Rockets GM trolls Steve Kerr over 'disappointing' officiating talk

Steve Kerr pretended to flop like James Harden before talking with reporters on Monday

Steve Kerr pretended to flop like James Harden before talking with reporters on Monday

Now even the coaches are flopping.

The incident occurred with 4.4 seconds remaining in the Rockets' 104-100 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the league slapped Rockets guard Chris Paul with a $35,000 fine on Monday for "aggressively confronting and recklessly making contact with a game official". "I don't remember people falling down on 3-point shots all the time when I played".

Disappointed as he might be, Kerr's mentioning of deception could be seen as a direct shot at Harden, the reigning MVP. Harden bemoaned the lack of a "fair chance" following Game 1.

Harden lamented Sunday night that he wanted "a fair chance" from officiating after he said referees missed calls all night, but the National Basketball Association reported that officials didn't miss any calls against Harden in the last two minutes. Paul picked up the rebound and attempted to pass it out to Eric Gordon on the sidelines, though the ball was tipped and Gordon was out of bounds when gained possession.

"It's disappointing because the focus should be on the two teams playing extremely hard", Kerr said. We watched the tape, both teams just got after it and competed.

Harden was referring to a few instances in the game where he thought he was fouled on three-point attempts, specifically in the closing moments of the fourth quarter when Warriors big man Draymond Green made contact with Harden on a three-point try, but nothing was called. But, you know we just watched the tape upstairs. This is how it goes. I mean, this is how it goes. "There's all sorts of gray area".
