and give them iggy and we win. but even with the injuries, we had enough to win if they didn't shave 15 points tonight.

    That's what I'm thinking too is that I should quit on the NBA, but we all know that if LeBron ends up signing here then we will be paying attention again.

    The refs will always be a factor but as a whole the rockets were not making their shots. I blame the whole team

    Does anybody know how to download the full game? I want to make a video with the momentum swinging bad calls/no calls from this game. Trying my best not to break everything in my apartment.

    I'm heartbroken for CP3 and the rest of the team

    i'm the exact opposite on this one. the shots missing is part of the game. even cp3 going down is part of the game. but to have 15 points shaved by the refs and to lose by less than that number is unacceptable. if harden gets 7 FT's and 3 points that foster took from him, do we lose by 9? if we had those points KD and steph don't play so loose and confident... we don't play so desperate from 3... totally different game.
