In this NBA there are only 3 or 4 teams you see winning a title, and you pretty much have to have a top 5 player (we sort of can squint our eyes and see that) a top 10 guy and then some other help. We tried that with Howard and Harden and it obviously didn't work. Yao and Tracy same story. If you only have Harden then you aren't winning a title (same for "only" having Lebron or "only" having Durant or WB or a prime Melo etc) so you might as well have some fun and enjoy the season. I think this will be a fun-ish season if you watch it for what it is, entertaining hoops that won't end with us hoisting any trophy. And that's fine with me.
Give SAC whatever they want, except Harden, for Cousins. 3 way. 4 way. Any way.
they've offered d-mo a multi year deal that starts at $7 million this year.
D12 to have a monster game tonight. Maybe the Rockets aim to get him into foul trouble? Nah, bombs away from beyond the 3 pt arc.
First time watching the Rox (thanks Leaguepass!). Yikes... it's one thing to read about the no defense but to watch it... it's something else. Too many TOs too.
I really don't want to lose to Dwight's new team
Be nice if the team could make some 3s.
ATL is shooting 60% and we're only down 6 at half
Wish the Rockets coulda gotten Millsap.
Harden is amazing.
looks like i picked a good one to miss.
25 turnovers, which is about 10 too many.
I feel this is what it will be all season. Up, down, look amazing, WTF losses to bad teams, no defense in every $#@!ing game. I will say the two games against Cleveland and NY were fun to watch and showed us what this team on offense can do but you have to play defense and scrap out some wins when the shots aren't falling. I still think we will win 45-47 games.
A rebound might help, too.
RocketHorn is right - we will have some really $#@!ty games when we are cold and turning the ball over, and we will have some great, exhilarating wins when we are firing on all cylinders. It'll be a bit up and down this year, and that's generally OK I think.
need to beat the wizards tonight.
1. they aren't very good.
2. the next two games are against the spurs.
man, what a $#@!ing half for clint capela.
1 point lead going to the 4th. gonna have to get some stops in order to win this one...
If Capela wasn't such a liability at the line he would be a great player. If I coached against him I would tell my players to wrap him up if he had the ball close to the basket
yeah he has got to get better at shooting free throws.
Did the based god lift his curse on Harden?
harden is taking over late. nice to see.
needed that one. i think one of the biggest differences early on this year is they are winning the games they absolutely need to win.
would love to split the next 2 with the spurs.

James Harden Last 4 Games
41 Points, 15 assists
30 Points, 16 assists
30 Points, 12 assists
32 Points, 15 assists
I think the record for most 30 pt 15 assist games in a season is like 6. Hardens gonna obliterate that
Harden is amazing. If he can keep this pace up, this would go down as one of the greatest individual seasons ever. I really wish that we had a true defensive stopper or two, because this team could be special if we didn't have to have superhuman performances from Harden every night to get a win. He's bound to wear down.
Harden is a pure beast. This team is much more enjoyable to watch and root for.
He did get away from that stank Kardashian puss tho
