Rockets’ Chris Paul not concerned about possible suspension

Chris Paul, Rockets

Houston Rockets star point guard Chris Paul isn’t concerned about getting suspended by the NBA for making contact with an official.

Paul was ejected at the end of Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors on Sunday after picking up his second technical foul. The All-Star guard says if he did make contact with the official, it was “incidental.”

The Rockets lost Game 1 to the Warriors by a final score of 104-100:

The Rockets are not happy with how the officials officiated Game 1. Houston believes the Warriors didn’t allow James Harden to properly land on his jump shots from the 3-point line. Head coach Mike D’Antoni was arguing with the refs seemingly all game.

Paul played 36 minutes in Game 1. He finished with 17 points, three rebounds and four assists before getting ejected while shooting 5-of-9 from the field and 3-of-6 from beyond the arc. The nine-time All-Star also had five turnovers.

For the Rockets to win this series against the Warriors, they are going to have to stop complaining to the refs as often as they did in Game 1. At times, it seems like Houston is more concerned with the refs than winning the actual game.

Game 2 of this series is on Tuesday.
