After loss in Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors, the Houston Rockets criticized the referees and asked for a fair chance.

Per ESPN, Harden and the Rockets were specifically upset about what they believed were several incorrect non-calls on his 3-point attempts, on which the Warriors were allowed to close out without giving Harden the required landing space. According to Harden and coach Mike D’Antoni, the referees admitted at halftime that they missed four such calls in the first half.

According to Harden and coach Mike D’Antoni, the referees admitted at halftime that they missed four such calls in the first half.

“I mean, I just want a fair chance, man,” said Harden, who scored 35 points but was 9-of-28 from the floor and 4-of-16 from behind the 3-point line. “Call the game how it’s supposed to be called, and that’s it. And I’ll live with the results.”

“We all know what happened a few years back with Kawhi,” Harden said. “That can change the entire series. Just call the game the way it’s supposed to be called, and we’ll live with the results. It’s plain and simple.”
