Harden is so overrated. This guy cannot perform in the playoffs and probably wouldn't perform well if it weren't for those ridiculous free throws.

He's a great player, but the Rockets are stuck with him. He is NOT the guy to build around. He was the perfect 3rd wheel to Durant and Westy.

Why did Harden just take a three like that? Does he realize he's like 4/18? Overrated. I thought this dude was going to blow up in the playoffs but he's been very disappointing. All the Houston fans, c'mon, you can't defend him after these past two performances.

Call me crazy or a homer but Harden needs to look at some Dragic and Manu film. There is no reason for him to have this bad of a performance with all that talent around him. I know he's cold but he is not attacking the rim. He's just shooting jumper after jumper.

And what is that called? fake hustle. You look like you trying but you don't want to take over. Jeremy Lin is fake hustling. It's like he got it built in his head

If someone can correct me, last player to have back to back 40 pt games in back to back road games (both wins) was Kobe Bryant.

Game 4 2001 West Semis @ Sacramento (to complete the sweep)

and then

Game 1 2001 West Finals @ San Antonio (to begin the sweep)

"If Portland would have got Durant, they wouldn't have Lillard now because they wouldn't get to pick #6 overall cause they would be that good".

Umm first of all, who the ****** cares its KEVIN DURANT. Secondly, Lillard was drafted with the pick that was traded from the BROOKLYN NETS.

Kevin Mchale, one of the worst coaches I have seen if not the worst this season. The man can't draw a play for crap and he sure doesn't know how to teach team defense.

Kind of a bad example considering they went to the WCF 3 times in 6 years. The reason those teams lost were because they were never taught to play defense and lacked a true C.

They had good runs, they also had ridiculously talented teams, Joe Johnson, amare in his prime, Nash, Marion, diaw, they were stacked. Still couldn't get it done.

The only run and game systems that won or do well in the playoffs was Dallas when they won, and spurs. Because they can execute in the half court, and were at least decent on D.

Houston is shooting poorly…or is Portland playing good defense? I think it’s a little of both…Hous shot 41fg% and 22.9 3pt% in game 1 and 43.3fg% and 18.8 3pt% in game 2….I hate pointing at a single entity…Harden, Howard, Lin or McHale…..the coaches aren’t adjusting and the players aren’t executing….and a side note since the all-star break Portland has a top 10 defense at 103 points per 100 possessions better than Houston at 104.9

And I see your point but the only reason he was bad at defense was his lack of athletic ability. But what he lacked in athletic ability he made up for with his IQ. Let's not forget he was the leader in charges drawn year in year out in his prime. There is no reason for Harden or Lillard to be worse defensively than Nash was.
