Leave the room for 5 minutes and come back to this $#@!?
James and the team seemed hellbent on getting him another assist for a triple double. This is the result.
Harden goes for 40, 14, 10. The 4th player in NBA history with consecutive 40-10-10 games. Jordan, Westbrook and Maravich are the others.
$#@! some of y'all. 31-9 and have played well vs the league's elite. Undefeated in second half of back to backs and typically dominate weaker teams. On pace to win 60+.
Geez. On the road tomorrow night against the T-Wolves. Anyone else forget the OT heroics needed to pull out a win the last time the Rockets played in Minnesota?
We are missing 2 rotational players as well, and were forced to play Brewer for extended minutes tonight. I'm happy with the win.
We have the same # of losses as the Cavs. I didn't expect that to be the case come January.
Gotta keep this up if we want home court advantage in the Finals.
As Clyde said, they got a bit bored and sloppy, which led to the 21-2 run. I agree, TSA - they were also $#@!ing around trying to get Harden that triple double.
Keep the wins coming, though. Especially without Gordon. We haven't seen many sustained runs like that against these guys - I'm not worried. I do expect a loss tomorrow, though.
Tonight is game #41. Half-way through the season, could be 9 wins short of last year's total.
I don't know why anyone would be hand wringing over 31-9 or when we lost the lead last night would be like "oh of course here we go again".. It's one game and yes we will lose a few more so don't freak out. I'm happy already because we have exceeded what any of us thought and it is barely January. If we don't have any major injuries I don't see why this team can't compete or make a WCF series competitive at the least.

Can we talk Montrezl Harrell for a second?
I for one thought we were really going to struggle when Capela went down. I thought that the pick & roll with Harden and said big man wouldn't be as potent if there wasn't someone Harden threaten with a pass over the top of the defense(my thoughts were that Nene was too old to get up and Harrell was too short). I've never been happier to be wrong. Harrell has some pseudo ninja way of creating and finishing around the rim. From the angle on most telecasts it looks like he's finishing through defenders rather than over or around them, not to mention his propensity to draw and-1s with it. The guy has been amazing and truly a pleasant surprise man! What I think he's 17/18 from the floor in the last 2 games...the sign of a good team is that someone new steps up each night cause they're all playing with confidence.
Let's make it 10-0 on the 2nd night of back2backs!
Yeah, Trez has been a great surprise. His stats are up across the board and he has a 20.27 PER. He has some great energy and really tries on defense. Since Capela went down, he's averaging 27 mpg, 69.5% FG, 14.8 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 1.8 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1 turnover. Great stats for a young player. Biggest issue is 62% on free throws, which we know can be a real $#@!ty problem against teams that like to exploit that.
He's a great guy to have coming off the bench whenever Capela comes back. I hope these few weeks of increased playing time give him the confidence and experience he needs to continue growing as a player. Hell, we might stick with him in the starting lineup even after Capela comes back, he can match up real well against smaller lineups out there.
Tonight could be an L given last game vs minny and the comeback we put on them and we probably do not have Gordon again. We will lose eventually like san Antonio did last night and its at minny again. But $#@! all that noise and get another road win!
anderson can't hit the broad side of a barn early on.
Looks like minny is blowing their wad in the 1st qtr again. Every time I watch minny and see the talent they have I don't get how they are 12-26?
some of those harden passes in the first were just absolutely incredible.
this is very ugly, but good to get the t-wolves lead down to 6 before harden checks back in.
ugly ass 3rd quarter. gonna need an effort at the start of the 4th like the one they got sunday night in toronto.
...and this is pretty much the opposite of that.
it's not happening tonight. get the starters out of the game.
andersons gonna shoot the rockets back into it. $#@! that guy
Nah, time to pack it in. It's alright, $#@! happens.
