Warriors-Rockets Game 1 officiating draws complaints throughout NBA




 

Warriors-Rockets Game 1 officiating draws complaints throughout NBA originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com

In the days between Games 1 and 2 of the Warriors-Rockets second-round NBA playoff series, the discussion is unlikely to center around Steph Curry's clutch 3-pointer in Golden State's 104-100 Game 1 win.

Instead, you'll undoubtedly encounter a seemingly endless uproar regarding the way in which Game 1 was officiated.

Depending on who you ask, the Warriors greatly benefited from some egregiously missed calls. Or, simply, the Rockets weren't rewarded for flopping and exaggerating. Or, according to some people, too much was being made of the officiating anyway.

Here's a selection of the Twitterverse after Sunday's game ...

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said after the game that the officials apologized to him at halftime for missing some first-half calls. James Harden, in a quote that's bound to make plenty chuckle, pleaded aloud to the officials, saying: "I mean, I just want a fair chance, man. Call the game how it's supposed to be called, and that's it. And I'll live with the results."

Warriors forward Draymond Green, upon hearing Harden's comments, dismissed them.

So, clearly, the Warriors don't feel bad for the Rockets, nor should they. Golden State holds a one-game-to-none series lead despite having significantly less rest than Houston ahead of Game 1.

Both the Warriors and Rockets will feel pressure in Game 2 on Tuesday. But, safe to say, no one will feel it more than the officials.

Good luck with that.
