Rockets ask NBA to rescind Chris Paul and Mike D’Antoni’s technical fouls from Game 1 vs. Warriors
The Houston Rockets have reportedly asked the NBA to rescind point guard Chris Paul and head coach Mike D’Antoni’s technical fouls from Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors on Sunday, according to Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston.
The Rockets want the league to rescind the first technical foul Paul picked up. The All-Star guard picked up two and was ejected at the end of the game.
D’Antoni, meanwhile, picked up one technical foul for arguing with the ref.

The Rockets weren’t happy with the way the refs were calling Game 1. They felt the Warriors weren’t giving James Harden enough room to land on his 3-pointers.
This is going to be a long series for the refs. Both the Warriors and Rockets arguing calls all game long. Houston is hoping Paul isn’t suspended for Game 2. He made contact with the ref after he was ejected, although it looked incidental.
Game 2 of this series is on Tuesday. The Rockets only lost Game 1 by four points. If they focus on the game more and don’t react to ever missed foul call, they could steal Game 2 at Oracle Arena and take home-court advantage away from the Warriors, who have already lost twice at home in this year’s postseason.
