Monta drops almost 50 on Durant and the Thunder and the Warriors still lose… I never play this card, but straight up, the officials cost them the game. There were about 5 calls in the last 3-4 minutes of the game that were blatantly one-sided. The culmination was a play where James Harden hacked David Lee and made an “oops, ah shit” face and put his hands up near his chest to imply “damn, sorry.” The ref standing right next to the play gave a no-call, despite D Lee’s arm being held behind his back while he tried to shoot the ball, and Harden “admitting” to the foul during the play. Then on the other end, Durant is driving to the bucket, pulling up for jump shots at the free throw line, and fouls are getting called on jump shots. I’m not a conspiracy theorist by any means, and pretty much hate those who make excuses, but this was one of the first times I’ve ever been watching an NBA game and legitimately thought “hmmm…. Tim Donaghy style shit?” Anyway, the game was amazing, down to the last 30 seconds when Durant hit a jumper to put the Thunder up 1 point. The Warriors played tough and really hung with two of the most explosive scorers in the NBA right up till the last second.
