Chris Paul wasn't directly asked about the officiating during his press conference following a Game 3 loss by the Phoenix Suns to the Los Angeles Lakers, but he alluded to it.

"If I was a betting man, 11 games in a row," Paul said. "Eleven games in a row."

The reference was to Paul's losing streak in the playoffs when Scott Foster is refereeing. 

Both Paul and James Harden were teammates in Houston, they each had issues with Foster. 

Paul didn't say Foster's name Thursday night, perhaps in the hopes of avoiding a fine.
