    They did and said he's getting a flagrant one ! The problem is they quickly said that then spent an hour on James push off then another hour on the rockets sad faces when harden scored. Unbelievably Steven A Smith sided with Houston and told ESPN to STFU !!!!!

    So this confirms one thing, NBA officials do crappy job. Wonder if they reviewed the call on Capela?

    22 missed calls in the last 1:47! That's a screw up every 4 secs. How many of you would get to keep your job with that performance?

    F@@k the NBA and their f@@king rules. Here's a rule...why don't you quit analyzing plays in games post-game if their not going to change the outcome of the game cause it's wasting everybody's time! Do your damn referee performance reviews of games behind closed doors jagoffs!

    It was a playoff game winner and a very light push on a spin, solid no call. I would understand if he seriously pushed him but it was nothing like that.

    Now what Green did was ****ing ridiculous.

    While I LOL'd :grin:, the reason they started releasing this info was because there was a push for more transparency in officiating from the public and other figures like Mark Cuban (I think).

    Bah...people fix real world problems. Transparency means jack if nothing is ever fixed. Players work in NBA fantasy land! Why don't they just hand out lollipops at the end of games saying everyone is a winner? And, we will let you know next day who really won or lost! Suckers!

    Wow, everyone missed that clear found on Beasley on the inbounds. No wonder it was a turnover. Everyone blaming Ariza but he made the right pass, it just was Beasley was being held.

    If anything the Harden no-call was a make-up. The refs basically game the last bucket to the Warriors as Beasley would have caught that for sure if he wasn't held.

    Bay Area sports media (radio) has been roasting the Warriors for their terrible defense on Harden's game winner. The homers out here are like "yeah, a little push off, but you at least recover and contest, and where was the help?"

    They are more focused with: losing the game with the Draymond goof, getting so far behind, and decisions about Curry playing/not.

    So anyway, not hearing sour grapes out here very much about Harden's "push off." That's an ESPN thing i guess.

    it's an almost unwritten law that you don't call slight contact a foul at the very last moments of the game, when the player is attempting the clutch shot.

    if Harden's shot was a foul, than so was Jordan's famous 1998 "the last shot"

    BTW, Iggy did oversell that contact, and had already lost balance because he anticipated Harden to drive to the basket, not suddenly stop at the midrange.

    so overall, it was the right call by the referees.

    That harden push off for the game winner probably would've been called an offensive foul in the second quarter, but no way the refs call it on a potential game winner in the final seconds of a game

    that Harden "push" was nothing more than a tap.
