Thunder’s Paul George fumes at NBA officiating: ‘Somebody’s got to look into this’

first_img NBA wrap: Rockets end 76ers’ 28-game, 100-point streak in win “I don’t understand it. It’s a piece of s— being on that floor. We’re giving everything we got. We’re playing hard. We’re getting grabbed, we’re getting scratched, clawed, held, shoved. And there’s nothing for it. The officials just get to walk out, and there’s nothing that penalizes them for not officiating the game the right way.”I come out here and I do my job, and that’s to play and be a professional. I don’t know if it’s [NBA commissioner] Adam Silver that’s got to [look into] this. We expect the officiating to be professional as well.”It’s just got to be called right. When we step on that floor, we [have] got to feel like we are going to get a fair shot, a fair chance.”Thunder’s Paul George blasts off on referees after fouling out in loss to Clippers pic.twitter.com/rYnBCqm9bv— Ben Golliver (@BenGolliver) March 9, 2019George acknowledged he was likely to be fined for his comments, adding: “I’m going to lose money on this. We speak up, we lose money. There’s nothing that I can do to change that. It is what it is. There’s gotta be a change, but there’s nothing that I can do.”Thunder coach Billy Donovan said his team was guilty of “too much fouling.””Our guys are playing hard and competing,” Donovan said, per ESPN, “but there is no reason for Lou Williams to get to the free throw line 20 times”We’ve got to know that. Our guys are playing really hard and are really competing, but we are fouling too much away from the ball when we don’t have to.” “It’s bad officiating. I’m sorry, it’s just bad officiating,” a clearly infuriated George told reporters. “We don’t get a fair whistle. We haven’t gotten a fair whistle all year. Somebody’s got to look into this.”It’s getting out of hand, where we somehow just walk teams to the line. And there’s nobody that gets more contact. If I don’t speak for myself, I speak for Russ. There’s nobody that gets more contact than Russ going to the basket. And it’s just crazy.
