    no shame in BR anymore. They are a legit source imo, gotten legit writers and endorsed by the NBA too.

    Harden has been clutch as **** lately. If that shot vs GS did win us that (had curry not sent it to OT) game this 13 game stretch would have been one of the clutchest stretches I have seen from a Rocket in over a decade.

    Ric Bucher is still an idiot.

    lol i laughed when apparently people were talking about Wall being a bust, i don't remember anyone saying that, Wall in my view was on track nicely, i think the media jump to grade players way too quickly

    Yeah he was doing ok, he just needed some help. They finally got everyone healthy and they brung over Gortat and Ariza has been playing out of his mind.

    Harden missed a free throw and had that horrible turnover on the last possession yesterday, but everything else he did in the 4th was outstanding. That fadeaway with LeBron guarding him. That buzzer-beating floater off the tipped ball. Attacking the basket and getting to the foul line in the final minute(even though he did miss one out of two). And he nearly got a steal on one of Miami's possessions late in the game.

    he's not arguably the best closer in the nba until he does it in the playoffs. however, he is going to have plenty of opportunities over the next couple of years to prove that he is.

    Im beginning to me more and more of a fan of Harden. He's definitely maturing as a Rocket and expanding his game. If Hamilton isn't able to be retained this off season, Rox needs to shop Lin and or Asik to find a Hamilton replacement to come back up Harden.

    Bucher writing an article yesterday comparing Jimmer to Steph Curry made me laugh. Typical Bucher

    The scary thing is he's not even in his prime. And once he becomes more of a shooting guard and less of a point guard he'll be even more deadly.

    He tried to throw the game away last night by picking up his dribble and throwing the ball out of bounds down by 3. I'm not so sure clutch players do that in that situation.

    That was totally inexplicable, but it hasn't been a pattern. If fact, Harden stayed true to his actual pattern last night by hitting some incredible shots in the 4th.

    I've learned not to dog on Harden for atrocious first halves anymore . The dude just brings it late in the game everytime...
