I watched both games and I have to say it was stupid the amount of pointless points made about the new T rules. To be honest it almost makes all the enegry go right out the window. I thought that when they took away the right to give hard fouls was a step backwards. I mean it was a big part of the game and I think that kind of stuff put fear into people from making easy buckets in the lane.
The Pacers and I think the sucker punch by Melo and maybe some other moments really made David do this. I don't like it though and I feel we are losing what makes the NBA great. I don't mind the fact that players can't talk with officials, but all the other stuff is nonsense and it is getting to the point where officials are going to make or break the game and not the players.
