Now do I think that there are secret memos from the league office sent out to all officials? ...not at all. But I do know that if I have a bunch of 50/50 calls to....

Well not according to Paul:

Finally, Paul lost the ball on the Clippers' final possession with 0.9 seconds left when it appeared his arm was jarred by Jackson, squandering L.A.'s chance at even attempting a game-winning shot.

"No," Paul said when asked if Jackson fouled him. "I didn't even realize Reggie was there until I looked at the film and I felt like I lost it."

That was a choke of epic proportions but the players learned from it. I think in the long run that builds character. Cris Paul has proven he can get out of second round

Yep, as Doc say's it's part of the process in achieving the final goal...getting to that championship series:

"Listen, you don't win easy," Rivers said, recalling his message. "You don't win it easy. You may win a game, but we're trying to do something special here and be something special and if you're trying to stand out in any job, it's going to be hard. You're going to face adversity. And you just got to accept that that's part of the process. Yeah, this is hard, because it's supposed to be. That's the only thing I told our guys: What's going on right now is exactly what should happen to win. You have to go through stuff to win. You just got to deal with it."

It's something that his Celtics dealt with in 2008, going to a Game 7 in the first round against the Atlanta Hawks before advancing and another Game 7 in the second round against the Cleveland Cavaliers before eventually taking the title.

Tom hanks/jimmy Dugan said the same thing in League of their own to the lead when she tried to quit baseball because it was too hard -"if it was easy anybody could do it. The hard is what makes it great"

Of course it's not. People tend to overreact, coming back 3-2 is very possible.

Lebron showed us, 2012 playoffs ECF celtics, 2013 Finals when the heat were down 3-2, and in the ECF last year as well, when the heat were down 3-2 and came back to win it. It DEFINITELY is possible, with or without Lebron. We have a Chris Paul and a Blake Griffin and one of the best coaches in the league. All we need to do is take it one-step at a time, secure game 6

Home victory and then just give every ounce of energy and heart in to Game 7 and just hit our shots. It's definitely possible, it all starts with a W tomorrow night... Must stay the course and stay focused. NOTHING is impossible. Game 4 and 5 showed us that.

Did any of your examples have a game 7 on road?

Seriously? Smh! 1) CP3 tries to outsmart the game by trying to throw up a 75 ft. 3-pointer, but instead gets it stolen, instead of taking the foul.

2) CP3 fouls Westbrook on a 3-point try to give OKC the lead.

3) CP3 turns the ball over on the last possession. Had a jumpshot, but instead drove it in where the big fellas were and lost it. I'd say CP3 had a HUGE hand in that loss my friend.

F*ck off and enjoy your tainted "win", troll. If the Clips are trash, what does it say about your team that you need referees' help to beat them by a single point on your own floor?

The last I will speak of this.

I just saw on fox 11 sports segment a CLEAR as day replay of the out of bounds play. So clear that I can not believe mom hugger Tony "#12-0" brothers said they only had two views. TNT feed had at least 3 with sedeline view. NBA should be ashamed.

Plus, that rule does not apply. Also, hand is part of ball thus not a foul on Matt.

A replay of final 11 secs should be played. Has been done twice.

Lebron had to win Game 6 on the road, while he got Game 7 at home. Either way, the Clippers will have to win one away, and one at home, just like Lebron did.

Not easy, but if they can do it, people will start calling them championship contenders.

I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE IT! I've been reading a bunch of articles about this, and all these writers who are considered "NBA experts" don't know sh*t. They just keep regurgitating the rule quote that doesn't even come into play. They ignore all the bad calls, including the last foul call on CP3. It feels like everyone in the media is against us too!

And the NBA released a statement that the call was correct?!?! I don't understand! Is it just the Clipper fans that can see this???

Ironically Paul himself said that he wasn't fouled on that last play.

Who cares what he said or what he meant? The picture of Reggie grabbing his arm is what tells the story Wink

That's because he's a stand-up guy who will ALWAYS take one for the team. I've never seen him pout and whine in post-game interviews... unlike a certain 7-foot p*ssy who shall remain nameless.
