I know its hard for you to watch someone have to deal with multiple defenders being a warrior fan with that being impossible but harden is making this team go per usual kiddo.

Lmfao @ 3pt foul for Harden to end the half. All year he is getting that. What a complete ****ing joke those calls are. NO ref is calling that in a meaningful minute of the post-season, rest assure. 3-11 and leading his team in the negative sense on +/-. Being carried in what was their most impressive half of the past month IMO.


I can already see the future of Harden's horrible playoff performances this year when a team actually schemes for him. Regular season teams simply don't and frankly can't scheme. Too many games.

Good to see the Raptors hit their first 3 with 5 minutes to go in the 2nd half though. Welcome to the game buddies.

That rule was created because a guy on your team injured Kawhi Leonard by over playing a 3 pt shot after the ball left his hands.

Lmfao please. Kawhi got his ankle turned in half on that play. Did Harden even make contact on his step forward? Just don't defend Harden's absurd calls. That one being the most absurd of the night to this point, but will not be the last.

Ummm maybe because like you said, heís looking for the foul! If he keep trying to get it the eventually he will get it.

If he donít get it then heís talented enough to hit the 3pt shot still.

Why settle for three when you can get four.

Itís a strategy to score more points, again, fouls are a part of the game.

Donít like it then just donít foul him, simple.

The whole point of this diatribe was off of a 3pt foul that was an absolute joke of a call that I have never seen another player in the game get on a consistent basis, and I can guarantee will be addressed/not stand going forward. Harden is the most exploitive player I have ever seen. Good for him. It works for 82 games ever year.

Strawman? Did I ever say Harden is not a great player? I know he's great, I've known he was great WAY before most of you Rockets fans when I was watching every OKC game in 2011.


I just know he has grown into an exploiter/regular season superstar/***** who the vast majority of fans ****ing hate to watch play. It's probably why the fan vote had Derrick ****ing Rose above him in the AS voting. Nobody likes Harden. And nobody likes a guy who turtles in the playoffs.


Anyway, enough real talk. Rockets role players dominated tonight. Good for them. They earned this win.

If he had a supporting cast like Steph Curry, he could.

Harden tends to rest of the defensive end at times to conserve himself for offense.

But even when he has the supporting cast he doesn't do it. It's all effort and want to man. This guy could be so ridiculously special (hes already ****ing phenomenal). I just see the glimpses too often. His footwork and strength are second to none at the position but he just doesn't want it.

Dude Harden 9-23, 2-13 from 3, and lived from the line. Team worst -8 for the game and quite frankly just unimpressive as **** all game in their most impressive win of his entire streak. Maybe the dude will learn to lean on his teammates some more? Doubtful though as he is clearly MVP myopically focused and has said as much. God knows he can't carry them anywhere on his own.

In all honesty, Harden was not good in portions of that game, especially down the stretch. That's the second game in a row where he was obviously settling for step back 3-pointers every single time he had the ball in his hands, even though he was bricking every single one.

But the Rockets played well enough in the first half and rebuilt their lead enough late to survive the Raptors' run. This is that very rare game lately where the rest of the Rockets really carried Harden. And I will 100 percent take it. I'd much rather have a game like tonight than a night like they had against Philly where Harden was playing well and everyone else was hot garbage.

Regardless of the outcome tonight, that Raptors team is legit. I really hope Kawhi stays in Toronto. He's a good fit there, and that's a squad I would not want to face in the postseason.

hahaha. No doubt. Funny thing is all they care about is Harden, because I mean they know their team is trash. And Harden being a ****ing wreck for them tonight is PROBABLY almost worse for them than the win. Especially since the win was in spite of him. I love it.

this utah-minny game was a 7 point game til a few calls didn't go the twolves way. Then Taj gets ejected and towns commits a dumb foul for his 4th foul of hte game and then they just let the jazz get every offensive rebound. Towns came back in though and is at least keeping this a 20 point game.

In all honesty, Harden was not good in portions of that game, especially down the stretch. That's the second game in a row where he was obviously settling for step back 3-pointers every single time he had the ball in his hands, even though he was bricking every single one.

But the Rockets played well enough in the first half and rebuilt their lead enough late to survive the Raptors' run. This is that very rare game lately where the rest of the Rockets really carried Harden. And I will 100 percent take it. I'd much rather have a game like tonight than a night like they had against Philly where Harden was playing well and everyone else was hot garbage.

Regardless of the outcome tonight, that Raptors team is legit. I really hope Kawhi stays in Toronto. He's a good fit there, and that's a squad I would not want to face in the postseason.

Thanks and yeah he was settling there for a bit. I thought he had a great floor game though and that's what makes him so tough. He moves the ball so well.

Look inward buddy.

Youíre jealous that Hardenís getting a lot of air time lately and you know Curry couldnít do the same in the same situation. Youíre usually pretty transparent. Just be happy with all the success the Warriors have had lately and how the NBA is making it so much easier for them.

I get the sense that he's ideal in certain matchups and just flat out unplayable in others. Like against Philly, putting Faried on Embiid was just laughable. But last night against a team without a real dominant big man, he really thrived and didn't seem outmatched on defense. The trick for D'Antoni will be using him against matchups where his defensive deficiencies don't outweigh the huge pluses he offers on the glass and on the offensive side of the ball. That isn't really possible to do right now, but it will be when Capela comes back.

I thought both guys had OK games. Harden did a better job running the floor, and Kawhi was clearly the more efficient scorer. Harden was better early. Kawhi was much better late. For once, though, it was nice to see Harden get the better end of Kawhi on a defensive play at the end of a game rather than the other way around. That late-game block from a year or two ago still haunts my dreams.

Definitely don't think you can gauge much about Kawhi's future from lat night's game either. It was one game, and Toronto has been damn good for Kawhi so far.

Again, I don't think you can gauge too much from that. The dude went to college there. Also, it's not as if San Diego has an NBA team or that LA is that close to San Diego. It would be like somebody buying a house in Austin and people saying a player is like to sign with Houston, Dallas or San Antonio. Nobody buys a house that's two hours from work because of the easy commute. They do it to have a home away from work in the offseason.

I have no idea what Tg11 is talking about. His suspicions seem to be the weakest pieces of evidence in many of his posts. Kawhi purchasing a home that is nearly two hours away from the Staples Center on a GOOD DAY of no traffic means it is a four hour ride to the Staples center and back to his newly purchased house every home game. Unless this dude has a personal helicopter afforded to him the way Kobe did, there is very low chance this home purchase is related to any NBA decision he will make this offseason. If you're a wealthy celebrity, it's almost a crime not to have a home in California. The lifestyle is just too great to pass up.

"Clearly outplayed" by Harden. Uhm, I'm not sure which game you were watching but no player "clearly outplayed" the other. I thought Kawhi played better than Harden and I'm fairly confident most people watching the game felt that way as well. Where did you come up with the conclusion that he was clearly outplayed?

Lastly, Kawhi knows he will get the max from any team he wants unless something major happens like a heavy injury. He has zero reason to rush and sign a contract. I'm sure Toronto has offered him it already but really, if Kawhi felt that the injury was going to be such a problem, he probably would take the max contract.


I'm just not sure where your mind is at, man. There has to be some sort of thought process you can let us in on because it's almost like a damn satire.

Nothing to do with streaks but I was surprised when I heard Wiggins was #2 in the Wolves all-time scoring list. Insane when you think about it but then you realize that players rarely chose to stay with the Wolves. Makes sense why they paid Wiggins. Afraid he was going to leave.
