    Seems reluctant to give the ball to Harden off the rebound???? He did it a lot last year in the playoffs (even to the point where he would throw bad passes that result in TOs) in this game he's done it at least 3 and instead opted to bring the ball up court himself......

    Not sure if that is by design or is he showing disapproval of harden not giving him the ball.....

    He also seems rather childish at times too.... If he throws a baseball pass then he figures he needs to do it all game. Even to the point where he could have just given the ball to the guard and still kept the pace going.....

    The guy totally befuddleds me......smh

    It's ok man, it's a work in progress

    3 years on and they're still working on their chemistry as reported by JB and others. They will get it eventually

    Give them time

    No it's being discussed in the game thread. No real need for this thread.

    Howard actually has been doing this since last season

    I think it was so Harden could work off ball

    I mean Harden sometimes passes it off to beverly to bring the ball up

    Its really nothing

    Who cares? This team can't be any worse with Dwight running the point.

    You're not and he just started doing it. Even when harden it's closest to him he goes out of his way to give it to the player on the other side.

    When harden had that dunk on pau he just looked the other way

    Lol noticed that today. He actually dribbled the ball to half court then gave it to a Ariza instead of Harden.

    I've noticed this before this season but shrugged it off because we were winning. It looks even more ridiculous this year.

    Except when he damn near turns it over because of it. Just give it to the open man Dwight's an idiot sometimes.

    I noticed in Cleveland's game, after Dwight ended up on the floor after a foul, no Rocket came to his aid to help him up.

    There are some real issues with Dwight and the rest of the team. These past few weeks have been the worst basketball he's ever played in ANY uniform.

    Don't be so despairing
    JBB has been working really hard with the team, and in the next 4-5 games everything will click.
    The team feels like they are playing really well, and are a very dangerous team with a real chance to go deep. This season is not a failure - we can still make the WCF, which would see it as a repeat of last season.

    Have you really seen anything from JBB to be so critical? He is awesome, and I have no doubt the team will win the championship this year.
