The Houston Rockets are one of the most analytically driven teams in the NBA, but when it comes to the Golden State Warriors, the Rockets have abandoned their forward thinking approach to complaining about refs.
The Rockets last reviewed Western Conference Finals Game 7 and ruled that the referees had stolen the victory with 81 missed calls or no calls. Note that the Rockets missed 27 straight 3s in this game.
Well, the Rockets have no intention of letting their flesh go with the Warriors or the Refs.
Shortly after Warriors head coach Steve Kerr ridiculed James Harden's game of 1 flop, Rockets general director Daryl Morey went to Twitter and posted a link to a 201
The 2016 article referred to Kerr being fined $ 25,000 for traveling calls. Even if Morey has tried to mention the point the warriors are complaining about taking office, the missiles will not make them look less salty by adding a link from 2016.
Kerr asked the officials to stop making travel calls. The Rockets told the NBA that they had robbed them of a championship.
This was not really a situation from apples to apples.
