Professional sports in 2019 has come to this: The Houston Rockets had Game 7 of the 2018 conference finals "audited" and issued a report claiming that referees changed the outcome of the game in the Warrior's favor.

The article painstakingly goes through all of the scenarios and makes it clear that Houston's methods are, umm "suspect" to say the least. One has to wonder though, is this a new type of strategy to influence the refs in the current series against these same two teams?

Rockets simply need to stop whining and focus on winning.

Any NBA team could audit any Game 7 played on the opponents home court and come up with the same result.
