This game meant more to the Spurs, who are undoubtedly playing great basketball as of late.

Btw Derrick White has been killing it for that team. Great on defense, can hit 3s. Basically the perfect Spurs type player.

But when they rematch, Raps will hopefully have JV and Lowry back.

not the and 1 that gave capella the 3 point play up 6 to cut it to 3 or the brick right before it allowing harden to send the game to overtime? Durant had 6 in the 4th to curry 7 and 2 of those 7 only happen because Durant saved it by jumping out of bounds on a clear as day out of bounds play lol

After that offensive foul call on Harden on what should have been a 3-point play midway through overtime, I was pissed. But on that out of bounds call, I was literally about to lose my ****ing mind. I couldn't believe they blew the call that badly. I can't recall seeing a team overcome a call that bad to win such a big game like that in the final seconds. Nor can I remember the last time I saw a player hit a shot with that degree of difficulty in such a big moment.

In 6-8 years when Harden retires and someone is looking to put together the highlight reel of his best plays, that shot will probably be No. 1. And that's really saying something given some of the insane plays he's made over the years.

Adding to the list of Warrior-friendly calls from that overtime, but I've been watching the 3-pointer on a loop for the last 10 minutes and he probably should have gotten the and-1 call there. Green clearly steps into Harden's landing space, and Harden slips on his feet. But I'll let it go. Hard to still be that bitter after a win like that.

To be fair, there were times tonight where I felt like Durant or Curry or Thompson disappeared for huge chunks of the game. Harden NEVER disappears when he's on the floor. The dude has the ball in his hands on like 80-90 percent of the possessions, and he's responsible for practically everything the Rockets do offensively.

I'm not saying MTM is necessarily right here. But I do think it's a hell of a lot easier to do what Durant and Curry do a nightly basis than what Harden does on a nightly basis, especially right now when the Rockets are missing their No. 2 and No. 3 offensive weapons.

i troll when i say curry is trash but i am dead serious when i state harden------------>curry. Sorry but its hard to give one player the nod when they are statistically similar and that one guy has the 2nd best player in the world and the 2nd best shooter maybe ever making it impossible to double and triple team him.. Do you honestly think if roles were reversed curry could maintain being as good if he were on the current rockets team or any of those lebron led cavs teams? Again harden/Lebron on neutral teams do more for said team because they cant be contained nomatter how many guys you throw at them... Curry is a great player... top 5 player but he has the team around him to make life easy for him

Good no call IMO. Refs aren't going to usually give that call that late in the game while you take a shot over two defenders and Harden isn't landing straight either. Leans into the three.

Completely agree with this. When people say "Would Curry/Harden be able to do what Harden/Curry do for the Rockets/Warriors?" I just immediately think "Obviously not. They're completely different offensive systems." The Warriors system is predicated on ball movement and guys moving without the ball. The Rockets system is all isolation and Harden/Paul dribbling around screens to set mismatches. Curry's not capable of the kind of playmaking and defensive dissection that Harden does nightly, and Harden isn't going to run all over the floor and play off the ball to get open looks.

The "Bird Box" references on Twitter (including CP3 and Morey) are freaking hilarious! In all seriousness, though, the refs, the Rockets and the NBA as a whole are probably feeling pretty lucky right now. If Harden doesn't hit that miracle shot, that call would be all we'd be talking about right now. Definitely would not have been a good look for the league...
