    Both James Harden and Chris Paul insist that there's some personal animosity coming from referee Scott Foster, and it's influencing how he makes calls against them in games. Coach Nick dove into the footage to find out if that's true.

      At 6:22, technically it was the trails primary call. We like to call it “pass and crash.”

        Great call at 4:11. Harden swipes the defenders arm away creating an advantage. Offensive foul first before the illegal screen.

          None of those harden calls were fouls for him

                          Scott Foster is a lousy official, not a biased one. There's a difference. And the idea of Harden and CP3 complaining about poor officiating when their entire game plan is to exploit poor officiating is ludicrous to me

                            Scott Foster has officiated 8 Rockets playoff games since Harden got there, the rockets are 0-8. That’s a little weird

                                        NBA players should stop diving around like a bunch of bitches . . Get paid all that money to flop around and cry about fouls .

                                              If he is biased against the rockets then why can harden still take 1 trillion to the power of 10 steps?
