Tyson Chandler Has One Less Technical Foul To Worry About In The Postseason
James Harden deserves an Oscar for the acting job he did with Tyson Chandler that resulted in a technical foul. I guess Chandler and the Mavericks got the last laugh because the tech was rescinded and Dallas won the game. I may be rooting for OKC in this series, but even I have to admit that the flop Harden did after a weak unintentional elbow from Chandler was ridiculous.
People have to understand that it is a part of the game though. Oklahoma City was down 19 points in the third quarter and the lead did not seem to be shifting in their favor. As a competitor, it is his job to do everything and anything necessary to give his team an edge over their opponents. That technical on Chandler forced Coach Rick Carlisle to take him out for the last 4:43 of the third quarter and the Thunder cut their deficit from 21 points to 14.
OKC needs to understand that without the free throw line and penetration baskets, they will not have a chance in this series. They may have had the refs on their side for that call, but settling for jump shots to compete with the perimeter excellence of Dallas is not going to get the job done. Maybe Harden can teach the rest of the team how to act their way onto the free throw line.
