    Harden literally owns Draymond. WTF are you talking about? He dunks on his head on the regular.

    Rockets win, trolls are silent, great way to go into the break. Way to close out the game!

    Can't say enough about how good our MVP duo is, and it felt good to see Harden look like himself! Hope his ankle heels up quickly, but we do have a nice break to get some rest.

    Usually I don't like long breaks because in the past the Rockets have always struggled after them. However, I think this one is going to be good, because

    1. Harden can have some more time to rest and recover, same with Westbrook, Gordon, Bruno and PJ who I'm sure appreciates a little rest.

    2. RoCo can have a chance to get more familiar with our system, we'll have a couple practices to iron out any unfamiliarity, though I think it'll be an ongoing process for the next 20 or so games. Imagine this team's defense when one of the best team defenders in the NBA gets used to everything.

    I don't think a lot of the ticky-tack fouls on us will be called in the playoffs--hat bodes well for us. In any case, our guys showed that they can play really solid defense, even with foul trouble.

    Add Harkless as well and I am telling you now that it's on MDA to divy the minutes so that small ball can be ran full speed most of the game efficiently.

    MDA deserves credit for doing the small things to unluck his talent. Russ was in OKC all his life, if OKC banishes Perkins and Mr. Thunder Collison to the bench, Plays Ibaka at 5 and KD at 4, and pays Harden, they may have been the champions forever.

    I’m with you but the results are what they are so far, shocked we rebounded as well as we did tonight, defense was great after they closed it to 94-92, House has some timely buckets and hustle plays, RoCo was huge defensively and PJ while not doing much offensively as usual had. A lot of big rebounds and defensive intensity. One of our better wins this year !!!

    Yup.

    The usual suspects go real quiet as soon as Harden gets going and Rockets start winning.

    And they call themselves Rockets fans.

    They aint foolin nobody.

    I like that I’m beginning to not be surprised by MDA’s timeout usage during opponent runs.

    If the experiment is going to work they’re going to have to put together multiple decent size win streaks to end the season.

    Teams don’t win rings as 4/5 seeds [generally].

    28 games left. They need to go AT LEAST 20-8. But even that probably lands a 4 seed. 22-24 wins can get you into 2 seed territory. It’s a lot to ask...

    It also helps that he has analytical nerd Morey on his side. Mike always talks about his regret in Phoenix of not shooting more threes. Now he is doing whatever the **** he wants and I can only imagine how much fun he is having.
