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.
Perfectly stated. We know that there will be incorrect calls in every game. It's the sheer number of them that has us upset.
50 free throws is a stupendous number. And I don't want to hear that crap that the Lakers drive to the basket more than the W's. We've played teams that are quicker, faster, and attack the basket a hell of a lot better than the Lakers, and we allowed nowhere near 50 free throws. The league average is 22 per game for Christ's sake.
It is virtually impossible to reach that number unless:
a) Warriors intentionally fouled an absurd number of times.
b) Officials were itching to blow the whistle.
I think we know the answer to that question.
