    Its kind of cool how Harden racks up his points and it doesn't even surprise you as you're watching. That just means the bar and expectations for him are at that high of a level.

    Also, the starters need to look for Howard on the post up. He seals his man off and then they just jack up a 3.

    I'm mainly looking at you Harden & Jeremy.

    One of the biggest improvements needed this season.

    Kind of wish we had Shane Battier in this situation. He was an amazing entry passer who consistently got the ball to the post player fast and accurately.

    In before some crazies say his performance didn't mean much. Game was given to us by the Kncks, didn't even really need Harden.

    The bar is set extremely high for harden. He had a season at 23 on par with Kobe wade and lebron, in their primes last season. Dude is very young and still
    Learning. I think everyone including myself expected him to be as consistent and as smart of a player as Lebron and KD are year in and year out. We all thought thought that at 24 harden would be able to put us on his back and take us to the promise land like the two best players in the game do. Give him time because he does show flashes of being the best player in the game some night and most nights he's still the best player on the court. At 24 I'll take that over and other young stud and the includes Paul George. Something about harden, he seems to have that it factor and can do things that only maybe 10 players that have played the game before have been able todo. Give him time the expectations we placed on him are a little unfair this season but he's ours and I wouldn't want any other young superstar other than KD. This team is still super talented and could easily get hot and make a run this yr. it's not like we're the warriors or suns we have legit championship caliber players I. Harden, Howard and asik with young guys like parsons and Bev who have shown to be gamers in the playoffs.

    So much this. We saw what a huge and reliable offensive threat Dwight can be when Harden was out. Should definitely exploit that more.

    Harden is nice, but keep in mind he plays the whole 4th & takes at least 70% of the rockets shots in the 4th

    Now that's just dishonest.

    Rockets average 19 FGA in the 4th quarter, Harden averages 4 FGA in the 4th quarter.

    In fact, whiles the Rockets shoot 46% from the field and 33% from 3PT in the 4th quarter, Harden shoots 52% from the field and 51.5% from 3PT in the 4th quarter.

    This also isn't taking account of the fact that Harden gets to the free throw line a lot as well. If we separate quarter by quarter scoring, Harden's best quarter is by far his 4th, both in terms of shooting percentage and points scored.

    Man feels so good to have a superstar player again.

    I am really noticing just an overall better mood on the board since we obtained Harden.

    Harden was part of an 11 player team turnover. You're basically saying people started feeling better since the New Age started.

    No, I was clearly being facetious.

    The Lin fans have made this place a nightmare despite the team being in the best position it has been in since 2004

    When I said 70% it was a eye test including how many times he gets to the foul line
