Wish the 2006 Finals one was still available but yea similar to that one you can see every little touch foul, 50/50 call going in their favor

At least the Thunder were the recipients this time. Now they know how it feels to play 8 on 5.

With Harden's pathetic performance, they were bound to lose the series regardless of the fouls or FTs...

I LOVED Fish's reaction at 9:30 or so. Exactly how I reacted.

BTW, I wouldn't call the series "rigged", but the officiating definitely was TERRIBLE, and it definitely was a big factor in Miami's favor. Game 2 was decided by a terrible no call on Durant on the final shot. The ridiculous foul call on Harden put the nail in the coffin in Game 3, which was also kinda decided by having Durant on foul trouble throughout the game, which in itself was ridiculous since the fouls they called on him were PATHETIC.
I'm not saying if the officiating was fair OKC wins, but I definitely think the series goes back to OKC for a game 6 and very possibly a game 7.

Having said that, they ALL flop. It was disgusting to watch. All of them. Both teams are FILLED with floppers. It just so happened that Miami got more calls or actually more key or crucial calls.

The refs HEAVILY favored the Heat. But I thought the Heat played really well. Every player on the Heat contributed, whereas for the Thunder, apparently what MWP said against Harden was true (all beard no brain).

In my opinion, the Thunder get the most preferential treatment out of all teams in the NBA.

Sometimes I will agree that extreme preferential treatment was given, like game 2 of the 2008 Finals where Boston got literally every call against us, we couldn't even look at their players wrong. In this case though, the Heat just got more calls, some were bad, but I just saw plain bad reffing flat out for both teams, that's just the NBA today. The Heat in this case also got more calls because their stars constantly attack the hoop, the Thunder just shoot jumpers all day long, except for Westbrook really, and I would say he could not buy a call that one game he kept attacking. The Thunder overall though, get more calls than any team in the league, so I don't feel sorry for them, they got a wake up call in the Finals, they got shown a thing or two by the old veterans, and I enjoyed it despite not wanting to see the Heat win.
