    I thought this thread was about the Rockets being better than the Warriors. Which they are.

    Are we still complaining about the refs?!?

    Get over it. Make 25% of your 3's and we win.

    I see your point, but everyone deals with losses in their own way. There's nothing wrong with saying the refereeing sucked if it did. If it was just one play that's one thing, but this was several hose jobs one way and automatic gifts the other. The way the two last games were called influenced the outcome of the series no doubt.

    Anyway, the cyberx thread is way more exciting.

    HOU in fact made 39% of their 3's in game 6. this was the game they were leading by 17 after the 1st Q, and then mauer & malloy went apeshit with bs calls against them. harden got zero FT attempts in the second half of this game, despite driving to the basket and getting fouled over and over and over again.

    HOU also made 35% of their 3's in game 1. this was the foster brothers game where ariza was called for his 5th bs foul a couple of minutes into the 3rd Q, and then durant suddenly got hot.

    so we can see that draining 3's at a decent clip is not necessarily a formula for overcoming the referees' control of a game.

    I always assume the refs are against the Rockets
    I mean, they let Utah and San Antonio makes plays after the buzzer in the 90s..

    I'm not got to pretend the Rockets won the title.
    i'm not going to pretend we didn't get out coached by not making any adjustments for two winnable games.

    We had the formula to win, but an injury occurred to our second best player. That's not being out coached in my opinion. You don't fire a head coach or even an assistant over that. It was just bad luck.

    Oh I don't think we should fire out our coach.

    Yes, I know we were missing Chris Paul, but you can pretend the coaching was good, it wasn't.

    Golden State goes on a massive run, no time out called.

    PJ Tucker finally hits a 3, Kerr calls a timeout.

    When the entire bar of Rockets fans in Houston, Houston proper, the inner loop, is screaming for a timeout..

    yeah

    the offense got extremely predictable , yes no Chris Paul, but Harden ISO on every play?

    easy to figure out.

    But that's the way me and 30 people saw it..

    We won last Monday night end of story. I won't bother to relist the reasons in the post below yours. At least a 22 point swing is more than didn't help. Go tell me which games you win with the refs giving that to the other team. At least they could put on the right uniform. Players are human beings, you think you could play an entire championship game knowing you had no shot to win and would get fouled every time in the paint while the other team smiled because they knew it too. The Rockets have nothing left to prove. The Warriors received a championship that belonged to the Rockets. That can happen again. We were 0-6 against Foster this year. Didn't matter who we played. Explain that one. We can go back over the years if you want and find the same results. 2005 playoffs Game 3 Foster, Game 5 Brothers. https://www.chron.com/sports/rockets/article/Rockets-05-playoff-series-fixed-disgraced-1590928.php It happened before, it happened again, it will keep happening until we do something about it. Look at Marley's quote after the game. He knows.

    This is me right now. I was furious at the lack of balanced officiating and felt it had a huge effort on the final score, but its in the past now and nothing can change that. Time to move on and hope that last season's success was more of a sign of things to come versus a flash in the pan.

    you are very naive if you think more bad calls wouldnt follow immediately after we hit those additional 3s...

    If that game 7 still bothers you, it’s time to look at where your life is going.

    I was over it in like 1 minute after the final buzzer.

    So you look back and blame D'Antoni, we look back and blame the refs but you're the one that's moved on because of timeouts? Okay, if you say so.

    You're a good fan of the Rockets, but you're not superior. You just have a different way to look at it and that's great. It's the same way I feel about hollic. It's just that your ego isn't nearly as inflated as his about 'knowing' things. You don't know anything though, you just present like you think your opinion is knowledge.

    Good point on the history of Houston calls. There's a pattern we have to overcome to get where we want to go! Onward and upward.

    I , the Rockets fans at the bar, the national media , and buddies of mine who are Lakers fans called out D Antoni for not calling a time out on a massive run

    But you can pretend it’s only me who through D Antoni was weak in the last two games

    Random dude on the internet saw the same game I saw

    So our choices would be to boycott the league or to continue supporting the Rockets.

    I wonder if we could be calling out the refs if we make four more threes and win Game 7.

    On the other hand, I certainly felt something strange in the way Games 4&5 were officiated in our favour. There were many calls that didn't go GSW's way in our wins
