This game was marred by so many missed/bad calls by the referees. Just because the Clippers got more FT's, it doesn't mean they didn't get shafted on a whole mess of ugly officiating.

  1. Blake Griffin first "foul"- O'Neal's follow through hand went down and touched Blake's hand, should have been a no call

  2. 8:35 left in the second quarter, Darren Collison draws Klay Thompson off the ground, gets bumped on his shot, no call, results in Clipper turnover

  3. 7:05 left in the second quarter, Matt Barnes and Curry goes for the rebound, Curry falls down, foul called on Barnes, Thomson hits a 3 later in the possession

  4. 3:32 left in the second quarter, Redick hits a 3, gets hit in the arm by Curry, no call

  5. 1:38 left in the second quarter, DJ gets shoved in the back going for the offensive rebound as Redick misses a 3, no call

  6. on that same play, the ball never hits the baseline, yet the ref calls it out, otherwise Chris Paul had successfully gotten the ball and threw it off of a Warrior

  7. 2 seconds left in the half, Green climbs Big Baby's back, no call, and Davis ends up up a phantom foul 2 seconds after

  8. 10:54 left in the third, Blake Griffin spins for the left hand dunk, gets hit by O'Neal, no call

  9. 10:21 left in the third, Blake Griffin draws the foul, then O'Neal reaches out on the right arm to hit him AFTER the whistle, no tech called

  10. 9:30 left in the third, Igoudala gets an offensive charge drawn by Redick, though it probably should have been a no-call

  11. 8:55 left in the third, David Lee shoves with both hands at Blake's side as he is making his move, no call

  12. 57 seconds left in the third, Blake Griffin gets called for his 5th foul on David Lee despite simply standing there, with Lee initiating the contact

  13. Warriors scores with 0.3 seconds left in the 3rd quarter on a layup by a guy (O'Neal) who's been in the lane for 4 seconds

  14. 5:34 left in the 4th, Chris Paul layup, gets hit in the head as well by O'Neal, no call

  15. (KEY PLAY) 1:47 left in the 4th, Chris Paul gets shoved by Harrison Barnes on the body en route for the layup, no call, Warriors run the other way, Barnes then hits a 3

  16. 48 seconds left, Blake Griffin gets called for his 6th "foul", reply does not show the foul

  17. Chris Paul loses the ball with 19 seconds left due to foul by Green, no call, ball out to Warriors after review

That said, the Clippers obviously shot themselves in the foot too many times. The issues were:

  • Not securing the defensive rebound despite a good # of stops

  • too many missed free throws

  • too many missed chippies/layups

  • getting lost/mixed up on defense

  • turnovers &

  • of course the mind boggling squandered opportunities in the final 40 seconds.

In a close game like this, you have to be sharper than that. Despite the avalanche of bad calls, the Clippers still could have prevailed.

Anyways, for game 2 the guys must be better. The passion & energy were there today, but they have to step up even more on Monday. And I have little doubt that they will.

Yeah... pretty much every media outlet is saying that the refs were "too involved".

I think we got the worst of it, but even for a neutral fan, it makes for a sh!t game. The officials will get called to the carpet on this one... EVERYBODY except Duds fans hated it.

Well, now they have their advantage... maybe we can play a REAL playoff series.

Clips just became underdogs. Dangerous.

Yep, I just listed 16 bad calls, 15 were against the Clippers. Maybe I missed a few others that went against the Warriors, but I really tried to be non-biased in listing down all those non/bad calls. When you get 14 more bad calls against you in a game at home, and still should have won, you are truly a superior team. Now the Clippers just have to go out there with the expectations playing 5 on 8, play smarter, be sharper, and they will emerge victorious.

Oh and I missed the Green foul against Chris Paul on the play where CP lost the ball with 19 seconds left. So make that 17 bad calls, 16 against the Clippers.

I Am still ticked off about the result.

I got to say that number 10 is a good call. Maybe it is just me, but as Igudala was driving to the bucket (JJ was not fully set, yes that is a defensive foul) Igudala made contact with his knee first. Unless I am bias, which I am, it is the right call.

Hey gman- in that case that would make it 17 bad calls, all against the Clippers. That's a mountain to climb, and they still almost reached the top.

That mountain would have been climbed had the refs respected Blake Griffins' rise to stardome. He is in MVP talks yet refs don't respect him. See if any other ''superstar" gets called for guys bumping into them.

BTW, notice that Jermaine O'Neal is in the mix in a lot of these fouls. I have little doubt that he and Marreese "Shrek" Speights are out to put hard hits on the Clippers, especially Blake Griffin.

Shouldn't the league know this?? Have the "refs" look extra closely to that. They already complained and instantly BG gets The boot.

What irritates me more is that Blake was playing great D. Lee could do nothing at all in those 3 mins that BG had no fouls.

Agreed. The refs were horrible. But they were consistently horrible on both sides. But so so very sorry that they the Floppers didn't get as many calls as they are used to at home. I know its difficult for you guys. But that's ok. Why don't you spill more drinks on us? Might make you feel better.

David, there we 2 or 3 times where Collison, CP3 , and Reddick got their defender in the air on the shot fake , created contact, and it was a no call. Also 2 or....

I read an article on SB Nation that the same refs will be assigned for this entire series. Oh man. I hope the league gives these awful refs a talking to. They did a horrible job at yesterday's game.

Thanks for this thread David.

After reading the other thread I don't think many clippers

fans (or NBA Fans period) understand the seriousness of

the officiating of this game.

It's popular to "Not blame the refs", and say "suck it up

and play harder". But the reality is the refs have the ability to

make a team win or lose.

I've been hearing a lot of "Bad calls going both ways" as if

this means the Clippers didn't get cheated. Or "We shot more

freethrows then them"...

I suggest many of you research "Tim Donaghy"

The nba has done a great job of making story disappear, but

I followed it then and have continued to research it.

Tim was spilling the beans on how Refs fix games. It's deep.

I'll give you a synopsis in case you don't feel like researching.

1. Send superstar player of opposing team to the bench by

getting him in foul trouble - Erm Blake Griffin?

2. When the opposing team has momentum call consecutive

fouls to get them out of their rhythm. - 12-1 opening run? Blake

gets 2 terrible foul calls.... Coincidence

3. Not calling blatant fouls for opponent in CRITICAL times of the

game. -This is one I feel many don't understand. Calling a foul 5:23

in the second Qtr is a lot different than calling (or not calling one)

in 24 seconds left in the 4th qtr down by 3 and give the possession to

the other team taking away any chance of a comeback.

4. Foul out star player late in 4th or OT - Blake fouls out at 48 seconds when game

is down to the wire on a no call situation. Even if it was a foul the 5th foul was

totally bogus.

Again please don't mistake these 4 points as MINE. I'm just telling you what

Tim Donaghy exposed when he was being convicted of fixing NBA games.

Why do refs fix games?

When refs bet on games generally it's on point spread. This game had

the smelling of a blow-out from opening tip off. Refs fixed it to

close the point spread by halftime (Which is a big betting point).

And they were successful. Game was tied.

Not saying they were betting on the game, they might just

have it in for the Clippers since we got them in trouble after

that Blake Griffin ejection fiasco. Who knows?

I will say the tactics that Former Ref Tim Donaghy laid

out to fix a game were all present in this game.

Interesting.

Can't remember what time in the game, but there was a play where Klay Thompson made a floater over DJ while he was clearly being held by O'Neal. You can definitely see DJ was unable to elevate which could have been a possible block.

No, that wasn't me. But I hear that there were plenty of dubs fans representin' at Staples.

For all the whistle yesterdays and all the flopping by the Kias I'm a little surprised the Warriors only shot 10 or so less free throws.

I never ceases to amaze me how c o c k y and smart as* bay are fans and coaches are,in all sports. The Forty-Whiners, The Gnats and the Flubs. They all have big mouth coaches, big mouth players and the worst,the big mouth fans. None of these teams have won squat over years yet their inane fans believe they are championship bound every year (I think some of them actually believe they win every championship every year),until playoffs when they generally sit at home watching. If they do get there, they eventually fold like a house of cards in a high wind anyway.

Then the best is when they love to crash boards of other team when their teams accidentally win or are given a win and talk their smack about how great they. And not just NBA boards, MLB, NFL and I would be they are torturing Kings fans now too as their Sharks play a sport no one but Canadians watche.

Enjoy your one win,that is all you're going to get.

PS: I the game was so fair, I would like to see one sane GS fan list the bad calls their team got. I would then like to see Curry play only 18 minutes due to fake fouls and see how great they do when their best scorer is mysteriously taken away.

You kidding right? Curry is one of the biggest floppers there is. the guy flops on every screen he sets. O'neil flopped on that CP3 allyoop to DJ. O'neil was flopping before little ol' CP3 ever touched him. Lee flopped on the play that Griffin fouled out. BG never slapped at Lee, Lee whaled his arms as if he was hit.

This was a very poorly officiated game and the majority of the bad calls clearly went against the Clippers That happens rarely, but it does happen. Usually the missed calls are relatively equal on each side. In the end, however, even a one sided officiating job usually balances out in a long series. Be thankful it's not football where a bad game by the officiating crew can't get balanced out in the next game or six.

That said, because of Blake's strength and athleticism there are a lot of calls that are ignored by officials because the contact doesn't seem to have much of an effect on him. He absorbs the hits and finishes the play. A thinner, less powerful Blake Griffin would go to the line a lot more, but of course, that wouldn't be Blake Griffin, one of the five best players in the game.

Great writeup there Postman- repped. All 4 points of your synopsis happened during the game as you pointed out. I'm rarely someone who complains about the refs, but that was a travesty. I remember a game recently too when the Clippers had to go 5 vs 8 too and still won. But this was the playoffs, and for the refs to get exposed like that just looks bad for the NBA.

Nice, logical, and well thought out response. Yeah- laugh it off. If you thought the calls were "equally" bad, please go through the game and list all the specific bad calls that went against the Warriors. Otherwise, you're just full of BS.

With all this ref stuff having being said, bottom line is we still had a chance to win and just didn't play well enough, particularly down the stretch. Hopefully that changes and I think it will.

Adjustments must/will be made.

Kyle- yep I only listed #2 as the really blatant foul of that type, but you're right those other ones could easily have gotten a foul call as well. That's what a lot of people hate- inconsistent foul calling. Some refs call those a foul, some don't, some call it only during the regular seasons, some only call it in the first 47 minutes of the game, etc.

The reason we didn't win down the stretch is because the refs, though. CP's "turnover" changed it from a good chance to little or no chance, result of the refs who not only jipped us there but also throughout the whole damn game. It baffles me that these refs can be that bad consistently throughout the whole game and still be called professionals...

^^^^^How many times is the league gonna allow the officials job the clippers?

"Admitted there should have been a foul called"?

They also admitted there shouldn't have been a technical against Griffin on Xmas day. I believe refs just like the Warriors more.

Nobody's even mentioned Blake's hook in the final minute when Klay pulls his right arm down as he goes up. And then they really have the balls to call him for his 6th as he tracks down the miss? Total joke. Just another blown call to add to a legitimately embarrassing list of ref fails.

Wonder if that ref conspiracy is the reason Crawford/Granger/Collinson shot so badly. Wonder if that's the reason Collinson turned the ball over late in the game. Wonder if's that's the reason CP3 missed those FT's late in the game. Wonder if that's the reason we didn't get clutch rebounds late in the game. Hmmm...damn refs. This sound eerily like a Laker bandwagon story line, lol.

You know what?! Quit your bitc*ing people! We had an awesome comeback, the crowd was into it, there were a few bad calls, we made critical mistakes, I saw GO OUT AN WIN THE NEXT ONE! Warriors beat us, cause we didn't execute, why is no one giving Barnes credit for that block on CP3 and the 3 right after? We had a chance they had a chance and they came out on top!

Fair enough. But, the turning point of the 4th quarter was the 3-on-1 where CP had Collison and someone else running with him and took it hard to the rim. He didn't get the call even though there was a lot of contact. How about whenever Blake got his BS 5th and 6th foul? I stick with what I said, the refs gift-wrapped this one for the Warriors.

In every game there will be negative and positives in player

performances.

Even with all the crap....

Bottom line is we had a chance to tie

the game with under 24 secs left in the game and

the NBA has admitted the refs blew the call.

Which basically gave the game to the warriors in the final

seconds.

If you can't understand that then you need to google

How can you execute when you are fouled and the ball goes out of bounds

and you don't get the call in the last 24 seconds down by 2?

Please explain how that's a lack of execution?
