    Ariza would always got those layups to fall though haha, my point is that almost every time Ive seen Mac try to drive in on his defender something bad happens. I see your point about the bunnies though, I want him running the court in transition to get those.

    Are we officially on the BMac wagon? Should we ask for forgiveness for doubting him. I'm on the fence about this.

    Yessssss! He wants to start? Fine. He wants to come in with the 2nd unit? Fine. He wants James's favorite cup at whatever strip club they go to now? I'd consider it. Just don't screw this up.

    Nice having a good 3pt shooter isn't it, when you shoot the most 3s in the NBA.

    I've already been giving myself crow to eat haha. Most likely his numbers are gonna come down, but as long as the dude can hit a decent amount of threes, Im good with him.......Also dude needs to stop fouling, i feel like 90% of the And 1 s weve given up this season have been him.

    I am however....kinda excited at the possibility that this will be the year he just breaks out as a dead eye shooter for us. Those net rating numbers he has for us....are really telling.

    He needs another game or three. Preferably against another good defensive team, though Toronto should be one of those. Especially on their home floor where they'd lost only something like 2 games so far before the Rockets showed up.

    I'm enjoying it while it lasts.

    This is crap and you know it.

    The NBA has at least 5 or 6 different sets of rules for Harden. They can't keep up with him.

    Yeah man, I been riding BMac all season and right now he is making me eat crow and I'm really happy about that. I hope he is able to keep shooting like this. The bench will be really good once EG comes back if Ben keeps this up. I hope that we can eventually reduce Harden and PJs minutes.

    Man, if BMAC can keep this up and then Gordon returns, we’ve Suddenly got a monster bench.

    Why was BMAC allowed to stay in the game after he fouled out?

    B-Mac makes Eric Gordon obsolete

    They incorrectly gave the foul to him...was actually on Harden.

    They said there was a scoreboard malfunction. He had five fouls, not six, I guess.

    Nah, just adds to the strength of our team. Gordon can be streaky but definitely has some nice drives and some awesome shooting from the arc on a good night. I bet he has lost some muscle in his arms though since being hurt. Those arms are so used to flying up after every non call for a foul.

    Also, shout out to Clint Capela. He's been a monster his last ten games or so.

    Definitely, except for one glaring deficiency, and that is his horrific FT percentage. I just don't get it. He is gonna kill us by being forced to the bench or getting hacked in the playoffs if he doesn't fix that. 47 percent is just terrible. I don't get it. I mean, it's almost as bad as his 2nd season. Time for granny shots or practicing 1000 free throws a night, or whatever it takes.
