Pelicans' Alvin Gentry Slams Officiating After Loss To Rockets

Postgame recap Rockets 107 Pelicans 101

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry says he intends to play Hill, a former starter, in a reserve role and that his playing time in his initial games back from his hamstring tear will be limited.

Harden had 32 points and 11 rebounds, and the Rockets won for the 21st time in 22 games, beating New Orleans 107-101 on Saturday night. Not have a situation where we are guessing on the biggest play of the game, where they call a 3-point foul from the corner. "You take a look at the play and tell me what you think when a guy comes up and winks and says, I got him".

"You can't guess on plays when you've got teams playing for playoff spots".

No Ola, Uber strike in Bengaluru on Monday
The strike has been called by the Maharashtra Navnirman Vahtuk Sena, an offshoot of MNS, in Mumbai as well as other Metro cities. There are over 45,000 such cabs in Mumbai alone, out of which almost 20 percent have stopped plying due to a slump in business.

Although Gentry may have a point about Davis not getting all the calls that he should, the five-time All-Star is second in the National Basketball Association in fouls drawn per game, according, trailing only teammate DeMarcus Cousins, and sitting just ahead of Harden. The controversial call sent the arena into frenzy, and also eventually earned Gentry a technical foul for arguing, which he also did not agree with.

As has been written in this space before, a few calls down the stretch of a game were not the reason any one team lost.

"What happens to us is that AD [Anthony Davis] never gets a call, he never gets a call", Gentry said. When a guy's got his hands on his chest, and he's got his hands in, and you call a three-point shot [a foul], that's not right.

They suspended the chief of a polling station near Moscow where a ballot stuffing incident was reported and sealed the ballot box. The result would extend the leader's total time in office to almost a quarter of a century, by which time he will be 71.

Gentry said he wouldn't have been as angry if Houston and other teams didn't consistently get away with holding Pelicans All-Star forward Anthony Davis as he tries to move to the basket without the ball after setting screens. Not one. You know why, because he doesn't bitch and complain about it. "You can't guess on a foul".

In the game, Houston attempted 18 free throws while New Orleans took just 16. "We are fighting our asses off for a playoff spot".

One has to think that the National Basketball Association will be forced to address this on a wide scale, sooner rather than later.
