It shouldn't be allowed. Doubt if he will suffer any kind of consequences.

The "specter of favoritism toward the thunder" was raised long before this... just ask Grizzlies fans.

You know, when you see Zach get suspended for that love tap on Adams and now this, you know sh&t is real and the NBA is really trying to work their strings to get OKC to the finals. It's just so sad that this great league is tarnished by the people who run it.

The NBA had better fix this perception because every board I have read -- including Lakers boards -- say that the League has rigged these games.

Notice that this whole "comeback" was set up by fouling out DeAndre Jordan. It was a multi-pronged fixaroo attack. Those late game layups by Floppy and Floppo were only possible without a Clipper rim protector. This is something that has rarely been mentioned.

The whole thing stinks.

If the Clippers go down, I want them to take the league's credibility with them. I want someone, anyone, to straight up knock Durant in the crotch Ibaka style from last year. See if a suspension happens. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

This is really disgusting. The NBA should be embarresed and ashamed that they allow this to go on in the PLAYOFFS!! But who am I kidding, they just want their golden boy to get to the Finals to face Lebron.

I would have ZERO problems with one of our players doing something violent against one of theirs. Say in game 6 and we are down a considerable margin. The only negative about that is the player who commits this act will have a bad rep that will follow his career. So why not have the guy who already has a bad rep in Matt Barnes do it?

we're stretching things a bit here.

brothers didn't tell CP to avoid a foul and get a turnover instead

If we get bounced and Adam Silver allows these referee shenanigans, he better make it up to this franchise in the off season. Lebron to Clips or RIOT! haha.

OMG. The perception of collusion, favoritism, rigging is right there in front of us. This is not right. The NBA league should do something about this to save face. This has been a travesty of monumental proportions. The only way in my mind that the NBA can rectify this is to allow a do-over of the last 11.2 seconds. What say you, Adam Silver?

We have another mother franker in brothers. He's following the footsteps of Delonte west. Meanwhile Steph Curry's mom is still the hottest NBA mom

Repped High Quality Post

The only way I'll ever support Sterling speaking in public again is if he blows the whistle on all the rigged officiating in this league on his way out. He's been around so long that I'm sure he knows all the dirt about it.

Repped. That is GENIUS. Yes, of course he knows everything about the officials. That would be awesome!

Here's the NBA's statement. Nothing helpful in there at all. I do think it's interesting that the video in the link doesn't include a zoomed in-slow motion view from the sideline, the view that Brothers lied about not being there. Such BS.

I guess we'll have to follow Doc's lead and move on. The NBA is gonna cover its a$$ and that is that.

This episode has definitely tainted my view of the NBA.

It would be one amazing accomplishment if the Clips can somehow get past this and actually go on to the NBA Finals and win a championship in spite of the poor officiating, clutter, and distractions they've had to endure. CP as Finals MVP would be total redemption and and an "up yours" gesture to the refs.

Brooks said he saw 5 replay angles, but the refs thought 2 inconclusive angles were good enough for a pivotal playoff game.
