    The NBA came down harshly Friday in its review of the officials' crunch-time calls -- or lack thereof -- in the Houston Rockets' Game 3, 97-96 win over theGolden State Warriors, saying James Harden's game-winning shot should not have counted.

    It was among five incorrect calls in the last two minutes, the NBA said in its assessment of officials' late-game performance dubbed the "Last Two Minute Report."

    On the replay from Thursday night's game, it appeared Harden pushed off Golden State's Andre Iguodala before converting a 10-foot step back jumper with 2.7 seconds to play. The league argued Harden initiated contact with Iguodala before hitting the basket.

    Are the NBA officials driving around in new caddys yet?

    Why is the NBA even bringing this up? You don't see them bringing up that Lebron travels 12 times a game, or how the Lakers were getting away moving screens all night in kobe's last game

    GS had a chance to win the game. Green dribbled it of his foot. I love how none of the Rockets players even celebrated Harden's shot. Does the rest of the team hate him, or are they just weird? I have heard Howard and Harden don't like each other. Then again Howard doesn't seem to like anybody.

    I'm a Warriors fan and I thought they played shit defense on that last sequence. Harden had a good look and hit the shot. No fucking crying allowed.

    If they didn't want to lose the game, they shouldn't have punted the damn ball with 2.9 seconds left. Or let themselves fall down by 17.

    They probably hate Harden because he is the biggest ball hog in the league and puts in zero effort on D.

    I'm far from a Rocket fan, but he also took them to the WCF last year. His assist numbers aren't bad either

    I hear ya, all fair points. But if you're gonna be called a "superstar" then you shouldn't be a fucking matador on defense. That's all I'm saying.

    It's his thing.

    Back when the Lakers were still winning, he'd start a thread every year at the beginning of the playoffs to babble about the league being rigged to help the Lakers win.

    When the Chris Paul trade got vetoed and the Lakers sank to the bottom of the league... complete silence.

    Isaiah Thomas has a very realistic chance of getting suspended for game 2 for hitting Schroder
