Refs seem to love it. And we are in Hollywood after all.

Watching the replays Harden falls 80% of the time he shoots a 3.

I hate to laugh at this but it’s true. Hard for me to believe pros can be this bad at the line. Particularly LeBron and Lonzo.

I don't think Lebron will ever be good at FTs unfortunately I read some analysis somewhere that says Lebron naturally fades away with his jumper, and you can't do that with FTs

The Lakers are having no trouble getting to the line. They just aren't that great at making them.

Lakers shot 27 fts. Rockets shot 32 fts. What's the complaining? Maybe if we made a couple more fts and Lonzo hit a couple of 3's, we would have won. We played great today just came up a bit short at the end. Harden needed the game of his career for them to beat us. We can walk away from this game with our heads held high.

Lol if Lakers flopped like the Rockets do, Lakers would’ve had 40 attempts and 5 more Rocket TO’s

I was about to say... Lets learn to shoot free throws first. I think pee-wee basketball classes are still open around LA and the Inland Empire.

Harden has a basic 2 week flopping clase, it then goes on to intermediate and advanced. No use throwing Zo in there he can't buy a FT, but if we keep KCP he could be a candidate....

The league/refs clearly started giving LeBron warnings about two weeks into the season that they would call a lane violation if he stepped in on his FTs. You can see it on tape. He’s stopped doing that and it’s messed up his rhythm and his shots are short.

Lebron is good at flopping. Maybe he should start doing that again.

Interesting how the refs were really biased towards Lebron before he became a Laker, but now he's not getting those calls anymore.

Remarkably, LeBron has a better FT% than Hart, Ball, Ingram, Rondo, McGee, and Svi.

LeBron is averaging 7.6 free throw attempts per game. He has averaged more than 7.7 attempts per game since 2012. Per minute, he hasn't averaged more free throws than this since 2010 when he was in Cleveland.
