    16 boards. 4-4 from FT. 6 points. A block against Culver that somehow wasn't recorded. Solid defense. And was second only to Clemons in +/- with a +26 for the night. And, most importantly, the Rockets are undefeated this season in games in which Hartenstein receives meaningful minutes.

    HARTENSTEIN HATERS CAN SUCK IT!

    Thank you.

    admittedly not the biggest fan of IHart but he was solid tonight. he didn't try to do too much and contributed what he could. lets see if he can build off this

    Some of these guys just need consistent nba minutes to get comfortable.

    D’Antoni had to play them tonight and couldn’t yank them when they had a couple bad moments.

    Theres talent there with these guys. D’Antoni just has to let them play through things sometimes so they can be ready for the stretch run.

    Dude plays hard and rebounds extremely well. No reason he shouldn’t be a regular 10-15 minute player. All he needs is offensive development.

    Exactly!!! I've been waiting forever for MDA to give him some decent minutes. The good out of Clint's injury is that MDA pretty much had to finally give him a chance. As I expected, he showed he is ready for the big league!

    Imagine if this guy was getting minutes last year along side Nene. MDA needs to just play these guys. The children won't f-ck up games so much that Harden can't come back from a small deficit. Too many possessions in a game for Clemons, iHart and Gary to be nailed to the bench.

    Full Disclosure: I've been a part of the PLAY THESE GUYS hive for years.

    Hartenstein would still be bad as of right now if Capela didn't get injured, remember this :D

    "Jokes" aside, Clark hit a shot, i wonder if he's going to start in the next game
    :D

    He managed to contribute in a meaningful way without unleashing that vaunted 3-point shot.

    Looks like he should soak up all excess minutes at the 5

    Capela - Chandler - Harry

    No space for Tuck at the 5

    for real, he needs to launch at least 2 a game with confidence.

    It would open up everything. Look at his ft shooting!

    Whole Foods Aron Baynes!

    OG Hart fan here. Was really surprised to read so much hate he has gotten. He was balling all year last year in the g league. Every opportunity he got he played his ass off and produced. 21 years old. What more do yall want from a low second rounder?The only time he looked bad was preseason this year after coming back from injury in summerleague. This is only one game, hope he gets a chance to prove himself going forward.

    It's always satisfying to see a big man nail free throws so easily.

    I swear it is because he looks goofy when he plays.

    Don’t understand why they keep sending him down to the G league. He’s dominated the G league; G league MVP, G league championship. He needs regular NBA rotation minutes to continue to improve.

    He is useful to protect the rim's especially useful vs strong forward and center such as Bucks, Lakers and Dallas. We can think about to play double towers vs Gianns. Caplea vs Gianns and AD , and let Harkinstein in the center. Tucker move to guard Leborn. For some special matchup, anyway it is good to see Clemons, he is another 6 ft cp3. Ben looks more good than Eric. we can beat them with 20 points. RIVERS back to last season level now. Really thanks for rest west books
