I can't believe Marion wasn't called for a foul on Love's last second shot attempt. That was utterly amazing. He slapped down on his arms in shooting motion.

****ing unreal

Seriously. Love was mauled on the arm. Can't believe no call. Absolutely disgraceful refereeing. Calling fouls after reviewing plays should be mandatory. Calderon should have been called for that over the back on Rubio, and then this one with Marion fouling Love in a game deciding situation.

Those refs should be fine and punished for that. Absolute travesty.

Was he behind the arc? Love would have more than likely made all of them. ****ing refs.

Lol - Why not? Which one do you use?

I'd be curious why you thought the Pels was a steal. I didn't look into the game at all - but from a surface standpoint you're looking at a very good road team/better team on a couple days rest. The Pels did play them close in Portland and AD's the right answer for LMA, but that's a game that wouldn't jump out as a steal to me.

I had the over in Detroit tonight (203), but their hilarious 4th quarter struggles made what looked like a gimme a pretty good sweat.

because PSD is anal about links.

do u know where and what s-b-r is?

On spread picks, ive created a formula (system). Im 22-10 on spread bets. Only reason why its not more games is because I usually wait until a quarter of the season before i really start to gamble.

This isn't my picks, but its a good indicator of trends so far. Usually things even out, so I wouldn't solely rely on it.

Hadn't been on it but I see what you're talking about. I'm checking out their forum.

And yeah, TeamRanking is a good tool to have in the back pocket. Confirms things like the idea to take Charlotte and the points more often than not while they still have a reputation in the doghouse. Tho' that ****ed me by a 1/2 point on a parlay tonight. You use the same Username on sbr?

username is new era. i was planning on making a website so i didnt want to use johnwall incase of infringement. I made a thread but its basically using my system + emotional bets. But still doing well.

The refs are scared to death of calling anything on Griffin cause of that Christmas game.

It's ridiculous, Griffin and Jordan are molesting our front court and no foul.

Just saw the last 5 minutes of the Wolves robbery. Wow, gotta feel sorry for K-Love.

And then Marion walks off the court like a hard ****, acting like he deserved the be the hero

Yeah its ridiculous, CP3 gets phantom calls, Dragic gets a clear and 1 near the end of the half and nothing is called. And it seems are not allowed to call anything on Griffin, quite funny to watch though as well.

We need to keep it up this half, if the Clippers step it up they can get back in the game

Twolves got screwed hard, Marion fouled Love twice on that last play lol

Maybe people will start respecting the Suns now.

Even Doc in the postgame interview said that it wasn't that LAC played bad, PHX just played great and stopped LAC from doing anything they want to do.

I had a lot of respect for the Suns going into the game a couple days ago. I thought it would be a fierce battle of 2 of the best backourts in the NBA. Then Golden State beat them by 30. Young team, growing pains. I don't think they have a roster that can contend at any point without adding a major piece, but they're a fun squad and a good team.

Just like the Warriors, fun to watch and a good team. But no shot the title with the current rosters they have. Only difference is PHX are in full rebuild mode.

To be fair, that was the only game in which the Suns came out flat this season. I don't think its fair to judge PHX off one game especially when the Suns have already beat GSW once this season.

Not saying the Suns are a contender but just don't think that one game can say whether they are or aren't.

Warriors starting unit at full strength is a top 3 D, and overall on the year a top 5 D. That's another fundamental difference that many have not caught on to yet. The team that took SAS to 6 in the playoffs last year is likely an outside contender when you factor in the addition of an Iggy + D Lee to replace Jack and Landry. Wouldn't be entirely shocked if they're playing OKC in the conference finals.

No for sure, blowouts happen. And they did get GS at home by a few. They should be a playoff team this year and don't look like a rollover to anyone.

tredigs
12-31-2013, 04:15 AM
I should add that it also wouldn't shock me if Iggy, Curry or Bogut go down for an extended stretch, the Warriors end up with 45-48 wins and miss the playoffs all together.

We haven't been getting calls in our favor for awhile. Pek gets fouled literally every single time he touches the ball.

Love is the only one who gets consistent calls in his favor, and well, you see what happened here.

Refs owe us. Game would have gone into overtime.

Annnnnnnnnnnndddddddddddd just like Hawkeye15 said the league issued a statement today that it was indeed a missed call. Thousands of people already saw it but the league thought we should know that they saw it too :laugh2:
