That video makes me furious. I don't know how anyone can watch that and honestly say the refs didn't purposely determine the outcome of that game.

50 free throw attempts for the Lakers. 50!!!!!. That's more than a free throw per minute. The league average is 22 per game. It's not like the Warriors went bat s**t crazy and started hacking away like it was prison ball. They played conventional defense.

f**k the refs, double f**k the NBA, and triple f**k David Stern. I don't know why I follow this sport sometimes. It can be worse than boxing.

wow thats terrible
I seriously wish that game didn't involve the Lakers, so I could point out the absurdities in that video without people thinking that I'm doing it simply because it involves my favorite team.
Lol those all looked like decent calls in the moment. Notice most of the calls were when lakers players' were driving to the basket. Yea maybe the refs got some wrong, and some were ticky tacky but thats how it goes and fouls tend to be called more when players drive the lane.

That game was officiated so poorly, it boggles the mind . NBA basketball can be so much fun to watch, such a great team sport, but this crap really devalues it. Cannot wait until Stern is gone.

Bingo. The pick on Curry and the Ezeli foul late were particularly egregious.

Yeah. NBA is the shadiest major sport. A ref even got caught fixing games and mob ties. lol

Tim Donaghy admitted he fixed games for the NBA more financial reasons.

Some of the calls were so-so (the Beans push off should've been a no call, but he did shove off) but others were pretty blatant. The amount of phantom calls Kobe gets is laughable. You don't need to be a basketball genius to know that that game was getting called in favor of the Lakers. 50 free throws to 16 is absurd.

Please...you'd sound just as foolish if it were the T'Wolves and you tried to "point out the absurdities." The only absurd thing going on here is the so-called officiating that was witnessed Friday night.

Some are trying to make it sound like Warriors were just living from the perimiter, when in fact they were 11 for 21 in the paint, while the Lakers were 10-19.

Even when conceding the Lakers poured it into the big guys down low more so than the Warriors, it's either an extremely intellectually dishonest sports fan or an utter fool who would try to claim an exceedingly high number of fouls weren't called on the Warriors, many of which were questionable at best.

You just do not get disparities like this...FTs attempted: Warriors-16, Lakers-50...Fouls: Warriors-33, Lakers-17. In the 3rd qtr alone, the Dubs were lighting it up, 14-24 from the field, but every time they're about to widen their lead, here comes the whistle. The Lakers were 6-12 on FGs in the 3rd , but 14-18 from the line...NINE fouls called on the Warriors, ALL resulting in FTs. Only 3 fouls called on the Lakers for just 2 FTs for the W's. On the night, Bryant shot 16 FTs and Howard 22...22! Even Gasol had 8, which is double what anyone from the Warriors shot.

I'm not heavy into the conspiracy theory thing...but it is a fact the NBA markets their game much more on individual stars, and without a doubt there's matchups they'd prefer to see in the playoffs over others. I wouldn't go so far as to say the game was "fixed," but I do believe there was a bias, i.e. anything that just closely resembles a foul on one of the Lakers' Big 3 gets called. This was one of those games where it was so blatant, so bad, the NBA should at least address it.

They are lucky they are a deep team.

I am also hearing that iggy opt out of his contract and might be headed to somewhere else I love this because my friend is a nuggets fan and he is talking so much s**t about how the warriors are an easy matchup for them

Well said.

Dub fans are claiming every foul was bull but the one with Kobe in the air and not even touched? The moving screen by Howard and Blake shoots? The foul on Ezeli? You can't even make a small case that those were correct calls.

There were a number of legit fouls called on the Warriors. But it's the abundance of glaring BS calls (and non-calls) that are the problem. They simply just did not commit 33 fouls...low to mid-20s would have been about right.

I know the Dubs didn't play a perfect game, and despite it all, they still had a chance to win at the end. And no one is a bigger complainer about the W's than me when they fail to build on leads, or do get a big lead but piss it away, bad shot selection, too many turnovers, etc. But the fact is they balled their a**es of on Friday and outplayed the Lakers in just about every facet except for being the referees' darlings.
