Even the TNT crew had to take a second look at one of the horrendous out of bounds calls. There was a 2 or 3 minute period there where there were no less than 3 calls (viewed in slow motion on replay) where the crew got it completely wrong. It was right in the middle of a Houston tear.
Sure, the Lakers played dreadful ball and didn’t deserve to win. But you have to at least give them a chance. Tonight, the refs were like the Rockets’ sixth man. That always makes things tough.
Well done, though, Rockets. You had a championship caliber team up against the ropes and didn’t let them get back in it. Not an easy thing to do- we’ll get you back later this week.
