He's baaack: Scott Foster heads up referees for Rockets-Warriors Game 2

So, Giannis is the MVP of the league in my opinion and Middleton basically played seven playoff games against us past year like he was the MVP of the league.

"Kevin Durant is Kevin Durant".

The Houston Rockets feel they were on the wrong end of at least a few non-calls during their Game 1 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Sunday, but Steve Kerr says any talk of the officiating being tilted in his team's favor is nonsense.

"That's what I want", Capela said Wednesday of the Warriors.

Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul was fined $35,000 for "aggressively confronting and recklessly making contact with a game official", the National Basketball Association announced Monday. And I think it shows a lot of healthy respect from their side, and it also shows a lot of doubt in some of the guys who they've been playing along the way too.

"I will never understand the rule that everybody falls under the exact same category, in terms of whether you lose in four games in the first round or you play 25 games and you go to the Finals, that it's the same technical fouls points that lead to a suspension", Kerr said, via ESPN. That has to change for Game 2, even with Foster as the crew chief. They shot 14 for 47 from long range and were without reserve guard Austin Rivers because of an illness.

The report revealed that the referees missed on 81 calls that should have gone the Rockets way during Houston's Game 7 defeat, which reportedly cost Houston 18.6 points over the course of the game.

Klopp said he agreed with Guardiola that both teams deserved to win the Premier League but that there could be just one champion. The Terriers have lost 27 league matches so far this season. "We don't only play for being champion at the end of the season".

Told of Harden's remarks, Green said: "Huh? I ain't trying to hear that". The Houston Rockets are averaging 105.8 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 98.8 points on 41.6 percent shooting. They were significantly out-rebounded and were a -12 in points in the paint.

That means Houston have had extra time to rest, recover and prepare to face the two-time defending champions, while Golden State have had to expend more energy than they are accustomed to in the first round. Just the way it is now doesn't make a ton of sense. Klay Thompson had nine points.

The Boston Celtics seemed to have perfected their game plan to slow down the Greek Freak and if the Bucks can't figure out how to get him more open, this will be a very short series for them. Curry was cleared beforehand but Thompson had to go through warmups before Golden State's medical staff determined he was fine to play. After everything that went down with the Rockets and Scott Foster this year... He'll work Game 2 along with Ed Malloy and Eric Lewis.

"He continues to get better", Budenholzer said.

The Houston Rockets have another chance to steal homecourt advantage and head back home in a 1-1 series tie.

Paul is on a mission after he sat out the final two games because of an injured right hamstring he hurt in Game 5. The Rockets lost the game 101-92. "They're going to come after you and pick-and-roll".
