I think Cousins got ejected for the same thing a few games ago. Those plays I think a flagrant is fine, but incidental contact shouldn't be an ejection IMO

Oh Matthews is out for achilles soreness. Wonder if that is the same achilles he injured before.

I really like Matthews, but with KCP in, the rotation/minutes is just much better with one guard out.

I think its because he already had a tech.
Isn't a fragrant an automatic tech?

Not enough Caruso. I know we're winning but he needs to play more.

Also, I'm a Lakers fan but the refs are on some BS tonight. The PJ Tucker call was wrong. To compound it by giving him a technical was horrible. The Wall one just now was questionable, and I didn't think Wall was that demonstrative. To give him a T was weird. I also didn't agree with the Flagrant 2 on Cousins. He's clearly swiping down at the ball and just hit LeBron's head by accident. Maybe a Flagrant 1, which would have got him ejected anyways because of the previous tech.. but yeesh. If I was a Rockets fan, I'd be mad.

They called it a Flagrant 2, which I thought was a horrible call. I would have called it a Flagrant 1. However, that would have ejected him anyways because he had a previous technical foul.

Feels like were running layup lines against this team.

Might as well sit Davis and Bron and see if Schroder and Trez can win it for us.
