    Dude, they showed that replay on TNT and Reggie Miller called it a good call. Matthew's leg knocked Harden's as Matthews was sliding into position.

    So yeah, you can cancel that nonsense.

    he was definitely out of bounds. i was screaming my head off at a bdubs that he was out of bounds. bs that no one said anything. Having said that, it still doesn't excuse Jeremy Lin for running around like chicken with its head cut off. Hold the ball. Wait for everyone to leave. Dribble.

    Nope. Blame the NBA rule book.

    Ok, sure, he could have been out of bounds.

    That doesn't excuse Lin for dribbling with someone right behind him. It's high school basketball...

    At least the Finley call came with the Rockets down though. If the refs got this one tonight correct, the Rockets retain possession and have the lead. This is a much bigger blown call IMO.

    Don't let the truth stop you from hating Rockets players.

    Forget the out of bounds, for a moment...... What could and should Lin have done differently on that play? He was going full speed dribbling with the outside hand, and it was an absolutely incredible play from behind by the Blazers defender.

    He could have called a timeout.

    I don't think you can replay an uncalled out of bounds play because there is no "call" to review. It was just a continuing live-ball situation and both teams played on.

    I don't think they could've reviewed it cuz the play went on and the Blazers hit that three. It's just a straight up blown call and the Rockets were the ones who unfortunately got screwed.

    Nope. There wasn't a whistle on the floor to stop the play. Refs missed a call so play goes on. Can't be reviewed.

    That gif is inconclusive, it might look out of bounds but there is no way to tell really. Why are there no other angles? wtf tnt

    There is no question here that refs blew the call. Just watch the replay: it's undeniable.

    Yet people are still gleefully blaming the player, THEIR OWN PLAYER. The same player who has come up big in OTs of game 1 and 3.

    The refs have been relentlessly bashed by Rockets fans here all series long. But on this obviously blown call, they get a pass?

    I'm just wondering... could McHale have called the timeout or was Lin, with the ball, the only one who could do it?

    We missed 11 FTs. Missed several layups (for God's sake, Asik, just dunk the darn ball!). We dribble too much; need to set off-ball screens to open up passing lanes; our TOs and difficult, contested shots off the dribble are killing us.

    Post the video/gif and take another look. The Refs aren't always out to get the Rockets regardless of what you think.

    Nobody knows what the hell can and can't be reviewed anymore.

    Why wasn't the Dwight phantom call off his knee reviewed?

    These refs are complete **** and have ruined the playoffs.
