Gotta be the shortest time a guy has ever played for a team in the NBA?

I hope Larry Sanders is still on the line.

Great start by the Rockets and they have yet to make a 3-pointer. Hopefully they can keep this up.

Anyone thinking Harden needed a statement game to win MVP, I hope you saw that first quarter in San Antonio. 18 points on 6/7 shooting, 6 assists, 0 turnovers, +16 on the floor.

Lbj didn't play to his full potential all game, so you know what that means... The ending of the 4th quarter was pathetic.

Miami to me is the 4th best team in the East, if they can get most of their players back.

Helluva game by Waiters/Ellington/Dragic and the Heat. Just gotta tip your hat and move on.

You want to talk about ice cold? Let's talk about Trevor Ariza. Four clean (sometimes blatantly wide open looks), four bricks. With those four misses, Ariza is 58 for 198 on 3-pointers so far in 2017. That's 29.3%!!!!!

lol, please
03-06-2017, 10:41 PM
Phantom call on Barnes. Somethings never change in the NBA....

lol, please
03-06-2017, 10:43 PM
For what?
The Cavaliers picked him up for very obvious reasons and he gets injured 2 mins into the first game as a Cavalier...what do you mean for what? That's awesome. (not the injury, the irony).

are you for real?

I am for real. Is there a problem? lol.

True.... And then bricked a 3-pointer on the next possession. The guy has always been streaky, but he's just been downright awful over the last two months. Houston really needs to upgrade at SF.

In unrelated news, Harden is having one of his best games of the season. 30 points on 11-13 shooting with 10 assists. Remarkable.

kdspurman
03-06-2017, 10:59 PM
Btw Bosstone, Green was 13/44 his last 10 games. Not far off lol

Harden has been a beast. We slow him down and good things will happen. I don't think we can let him go crazy and stop other guys cause he gets guys great looks.

kdspurman
03-06-2017, 11:02 PM
It also helps to put Kawhi on Harden. Green has had that responsibility most of the night. We'll probably see it more this half

mightybosstone
03-06-2017, 11:05 PM
Ouch. That's about the ugliest stretch of basketball they've played all season long...

kdspurman
03-06-2017, 11:12 PM
Such a bad call on that Harden 3.

mightybosstone
03-06-2017, 11:17 PM
Such a bad call on that Harden 3.

I thought he hit him on the arm. If anything, it was a bad call that they waited until after it missed to blow the whistle. That happens way too often in the NBA.

HandsOnTheWheel
03-06-2017, 11:18 PM
Heat just a game and a half behind Wade's Bulls for the 8th spot now.

mightybosstone
03-06-2017, 11:18 PM
As awful as that one stretch was in the third, I thought the Rockets recovered. But I don't have a ton of faith going into the 4th, because Houston's bench has been abysmal tonight. They need their bench to actual make some baskets to stay in this.

kdspurman
03-06-2017, 11:21 PM

I hate when they do that. It looked like he hit the arm after the ball was released tho.

But the late crap just makes it worse

mightybosstone
03-06-2017, 11:23 PM
My heart sank after that Patty Mills 3-pointer, but that was a key little 7-0 run there by the bench. That's the best stretch of basketball the 2nd unit has played all night long.

kdspurman
03-06-2017, 11:40 PM
Entertaining game. Kawhi taking over, but I know harden will come back and do what he does. Glad he opted to pass to Gordon instead of taking the 3

mightybosstone
03-06-2017, 11:40 PM
Whole lotta calls going San Antonio's way in this fourth quarter...

Pelicans with only 52 points through 3.

kdspurman

Holy crap Kawhi. Go ahead 3 then blocks Harden. MVP man. Does it on both ends

zn23
03-06-2017, 11:49 PM
Kawhi Leonard is the MVP... he just made two of the clutchest plays of the year.

First hits a contested 3 points to put the Spurs up 110-108, then on the other end blocks James Harden and Spurs get the ball and send Leonard to the FT line where he extends the lead to 112-108.

If you wanted and MVP statement, there it is.

tredigs
03-06-2017, 11:50 PM
Kawhi that was so ****ing dirty. Clutch rise-up 3 with 30 seconds to go to take the lead, then races back off the screen to smash Harden's layup. Then wrestles the rebound and hits both the subsequent intentional fouls. THAT is clutch city, damn.

nastynice

I really wanted the Rockets to take this game - especially after being up 16 - but Kawhi had different plans.

mightybosstone
03-06-2017, 11:54 PM
Wow.... Talk about some home cooking. Clearly fouled Aldridge with 2 seconds left and they just didn't call it. ****ing ********.

Oh well. Leonard was awesome. He made shots down the stretch and Harden didn't. Deveastating loss, but it was a great game. Really hope to see them in the second round of the playoffs.

Rewatch the play. Beverley and Ariza both clearly push Aldridge. They just chose not to call it.

I don't care that Westbrook is avg. a triple double. He doesn't play winning basketball, Kawhi does.

Kawhi is the MVP.

They should've fouled earlier, def waited too long. Did seem they pushed Aldridge but took long. They could've fouled Kawhi

Officials were inconsistent all night. Seemed Houston would get a string of calls, then they'd go our way, and vice versa.

I def hope we play the rockets too. Love Pop going against D'Antoni.

I am for real. Is there a problem? lol.

Word is, the Warriors didn't want him back, but regardless, you never say "sweet justice" and do the laughing emoji after anyone gets hurt. Pathetic, even for your standards.

03-07-2017, 01:26 AM
I never felt the Rockets were in the drivers seat, and Kawhi is a beast. Wish that phantom call on Ariza not touching Kawhi with a few minutes left could've been taken back but what are you going to do.


After Parker bricked a three I thought "keep shooting them". He did and I wished he stopped shooting them reeeeaaaal quick.


March 6th was the anniversary of the last day of the siege at the Alamo so I can't get too down.

That's how the NBA does it. Rather than testing everybody, there is just periodic random testing.

Utar Jazz with the W. Shut down the Pels. They made it close at the end but Hayward put it away. Excellent game from Hayward and Gobert to get a W without Hill. Our PGs are such hot garbage without Hill in the lineup.

I'm not sure Russ can get a triple double. He's barely at the 10 assists mark and with how his teammates have been playing lately, I can understand why he's not getting the assists. Wish he'd just go after the triple double and stop scoring so much. They're not getting any better.

I think he pretty much has to average like right around 9 a game from here on out, which seems doable. Idk what their remaining schedule looks like, but I think he should be able to
