OKC backers feel the need to document every foul that goes against them and say nothing about the makeup calls that usually occur right after the calls they complain about... Durant gets called for a questionable foulso  they get Battier for a foul going for the rebound off the foul shot.   The refs are constantly balancing it out.    There have been bad calls that have gone against the Heat.. Chalmers got a clean poke-away block on Harden on a 4th quarter play and was called for a foul... Lerbron was held in mid air on one drive in the first half that was a clear foul... Durant was out of control in transition on a play in the first half and charged into Battier and they called some off the ball foul on a Heat player.    The refs let both teams play more last night.. the Thunder just didn't make enough plays.

There are a PLETHORA of examples of how the referees have been helping out the Heat this entire playoffs. I can't even begin to explain or know where to start in explaining ... The entire first 5 games of the Pacers-Heat series... you got those 3 T's on Boston in 7 minutes of Game 1 for complete nonsense, i.e. Ray Allen grimacing and turning his back on refs after a bad foul call and Ting him up while the refs let LBJ and Wade get away with literally cussing and bitching/moaning RIGHT IN THE REFS' faces after each call that doesn't go there way, no matter how obvious or correct of a call it was ... Then you T up KG and Coach Rivers for giving the ball back to the Heat and saying "come on ref", respectively?!?!
Then you got Game 2 with the no-call on a clear flagrant at Rondo's head by LBJ ... then I forgot which game it was but LBJ was hanging on the rim for, yes I timed it, 6.3 seconds, no Technical?!?! 
Then, you got a no-call on LBJ when he smartly purposefully fouled KD to make him earn the points at the line rather than an easy regular side 6 footer.
And we got Game 4 yesterday ... somehow Perkins, Ibaka, Collinson, and Sefolosha went to the line, COMBINED a total of ZERO times. Westbrook who scored 40+ pts and is known for his physical driving went to the foul line a combined TWO TIMES! How do you score 43 pts and only shoot 3 free throws?!?!? There were an assortment of fouls the Heat clearly committed on Westbrook, Durant, and Harden that the commentators themselves were directly pointing out as being clear fouls that were not called. 

But this one takes the cake.... this may have determined Game 3...

How do you NOT T up Spoelstra for this? He was literally 2 ft away from Westbrook ON THE COURT with both feet. I understand when coaches get on the court when the action is on the other side, but this is blatantly against the rules and was not called.

Thank you Heat for dominating game 5 and putting the ref argument to rest
