he's gonna have a 40-20 game at some point this season.
Just saw that SA is coming off a loss. That spells doom for the Rox tonight
I expect a lot of turnovers and another great stat game for harden! I'm hoping for the game where we play great for 4 qtrs. though.
Hubie instead of Van Grumpy tonight. Like that
Bench has gone a bit cold, but very nice start to this thing. Keep it up.
Well at least we hung onto the lead at halftime
Gosh darn Brewer is $#@!ing awful. 2 wide open corner 3 looks and bricks both, he's just useless on the court.
Brewer and Ariza are so bad. Fortunately Ariza plays at least some defense
Up four - Harden misses two free throws.
San Antonio scores
Up two - Harden misses an awful three pointer
San Antonio misses.
Should be tied.
Harden $#@!ing playing hero ball the last 3 possessions
5-3 with 7 of 8 coming on the road. Not a bad start
Why do we do these back to backs with Dallas and San Antonio? Kind of stupid but whatever. I'd gladly take a 1-1 split with the Spurs on Friday but sure would be nice to win at home.
i would have been (and probably still would be) fine with a split going in, but now i'm greedy and want both of them.
Great road win. Spurs fans will point to Danny Green being rusty and no Parker, but I give zero $#@!s. Glad we pulled it out after Harden sputtered down the stretch.
Also, we may never be a great defensive team with this roster and style of play, but the effort was there from everyone tonight and it made a huge difference. I can only think of one play - Gordon got backdoored pretty hard - where I threw my hands up in frustration on the defensive end. Harden's effort generally sets the attitude of the rest of the team, and it's there right now.
really enjoyed that lowe piece and found this quip pretty funny:
That system is devastating, by the way -- at least when Harden is on the floor. (If you look up Houston's scoring numbers with Harden resting, your computer just laughs at you.)
Triple double... knew he Wouldn't get the 30, but don't care.win.
Our best hope defensively, is that our offense becomes so potent that teams are constantly having to play uphill on the scoreboard and that it mentally wears teams out over time. I would have to imagine that we put a lot of pressure on teams to score themselves. I mean we average 30+ pts in the first qtr so far, that's letting folks know right out the gates what kind of night their in for!
It gets frustrating to see, but I understand it. The players around him have to earn that respeck.
Think about this, Steve Nash never had a triple double with 15 or more assists
Lets run it back tomorrow night!
