Starting with Game 2, this is Harden from deep by game:

3/15
2/6
3/12
0/11
4/12
2/10 Tonight

Woof. They are lucky to be in a game 7 with him shooting like that. Almost makes the rough night by Boston's young kids last night not look so bad.

Seriously fuck the Warriors, and fuck anyone who acts like they did anything to earn this game. They are shitting the bed and getting blown by the officials.

Refs have comfortably handed GS at least a dozen points so far and with plenty of time to go!

I know they don't usually call the moving pick, but when it's as obvious as the one Bell just put on Harden to open up Curry for that 3, even NBA refs don't usually miss it.

Something is afoot...
I can't wait for the Warriors fans on this board to justify it by saying that the Rockets should have made their shots.

3 harden three point attempts - all should have been fouls. One of the shots went in. + 8 or 9 points
Gordon hammered for the layup - no call. + 2 points
Curry hits the three with a clear moving screen. - 3 points

That is a 13 point difference. Just gross.

And I am not a HOU fan. Probably am rooting for Curry over anything

It's disgraceful to have 4 top 20 players, and be completely dependent on officiating and cold shooting from your opponent to keep it even close. Complete frauds.

What will the refs do when they have to pick between Lebron and the Warriors?

We might actually see smoke coming out of their ears as they try to think.

What is it, you think the NBA figures more eyeballs if Warriors, not Rockets advance? Anyway, I can’t imagine a dictum coming down.
I don’t buy at all the theory that the NBA is picking and choosing who gets the calls and who doesn’t in order to determine the matchup that will generate the highest viewership.

I think the refereeing in general is inconsistent and the players know how to take advantage of it; and in the playoffs those mistakes are magnified.
