    It had something to do with your comment that you havent seen one game that the rockets havent coasted. I found it odd since harden just dropped 56.

    Harden actually did kinda coast to that 56 lol

    The only game this year, imo, with full effort this season was the opener against the warriors.

    We, seemingly, have been coasting and yet we are so good we are still 8-3. Should be exciting.

    As for the griz, if Marc and Mike aren't giving you that effort and grind, they will lose because the rest of the team is trash.

    "James Harden turned in one of the most efficient performances in NBA history on Sunday, scoring 56 points on 25 shots"
    https://www.fanragsports.com/did-james-harden-just-have-the-greatest-offensive-game-ever/
    "making 19 of 25 shots from the floor (76%)"
    "He generated the third-most points of all time but with a fraction of the attempts:"

    Yesterday's game was the epitome of a coast game.

    Pretty much. Marc is always tough, but they are perennial pretenders.

    Even with Tyreke playing like an all-star, there's just no depth to this team. They lost too many veterans. Even Conley is not playing to his standard. They will struggle to make the playoffs.

    Sometimes you can try too hard. Rookies do it all the time. Harden is a thinker, not a blue collar grinder. To me that's why his defense is somewhat weak. Defense is blue collar work mostly. His mind needs to adjust to this type of work. It's like getting an accountant out on a Habitat for Humanity site and expecting them to know how to hang drywall. That accountant will get better and better at it over time, but it's not going to come naturally.

    Either way, Harden coasts on offense all the time and he should. He scored 56 points almost effortlessly and people are wanting to spin that as a bad thing? Not me. I really appreciate how smart he was that game. Dude's a genius.

    Probably back to the Titans now that they look like they might make the playoffs.

    You mean if only they could play us every game minus EGo and CP3. We just beat them and get another crack at them with CP3 healthy. I think we'll be alright.

    It's safe to ignore the Grizzlies now.

    Here are some GREAT Grizzlies highlights brought to you by Pete Pranica and Brevin Knight. I promise it's worth watching.
