The Rockets star asks for a "fair chance" from the referees as the Warriors meet with Game 1 of their Western semi-finals
"I was fooled by James on a three-pointer from James," said Green. "I think we can all sit here and complain about every game."
Green said that when it comes to ending the competitions, both teams can usually claim that they eventually got a rough deal from the officials. Green
Harden, who was a vocal critic of the officiating officer throughout the season, asked for a "fair chance" from the Refs after Houston in Game 1 of the West's semi-final on Sunday 28th. April (Monday, April 29, time of the Philippines) had lost 104-100.
Harden and the rockets were particularly upset about what they felt were several non-calls were three-point attempts.
"I mean, I just want a fair chance, man," said Harden, who scored 35 points but was 4 of 16 out of the bow. "Call the game what it's supposed to mean, and that's it, and I'll live with the results."
Harden suspected that he was fouled in two-point attempts in the second half, including by Green on, a possible attempt to tie the game 7 seconds before the end.
Green said the warriors could make the same case.
"They (missiles) may have shot 20 fewer free throws, so if that were the case we would have shot 20 more free throws," said Green.
Houston coach Mike D & # 39; Antoni supported Harden's criticism on Sunday, but did not go into detail because he feared a slap on the wrist.
"I will try to be a nice guy because I really do not want to give them the charity .I would rather have my charity have the money," said D & # 39; Antoni, pointing out a potential fine for criticism at the office.
The second guessing of the referees has been a hot topic among the players since the NBA launched the "Last Two Minute Report" in which they publicly evaluate the performance of their officials in games within 5 points in the last two minutes.
The League initiated the report to try to be more transparent.
Kendrick Perkins, a 14-year-old NBA veteran, wonders what it's all about.
"Everybody is so worried that he's called fouls, forget about trying to win the game," Perkins wrote on his Twitter account on Sunday. – Rappler.com
