Golden State Gets Absolutely Hosed against the T-Wolves
The Golden State Warriors can certainly be annoying with all of the obnoxious winning and whatnot.
Also, it's just a little nauseating when they have the unmitigated gall to complain about something.
However, every so often, the bitching is completely justified.
Like the other night in Minneapolis:
Please have a gander at the final five seconds of overtime, which took much longer than five seconds:
There's much to unpack here.
First off, we have the foul against the sensitive Kevin Durant, which the T-Wolves' broadcast team felt was perfectly fine.
NBA continuation rules are notoriously lax, so that clearly should've been a possible game-winning four-point play.
But a referee by the name of Marat Kogut saw things a bit differently.
KD's all about the sarcasm.
That ridiculous three-ball from the corner came next, courtesy of one Steph Curry, who drained 11 of them on the night.
And finally, consider the foul called on Durant in the paint with under a second remaining as the T-Wolves' inbounds pass sailed out of bounds on the other side of the court.
Curry almost left the building after the call, but did return.
He also had a thought or two afterwards:

Head coach Steve Kerr also weighed in:
Again, the sense of entitlement oozing from every pore of the Dubs isn't imaginary, but they were the victims in this particular case.
Meanwhile, the vindictive Kogut is off to his next assignment, twisting his mustache and adjusting his monocle while trying to decide who to screw over next.
That would be some encore.
