    Tucker's kryptonite is the lane. . . . Dude just cannot do much of anything in the lane
    It is almost funny to see him get to the basket and pass it out because lack of confidence or something

    The upper bowl gets pretty damn rowdy whenever I have been there.

    Yes I would if he doesn't make it past the W. Finals. When I said this I wasn't considering regular season. Its the truth though....he likes to let them play through

    He doesn't have the quickness or speed but teams are ignoring him sometimes, that is when he gets to the hoop with mediocre speed.

    Contrast that to Klay.

    There is no doubt in my mind, Klay could do (and has done) that very same Extended Forearm-Block defense and gotten away with it on Harden. Klay is a master of that defense ... and Harden becomes the "bitch with his whining" to the public and media for arguing it.

    Great game and win for the guys. I wish I got to catch the 2nd half of it to see the improved defense I've been hearing about.

    On another note, what was Hartenstein's production like? I still have that sour taste in my mouth from last year whenever he'd give up the lead for his 8 minutes. Some of the highlights I was able to catch were when he was in the game, Portland seemed to score ... but not sure if that tells the whole picture lol

    he's ony abe to get away with that because he's with GSW and the refs for whatever reason let him do it alot in the playoffs vs harden especially putting a leg in harden's landing space

    He too busy sending Harden and Westbrook home in the Playoffs on legendary buzzer beaters

    Westbrook played his absolutely best A game. Right now, even a Westbrook looks good against a hobled Blazers team without their two best defenders. In the Playoffs, he chucks up 30 shots for 25 Points. Lillard meanwhile, he doesnt care about Westbrook anymore, he humiliated him, thats why he's on the Rockets Team. He doesnt own him, he destroyed him in the worst way you can only imagine.

    I'm sure he will, when he sends Houston home on a 50 ft. Bomb

    The Rockets are still undefeated in games in which Hartenstein gets minutes.
