The Rockets’ Game 1 loss against the Warriors just got a little more salty.
The NBA’s Last Two Minute Report noted Monday that there was no foul on James Harden’s 3-point attempt by Draymond Green with 10 seconds left in the game.

“Harden (HOU) draws Green (GSW) into the air during his shot attempt. Green jumps in front of Harden and would have missed him if Harden hadn’t extended his legs,” the report stated.
In the Rockets 104-101 loss, the league did concede it missed a loose-ball foul on Stephen later right after the Harden-Green incident, on top of a missed travel call on Klay Thompson and another no-call on Curry that should have fouled him out of the game.
Harden was unhappy with what he deemed was a missed call, saying “I just want a fair chance.”
“I just want a fair chance, man. Just call the game the way it’s supposed to be called and we’ll live with the results.”

Green was quick to clap back at Harden’s comments, essentially saying he was being hypocritical.

“I’ve been fouled by James (Harden) on a James 3-pointer before. I ain’t trying to hear that,” Green told reporters after the game.
