Don't Have Sympathy for the Houston Rockets

Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors - Game One

Controversy surrounds Game 1 of the conference semifinals series between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors. Warriors managed to edge out the Rockets, 100-104 but the big question mark from the game is the officiating. Both teams have argued vehemently that the calls weren't entirely fair with James Harden blatantly calling the officials out from the podium for nearly allowing a repeat of what happened between Zaza Pachulia and Kawhi Leonard.

Dan Patrick makes the argument that this isn't a one-sided assault against one team. James Harden has been a beneficiary of ref calls when he uses them to his advantage and Dan makes the case that there's no sympathy to have for the Rockets who had every advantage coming into this game to get the victory over the Warriors.
