When the Thunder closed out Denver at home, they shot something like double the number of free throws, and only won because Durant got hot at the end. Last night, they also shot double the free throws of the Mavericks and lost because they weren't hot enough at the end and the Mavs did just enough to keep the lead.

Moral: even when STERN tries to fix the results with his REFS, it all comes down to which team makes shots. Of course, STERN's league is a JOKE. I mean, it's not like the Thunder got hosed at the line in Dallas. So, why does the Thunder need the unfair advantage? Might their owner's standing with Stern have something to do with it?

I realize the 'purists'/Stern *** kissers will retort that the Thunder go to the basket more. Right. Nowitzki basically wasn't hacked during the entire game last night and he was taking it to the basket with abandon.

Stern sucks and it's nice to see him not get it his own way in this case.
