    Because NBA is the WWE. It's just entertainment. It's nor meant to be taken seriously. If you are taking it seriously stop wasting your life. There's flaws all throughout the game.

    Truth be told that Portland shot clock is dodgy every time we visit there. Been noticing it for years. I bet it's the same dude!

    Na F-that. How u start the clock late on a last second shot? They cheated. With that said, bad coaching, Moreyball & Jeremy Lin are the main reasons we lost. The officials were horrible all series

    To your point, here's the number of minutes each team was in the lead during the series. *These are rough estimates based on the play-by-play record for each game.

    Rockets: 203 minutes in the lead
    Blazers: 50 minutes in the lead

    Doesn't change the fact that the Rockets blew more than one game in the final seconds, but I think it does suggest that the Rockets are the better team, especially when you consider that Harden was a net negative for most of the series.
