NBA Issues Statement On Dwight Howard's 6th Foul In Game 1 vs. Blazers wp.me/p3CpBY-Qr

John Canzano

NBA says officials should have given Dwight Howard free-throws with 10.8 seconds remaining in OT. Foul was called on Howard vs. Freeland.

Joe Freeman

NBA says Freeland should have been whistled for foul on Howard. But Freeland went to line & made 1 of 2 FTs, giving #Blazers 122-120 lead.

Chris Haynes

It was play where Dwight Howard, Joel Freeland got tangled up. Say Howard should have been awarded two free throws. #Blazers won 122-120.

Joe Freeman

NBA issues statement: Officials made incorrect call w/ 10.8 seconds left in OT when Howard was called for a foul on Freeland. (cont)

Erik Gundersen

Many things that Lillard did last night such as letting the ball roll to conserve time for final possession to end 3Q were so vet-like.

John Canzano

Asked LaMarcus Aldridge if he would have been capable of taking over a playoff game in 2009. "Probably not. It wasn't my personality then."

Prior to Sunday, LaMarcus Aldridge had made two three-pointers just once previously in 595 games (reg. season + playoffs).

LaMarcus Aldridge had 1 three-pointer per every 832.7 minutes played during regular season. Has one for every 22.5 minutes in playoffs

Dwight Howard, “All we have to do is stay together, stay positive. I don’t think they did anything crazy to beat us tonight."

Great team win. Truly blessed

Dwight Howard said the Rockets didn’t win because “we didn’t value every possession.” Dismissed the missed FTs.

Before Game 1, LaMarcus Aldridge walked past Clyde Drexler and said, “I’m coming for you.” Record books, and all.

"That was a questionable last foul call on me. ... I went to Dame and said, 'Take it over.'" -- LaMarcus Aldridge

What I liked most about Damian Lillards game…. he didn’t try to force things. He mostly let the spots come to him. That was very mature.

Portlandia is #Freelandia. Portland had that out of bounds play scouted and stopped two consecutive possessions.
