@Oboy : 50-50 calls? Allen running over Westbrook is a 50-50 call? Gasol kicking the ball is a 50-50 call? Perk getting hacked by Allen on his game tying put back is a 50-50 call? Gasol traveling before getting fouled and then getting a third free attempt due to a lane violation is a 50-50 call? 


Don't be ridiculous.

@OKC035 : I've noticed. Notice much more effective defenders are against him when they're allowed to break the rules. Plus, Durant knows that if he gets past Allen that he has Gasol waiting for him in the paint.

@Lost Ones : He's only doing what any other NBA player could do if allowed to play that physical without consequence.

@Tvaddic: Hard to attack the basket when Durant is getting abused by Allen and Gasol never leaves the paint. That's why we're jacking up so many 3's.

@Turfright  : Not terrible because I like both of those players, but I'd rather get K.J. McDaniels with the Mavs pick to replace Thabo next year. He's a better shooter than Roberson and has more potential due to much better form.

@sammasaaron : The players should never focus on the officiating because that could very well affect how they play in a negative way and cause them to overlook their own faults in need of fixing. However, championship teams sometimes become championship teams due to blatant help from the officials.

@Tvaddic  : Exactly. People don't watch the games. Russ wants to pass the ball to Durant. He even turned it over early in the game trying force a pass to Durant. Durant needs to come get it and the officials have to call fouls when Allen gets too physical (as he often does) with Durant.

The officiating last night was atrocious. The mark of really poor officiating is inconsistency. Allen was allowed to manhandle Durant without consequence, but any time Westbrook was physical with Conley or Lee (the offensive rebound put back nullified by the "foul" and the strip at the end of regulation on Lee) he was called for a foul. Westbrook was even called for a foul for being run over by Allen!.


Randolph is allowed to travel and use his off hand to shove off to create space any time he wants to. Gasol never leaves the paint on defense and regularly commits defensive 3 second violations without consequence. In fact, the only defensive 3 second call was call on us last night. 


Lane violations are almost never called on free throws despite occurring on rebound opportunities nearly all of the time. OKC was called for one last night. Memphis, despite being guilty of the same offense numerous times, was not.


Gasol was allowed to kick the ball to a teammate with no call. Conley was then allowed to slide on the floor with it which is a travel. 


Allen clearly fouled Perkins on his game tying put back. No call. 


If you're allowed to manhandle the other team's best player without consequence as Allen does to Durant and never leave the lane on defense as Gasol does, of course you're going to have a great defense. If the Grizzlies had to play by the rules this series is a sweep.

@f5alcon  : Gasol was head flopping his way to the line. Plus Adams got called for another one even though he perfect position when of the Grizzlies' guards drove to the basket and collided with Adams.

@DJ_Yardman  : Tony Parker is not a better point guard. He plays in a system that caters to his ability to get to the rim and hit the mid-range shot. He can't defends and relies a ton on flopping.

@AIaska: They would have made a ton of money had they sold it right after signing Harden to a contract. Four star players on contracts for four years, a loyal fan base, and great management would net them a huge profit.
