The Houston Rockets didn’t completely pull a UCF and claim a championship, but they came awfully close.
Just hours after the Rockets lost Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals to the Warriors on Sunday — a game that had its share of controversy — ESPN reported that the Rockets filed a memo to the league that claimed NBA officials “likely changed” last season’s NBA champion.
According to the report, the Rockets audited Game 7 of the 2018 Western Conference Finals and determined that 81 instances took away 18.6 points from Houston.
Seriously. The Rockets had a team of analysts go through tape and issue a memo to the NBA just to whine.
