In one of the more bizarre sequences you'll see this season, the refs took away what looked to be a made dunk from James Harden after it went through the hoop and back out.

Rockets got robbed hard here

This reminds me of a basketball game I was in when I was a kid. The net had came loose on one side - I shot a three pointer that went all the way through past the rim, but caught the part of the net the had came loose, and bounced straight back up through the rim and out. I thought at the time if the ball cleared the rim it was good (and since no one else new the rule for sure either it counted LOL) but I guess I was wrong.

the reason the dunk didn't count wast because of the refs but because it didn't come out the net. that's the NBA rule for scoring.

The ball went in through the top of the hoop and out through the bottom, like all dunks do. It should count!

This ref is so fucking blind. IT WENT THROUGH, got STUCK in the net, so when it went through, the net took it and rose it up. Common sense ref.

We gonna kill the refs when James himself didn't see at first that it went it. If he thought it was in he wouldn't be fighting to retrieve the ball. Maybe it's his action that threw off the ref. I think they need to reverse it tho

The Rockets SIMPLY LOST THIS GAME...they were up 104 to 89 at this point...they were up 115 to 109 with 48 SECONDS LEFT IN REGULATION...how 'bout play some defense ( I forgot this is a D'Antoni 's defense ), take the ball to the hole for easy shots and maybe some "and-1", and run the clock out!!!

Lol why did he chase the ball? He made it seem like he missed it, if he would've dunked then walked away none of that controversy would've happened. Either way great win with comeback for Spurs and bad calls (like always) on refs

If you pause it, the ball is on the outside of the hoop. It didn't go back out. It went around the hoop.

In tennis if a fall looks out they can calculate it down to the millimeter to make sure. In basketball they can't tell if a giant ball goes through a giant hole.

Wrong. Clearly Harden thought the dunk popped back out as well based on how he pursued the ball after the ball popped back out.

It clearly went in. We are looking at triple overtime at this point. The Rockets are correct in protesting this.

What am I looking at somehow he made a dunk and it got back out and the ref is going to call that Out of bounds that's Tuff like if you look close enough it look like it went in put this on slow motion

Given all the wild things that have happened in the NBA, I never thought I would see the day where the player puts the ball in the basketball and is not given points. That’s literally the point of the game...

people pissed at the refs, what about hardens reaction to the dunk? he runs into grab the ball cause he had the same thought as the refs. if it wasnt for that they would have went on as normal. blame harden for real hes the one that put the doubt in the play. he just salty they blew that lead.
