Watch: Chris Paul celebrates after Rockets finally get landing spot foul call

Chris Paul Rockets

The Houston Rockets finally got a foul call to go their way on a landing spot play, and Chris Paul couldn’t believe it.

At the end of the third quarter of Tuesday’s Western Conference semifinals Game 2 between the Rockets and Golden State Warriors, Kevin Durant was called for fouling James Harden on a 3-point shot.

Harden was sent to the free throw line and made all three of his attempts. More importantly, CP3 was so excited about the call that he actually celebrated:

Paul was lucky he wasn’t called for a technical foul for the sarcastic display. A few other players weren’t as lucky; Nene and Draymond Green were called for double techs after getting tangled up fighting under the basket after a free throw.

If you’re wondering why CP3 celebrated, it’s because the Rockets did not get foul calls on these plays in Game 1, leading to much frustration from the team.
