If you happen to live on the East Coast, there’s a good chance you crashed before the end of a thrilling Game 5 between Oklahoma City and Los Angeles. The two teams duked it out like heavyweights, with the Thunder prevailing for the comeback win, 105-104. What allowed OKC to get to that point, however, is questionable. A controversial out-of-bounds call gave the Thunder the ball, and then another controversial foul call gave Russell Westbrook three shots for the lead.
After the game was all said and done, Clippers coach Doc Rivers blasted the use of replay and stated that his team was “robbed,” while fans’ reactions poured in on Twitter. Following is a collection of the best tweets from an unforgettable Game 5.

Unemotional take from last night (still jacked from #Thunder win): Doc is right, ball should have been theirs but was absolutely a foul…

#Clippers hosed by the officials last night. It’s a win-win for the NBA: more punishment for D Sterling and league darling K Durant saved.

These upset #Clippers could use a Shelly Sterling hug right now. She says she’s been there for the ups and downs for the team.
