Beard just drained a shot -- but the NBA replay system is embarrassing. Durant was out of bounds and threw it back in-bounds. How can that not be reviewable!?!?!?!?!?!?

TNT just replayed it ten times....

The Rockets may not lose again until Game 1 of whatever round they play GSW in - at which point they will shoot 0-45 from 3.

I this current NBA era the all time "I've never seen a guy like that" era. There are like 15 dudes who really have no equal in NBA history at some part of their game.

LOL this is legit the worst call I've ever seen in the professional sports world.  This is worse than the touchdown called for Seahawks against the Packers where it was CLEARLY intercepted.

Bout a year too late lol. Thibs was either gonna sink that team like the Titanic  or swim them like Michael Phelps. Not really sure where they go from here.

 

Also, maybe Thibs is just an insanely good asst coach, and that's it. Always kinda felt that with everything he did in Chi, maybe he was getting a little too much credit.

Kinda strange since they are 15-12 since they traded Butler.

I think he’s a good example of the Peter Principle. He’s a fantastic DC but he ultimately can’t run a team as the head coach and will run the plyers into the ground. He needs somebody over him to check minutes, lineups and handle the personalities while he just draws up some strategies

Yeah, but in the last 2 weeks or so they've lost some bad games- Atlanta, Phoenix, and New Orleans.  Hard to justify that if you are supposed to be a contending for a playoff spot.

I remember when people was talking about how good Thibedeoux was and how he had been treated UNFAIRLY in Chicago 

 

The fact is he was not that good of a coach

 Coaching wasn’t his only failure in Minny.  He was also team President and his desperation trades to get Butler blew up badly.

He is a classic, power hungry vampiric burnouts coach. He might be the kind of coach you want if you are a very close 2 seed that needs a couple breaks. Anything else and his teams will not last.

 

I mean it's not like there wasn't that kind of chatter when Minny hired him. Guess I thought that with KAT, LaVine (then) Wiggins, Rubio, etc, he'd find a way to get them all to take that next step. I don't think he's that kind of coach though, it seems. I gave him credit for that, seeing what he was able to do with those Rose-less Bulls teams and Butler, but I was probably wrong.

I imagine that time between getting dropped and the shot going in is one of the longest in sports. Your only recourse in that situation is an emergency call to any deity you may have once considered to force that shot to miss. Instead, you are now on the wrong side of a highlight for all eternity

Ah man, and the foul?  He should just retire, change his name, move to another country.

The MVP had 57 tonight.

Still won't win a ring because that style of play amounts to jack squat in the playoffs.

The Rockets are simultaneously glorious and completely miserable to watch. I hope every starter but Harden is injured, they go 16-2 in the playoffs and drive ratings into the toilet.

 

People will have to seriously re-think what basketball is when this experiment ends.
