    Harden didn't practice today. If he's not playing tomorrow, I'm not sure I have the courage to watch this game...

    Easily a loss, even if pop benches his bench players.

    Oh man, can we forfeit? This is just a terrible matchup for us, in the sense that all of their players are better than ours.

    It would be a loss even if we were versing their second unit. Sad reality. They have been getting better and better.

    If Harden's not playing, it could be an opportunity to see how Jeremy Lin does running the offense for most of the game. Yes, he'd be doing it without Harden the two-guard so that's a disadvantage, but there will be 5 on the floor still.

    For a young team, an injury could mean an opportunity... a chance to see something different. For fans, we're more or less collecting data to see what shows promise and what doesn't.

    (But yes, we need Harden)

    No way we can beat the Spurs. I just hope Mchale learn from his mistakes and give more minutes to Asik, Lin, Morris and Greg Smith. Hopefully DMo and TJones get some playing time too.

    Chandler will play point if Harden is out. Lin will be in the corner again.

    With or without him, we will lose unless miracle happens.

    lol...especially if pop benches his bench players.

    Come to think of it, if Harden doesn't play tomorrow Stern may look at our lineup and fine the Rockets for $250k. Timmy D. has probably played more minutes than our whole line up combined.

    Likely a loss even if Pop sits GDP again. But as long as the team plays better than they did last Friday (meaning they've learned something from last game), I'll be content and call it a successful lesson.
