    This is the age we live in, something happens ONE TIME and people overreact to it, the nets are fine, stop it. If it were the case we would have heard about them by now, it should've gone to replay, the refs blew the call plain and simple.

    as soon as the defense jokes came I'm outta here. He's one of the best defenders we have and he hasn't been a below average defender since 2015

    I think they should just get rid of the nets period, who needs them anyway, they just make things worse

    It’s okay to miss a call. We all human we all make mistakes. But when refs refuse to admit they fucked up, that’s not okay.

    Capela and Rivers both scored equal or more than Westbrook while having less than 10 FG attempts compared to Westbrooks 30 attempts.

    The nets are there for visibility. Easier for the crowd to see made baskets. Otherwise why have a net at all

    The rockets played bad after the un-counted points.
    The didny let us challenge it and made up rules to not look at it.
    Regulation and 2OT ended on a Harden Offensive foul. Interesting.

    Harden trying to manipulate the rulebook so much to the point where hes trying to get 2 for 1 buckets now.

    In all honesty tho the refs have been complete trash the entire season so far. They have video playback so they don’t make these kind of mistakes and yet it happens like wut?

  • Fred Turner

    Take down the nets. Think of how many times you'd have to stop the game to see if the ball passed through the rim,but your dunk will go in.🤷‍♂️🤪

    After the whistle blower ref came forward about how officiating leans towards positive or negative reffing on specific players given behind the scenes nba meetings that allow refs to be overtly bias to the point of betting on certain outcomes, and with newfound hate for harden coming from even the TNT bunch, I have to say that this game seemed rigged. Ive seen the same offensive foul late innyhe game called a blocking foul - and with that absurd dunk call - its like pundits of the NBA Are here to protect the refs, and create plausible deniabily with their scewed analysis to ultimately protect the integrity of the league- to the point of placing blame on inanimate objects like a net.

    Harden is one of the best scorers in NBA's history but he's not a 🏆 caliber. Harden is not thirsty for 🏆. He care about scoring 😰.

  • Meester Chris

    Go to chain nets, that way Harden can shoot free throws every time the light off the net reflects into his eyes.

  • Andrew Goorahoo
    Andrew Goorahoo Month ago +1

    The fact that all these people coming on here saying that the NBA wont do anything about it and compare it to a blown foul call etc. what about 3pt shots are ruled 2pts or vice versa, it is gone back and looked at in the replays and changed based on the REPLAY FOOTAGE, this call should have been treated the same way. and no i am not a rockets or harden fan, a fan of the game and the right thing being done.

    after the missed call it was still 8 minutes left in the 4th quarter and they are up by 14. 2 points is going to change the fact that they blew a lead?

      The Truth buddy I don’t think you watched the game. The game did go to overtime. Double overtime to be exact. The score was tied after the end of regulation, that’s why people are saying Houston should be rewarded the win

      Well to be fair they did lose by 2 points, if that counted they wouldn’t of gone to OT

    steals are more like a symptom of not playing team defense sometimes. harden steals are usually him hedging or hanging back or waiting for the opportunity and usually he's just out of position and letting things slip by.
