    Harden just isnt mentally strong it is what it is. You gotta accept what he is a person thats why trade has been great because for all of his faults Beastbrook has given the Rockets the heart it needed.

    Even with the chokejob though Harden still +9 including making the game winning plays (poked the ball from Thise to allow Tucker to get the reb, shot 2/2 for ft, then bothered Thise so he couldnt get a shot off in time) so even if he isnt the most mentally strong guy out there Harden still a top 5 player in the league.

    The guy had a bad game, I bet he would admit it. Players can be called out for sucking even in a win, especially when its from poor decision making. What is it with this participation medal generation and being offended when people mention negatives. We are all fans of the team and want the team at its best, hence why stuff like James in the 4th is called out as it will cost you when it matters but is easily fixed.

    Pointing out the good AND the bad doesnt make someone a hater.

    Tf? They played excellent defense to overcome some tough stretches offensively. That is EXACTLY what they’ll need to do come playoff time. What are u talking about?

    If the Rockets fail to win a title it won’t be because of Harden... he has been the best player in the world the last 5-6 years.

    He tends to make up for his mistakes.

    Yeah and then he went and won it for you in overtime on both sides of the ball.

    A great game to watch on national TV and was very entertaining. The Westbrook putback dunk was a great effing play.

    Me too. I would love for Harden to drive more. But I think the reason he didn't do it more is because he was getting a lot of attention when he drove to the basket tonight. The Celtics were playing the paint defense switching pretty well tonight.

    He closed the game out but that's just rectifying the mistake he made.

    Dude IS a big choker sorry man I love Harden a lot maybe more than you but you straight up lying if you think he didnt choke this game. He just made up for his choking at the end but doesnt take away the fact that he choked in 4Q.

    Kemba's D sucks. I'm willing to bet we win easy if they have Kemba.

    Lol. I wanted to choke his ass the whole game and then he said that. WTF!? I wouldn’t expect him to say “fortunately the shot was after the clock expired” either.

    Be unbiased you old geezer. It’s a national game, not your hometown broadcast team.

    I did point out he had a bad game. That's not the point I was making.

    People were so quick to call Harden a choker and that the game was on him if we lost. Well.... he got us a key steal and 2 key free throws, whilst making those 2 free throws under real pressure. He also got a tip on the rebound at the end that stopped the Celtics from making their shot.

    I'm relieved and very pleased with the win. Our guys have to sit down and watch the video of this game, so we can learn from our mistakes in practice. I was disappointed in Ben and Eric, but I have faith in them.
    Russ is our MVP. I love Harden too.
    Go Houston Rockets!
