NBA players add to chorus of refereeing complaints on Twitter

To say the officiating was a topic of discussion during Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals series between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets on Sunday would be an epic understatement. The two teams were called for a combined 45 personal fouls and four technical fouls, and Chris Paul was ejected with 4.4 seconds left in the game. That continued a trend this postseason of things getting testy between players, coaches and officials.

The players on the court weren’t the only ones complaining. Multiple players chimed in on Twitter with both specific and general observations. Brooklyn Nets forward Jared Dudley pointed out that Chris Paul should’ve drawn a foul call on a specific shot late in the third quarter.

I don’t like the flop but that’s a foul.. look where Livingston jump from and land, then look at his hand that contested the shot.. The other camera view shows it all

His Hand hits his wrist on the follow through and he can’t land.. Livingston foot is right where he’s suppose to land.. Yes Cp flop is ridiculous but in my opinion it’s still a foul

Dudley was joined by Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert, who pointed out that his team didn’t get the same leeway during their first-round series against the same Rockets shooters, drawing jokes from his Jazz teammates about potential fines from the league.

My guys were not allowed to contest shots like that last week…or maybe i’m crazy and it’s just camera angles
