Paul George went against NBA referees.

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George had several complaints with the officiating that took place in his team’s 118 – 110 loss to the L.A. Clippers Friday (8/3).

“It’s just bad officiating,” George said. “I’m sorry, just bad officiating. We don’t get a fair whistle. We haven’t gotten a fair whistle all year. … Somebody’s got to look into this. It’s getting out of hand, where we somehow just walk teams to the line. And there’s nobody that gets more contact. If I don’t speak for myself, I speak for Russ. There’s nobody that gets more contact than Russ going to the basket. And it’s just crazy.”

George, along with teammates Russell Westbrook and Steven Adams, was fouled out with four minutes remaining in the match. The 28-year-old six-time All-Star thinks there’s a general refereeing problem.

“I’m not the only one who says something about what’s going on,” George said.
