    I feel like a lot of the same things were going on in the Grizzlies series also. Just not many here cared to pay attention to those games. I don't get why they need ref help. They are pretty good without it but it's obvious that they get away with things other teams don't.

    There is much more they need to acknowledge if they actually want to maintain any integrity regarding the officiating.

    Refs don't like to get tricked, makes them look bad. Hopefully the refs brotherhood teach him a lesson going forward.

    Prigs should make Curry not want to do that leg kick thing anymore, run through the leg next time, HARD. He'll get the picture.

    Between Green's dirty tactics, Bogut's illegal screens, and Curry's shove-offs to get separation on those 3's, the Warriors get away with murder, and everybody loves it.

    .....So me, being bored as I was, decided to watch First Take today. (Shame on me I know). However, I'm starting to feel the way Chris Hart said he felt when on the show "I'm addicted to what you two are going to say wrong next!"

    That being said...I lost it when Skip said Curry had more will, and had a better clutch gene than James Harden.

    Did...did he not watch the game? Not only did James out play Curry (Yes, he out played him, beat him in assists/rebounds, and only lost by 4 points in the point category. Oh, and also had 4 steals. He also did this playing 1 on 5. He didn't have the help of a moving screen from Bogut. He didn't have Clay Thompson to help him out on the weak side. It was just James vs the Warriors and James almost won that battle. I give up on some people and truly wonder how they ever get jobs in the first place. Skip, you know nothing about basketball, so please..stop trying.

    How about, when we play them at TC the rockets fans don't scream overrated back to Curry. Rather, we should scream flopper every time he shoots a FT. Calling him overrated is unwarranted (and it's sort of an attack on Harden with him and James having similar numbers). Calling him a flopper, well, that's sort of the truth, and the NBA confirmed it today.

    You missed the sniper on the grassy knoll. This isn't a flop, Curry was evidently shot.

    It was that play? They should acknowledge the offensive foul before too.

    And revoke the 2 points he got from the Draymond Green Ariza incident.

    Then give us the ballgame.

    Exactly James Harden had Klay Thompson, who is a top notched defender, guarding him the whole game while Curry had Terry and Prigioni on him...I would expect Curry to drop 30 on us in each game of this series.

    I still think the Rockets should let Curry get his while we shut down everyone around him. It was like the strategy the Jazz used on us in the late 00's series. Let T-Mac kill it and shut everyone else down.

    I'm guessing this is a smoke screen to show that they are really paying attention to the officiating when in reality they know they are not calling these games the way they should.

    He also had a floater mid range on either Terry or brewer where he was barely touched but it looked like he died (his and1 play where he didn't convert)
