The Houston Rockets aggressively used the Hack-a-DJ in the first half of their Game 4 loss at the Los Angeles Clippers. Jordan attempted 28 free throws in the first half. "Personally I don't like it," said James Harden. "But a lot of coaches have different philosophies on the game." RealGM

Rockets forward Josh Smith: "It's a decision that the coach made, and you have to just roll with it. Whatever he decides to do." Howard: "I don't think that was the reason (they lost the game). I don't think it had an effect on the game." For McHale's part, he said that Howard's early foul trouble inspired the move. "We were just trying to see if we could muck up the game a little bit," McHale said. "We didn't. We came back in and we kind of had to play small, so we just thought maybe we could get them out of their rhythm a little bit." USA Today Sports

Right about the time Kevin McHale and his Houston Rockets were dying the death of a thousand Hack-a-Shaq cuts on Sunday night, the man who helped Shaquille O'Neal with his free throws so many years ago had his own ailment to worry about. "I'm barfing watching this (expletive)!" Buzz Braman text-messaged during the third quarter of the Los Angeles Clippers' 128-95 win in Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals that put them up 3-1 on the Rockets. USA Today Sports

Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers said the reason his team isn't fouling Houston Rockets guard James Harden as much is because his players are pulling their arms and hands back when he drives the lane. Harden has a different viewpoint. "Do you think so?" Harden said after scoring 21 points in the Rockets' blowout 128-95 loss to the Clippers on Sunday. "I've got a couple of scratches on my arms to show you. But it is what it is." ESPN.com
