Legendary Warrior and Hall of Famer Rick Barry joined “Mornings W/ Joe, Lo & Dibs” on Tuesday to discuss Golden State’s Christmas Day victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Asked about a pair of controversial non-calls on Kevin Durant as he locked down LeBron James in the final two minutes, Barry says the Warriors caught a break.

“I will say this, I’m rooting for the Warriors all the time, the Cleveland Cavaliers got hosed,” Barry told Dan Dibley, John Dickinson and Daryle 'The Guru" Johnson. “I mean, LeBron James got fouled on a bunch of plays that they didn’t blow their whistles and they should have blown their whistles.”

“They were fouls and he should have been at the free-throw-line — not that it would have changed the outcome of the game necessarily, but man oh man did Cleveland get hosed on some of those calls.

KD offered his own take on the situation during his postgame press conference:
