Capella is certainly a good player.  Draymond's been playing well so far in the playoffs (though his shooting is way down and that might eventually catch up to them), but I'd be hesitant to tell you I'd take Draymond over Capella, and I'd certainly take Capella over the like Looney, etc

 

I don't know how you can say Houston is at a distinct disadvantage and they are horribly coached.  They took it to 7 games last year, and it isn't like the coach missed all those 3s.

 

They are either not as good.  Or they are badly coached.  It really can't be both.  If you are badly coached and not as good, you are not taking a series to 7 games.

 

(I'd go with not as good.)

DAntoni is overrated as a coach.

Anyone else read about Houston's "audit" of game 7 from the WCF?  What a bunch of nerdy little losers.  I'm back to hating them again, take their asses Golden State.

Bunch of ****es. They do anything and everything possible to initiate contact. They are an absurdly unlikable team.

It’s a losers mentality when you miss 25 straight three pointers in a game and blame officiating for losing. Make a basket and stop worrying about creating contact in some ridiculous, unnatural way.

And this is what triggers me the most, Dantoni basically said in a postgame presser "the refs admitted that they missed like 8 calls" who cares. make your shots. i saw that game. The Rockets were missing shots and turning it over when they could have easily gotten back into it. they were like down 2 late and they kept missing shots. don't blame the refs. play better. 

 

I often don't say this but the rockets have no case here. the league is not conspiring against you. golden state is just damn good. the level of talent between houston and gs is a GIGANTIC gap, I've said this time and time again. It has nothing to do with officiating. GS has a stacked roster.

The rule is clear.  If the defensive player lands in a forward position from where they left off in away that interferes with the offensive players landing, it should be a foul.

 

Green is behind the 3 point line when he leaves his feet and across the 3 point line when he lands, and he interferes with Harden's ability to land.

 

It should have been a foul.

 

I'd love to see them call it that way.  I've written many posts on how the rules have been changed to give the advantage to the perimeter offensive player, but it is clear the NBA disagrees and there currently doesn't seem to be a widespread push to change the rule.

I didn't say the kickout was natural.  If Green goes straight up and Harden's feet get tangled up with Greens legs and that affects Harden's landing, then that's not a foul.

 

But that's not what happened.

 

Interestingly, the NBAs 2 minute report agreed with the non call on Dray against Harden. It said Dray would have missed Harden if Harden hadn't extended his legs. So perhaps there is wiggle room with the rule now?

Yeah, I saw that, which is why I let it go.

 

From my view of it, it looks like Draymond comes down in his landing zone even if he doesn't kick out.  Harden kicks out, but he has to pull his legs back under him to land, and Green jumped forward and is where he lands.

Tbf I'm not sure the NBA 2 minute report does anything good anymore.

 

Steph Curry was probably correct in saying that there are several dozen missed calls in a game, every game. You have to play through them. Easy to say when you come out the winner, but it doesn't make it less true.

Btw...Scott Foster has been assigned to be head ref for game 2 of the Dubs/Rickets game. 😂

 

I think the Rockets ****ing got an appropriate response from the NBA.

The Rockets are losers and James Harden is the worst and most overrated "star" in sports history.

Harden shoved Draymond with his off arm then kicked out both of his legs on the jumper to try and cheese for a call.  He is the cheesiest little **** of his era.  Draymond could have flattened him on that play and I would have been fine with a no-call.

James Harden is that dude at the gym who ruins the game with too many suspect calls.

...

The way Harden pleads for fouls on jump shots can feel like someone calling offensive fouls in a pickup game: technically allowed, he said, but weak sauce.

Harden has to win tonight or the clowning is going to gain momentum.

He's not gonna win. The fact that Foster was named Special Guest Referee for this one at the last minute (classic Vinnie Mac Corporate screwjob) all but guarantees that this will be a night to remember 😂

The league is adamant that Foster was scheduled for this game before the playoffs/this matchup even began.

 

But you don’t have to believe that.  Kinda more fun if you don’t...

Infinitely more fun if you believe it but just prefer the other storyline, because it sounds awesome.

Giannis has shot more free throws (16) than the Celtics (14) through three quarters.

I like the town letters and the design on the front but when your colors are gold and blue...and you pull out some grey stuff?  C'mon.
