    I don't like to get personal but you're too stupid to realize they don't take 27 3's if they weren't getting mugged in the paint and not getting the calls. So take your 0 for 27 and GTFO because of idiots like you the tragic truth about "playoff level basketball" gets lost with unrelated narratives. NBA Playoff basketball and referees are at best a joke and at worst corrupt. That's the truth.

    just to add to this, donkey and their other bigs have been allowed to camp in the paint all playoffs. jvg even highlighted this on wednesday night saying it's part of GS strategy because they know the refs won't call defensive 3 seconds on them anyways..

    The narrative that the Rockets were "getting mugged in the paint and not getting the calls", leading to them taking all those 3ptrs is a joke. All the summaries and that youtube video only complained about Gordon getting hammered and no-call. That was what, mid-3rd quarter? Probably halfway thru the 0-27? Rockets were up at that point, with 18 minutes left IN THE GAME, so to blame the refs for the loss is laughable.

    Rockets also missed at least 5 WIDE OPEN 3ptrs during the stretch.



    Going to blame that on the refs too? Too dizzy after getting hammered on those drives, right?

    Moving screens and 3 secs almost never get called against Kerr and his cheaters.

    PJ and EG's 3s were the only ones that were open. Ariza's is definitely not. and on GG's 3 pt attempt, it was originally closed out hard by Young. GG had to reset, dribble, and shoot off balance. you can even tell by his feet and how they're set incorrectly. but im sure you didn't know that and you believe a screen shot tells the entire story

    I prefer not to be delusional or a sore loser. The golden state warriors are the 2018 nba champions.

    We couldve won if not for bad injury luck, bad 3 pt shooting, and some questionable officiating but it is what it is.

    Oh I agree there were some brutal calls against the Rockets. The Harden 3ptr being waived off, Gordon getting hammered were examples. Just saying Rockets still had a chance being up with 18 mins left.

    imo from what i saw, scott foster was not going to allow GS to lose under any circumstance. and just to touch on the brutal calls against the rockets, that treatment was also present in games 1, 2, 3, and 6 of this series as well. brutal calls against GS opponents have been a recurring theme. game 2 of the warriors-pelicans series was in particular egregiously brutal, with davis and holiday receiving zero freethrow attempts despite attempting 48 shots, mostly in the paint. every year we hear the same excuses about poor officiating, and every year it's the league's money team always on the "lucky" side of those "missed" calls.

    22 point ref job. You can point to the atrocious shooting and still look at the historically bad refereeing.
