The NBA's reigning MVP finished with a team-high 35 points, shooting 9 for 28 from the field and 4 for 16 from beyond the arc. Good for them. I wouldn't have either, and no amount of whining after the game is going to change that fact.
"You're assuming you can defend him", D'Antoni said before the game.
"They just came at halftime and said they missed them", D'Antoni said. They missed four of them.

"I don't know, I've been part of six teams as a player and now two as an executive or coach", he added.
Houston's GM, Daryl Morey, opened up about the officiating on Twitter. "And every coach in the league will tell you the same thing - you watch the tape and you go, 'That's a foul, that's a foul'".
