    Yeah, he hasn’t been moving well lately. I was wondering if an injury is the real problem.

    injury certainly seems like the best explanation. earlier this year he scored 60 in 3 quarters against atlanta. the first game of this horrible stretch was against atlanta and it seemed like he couldn't get past anybody and shot 9-34. since nothing about atlanta tells me their D got 10 times better, it certainly seems like harden is hurt (he's played through injuries before and frankly, he usually plays poorly when doing so).

    I don't think he would have been practicing more after the game if it was an injury issue.

    I don't doubt. I have always been amazed by his durability and he has taken some shots this year.

    I said this earlier. He was sporting a knee brace a couple of weeks back. Plus had a knee support on it as well. He just doesn’t seem to have any lift right know. It was common knowledge he had a knee issue and I suspect he is playing with through it

    Sick tired of finding excuses for Harden’s poor playing. Why you guys act so surprised that Harden play like this.

    Probably has some mild knee tendinitis.

    Because he doesn’t usually play this way.

    Doctor next to me saw me reading this thread and said " well sit his ass down then, they probably win more games without him".

    He doesn’t look hurt to me. He just can’t make a bucket. It seems like this skid started after about five days of rest. Could just be a bad stretch. I do wish he would cut back on the three pointers until he finds his stroke. Westbrook has been much better since he cut back on those long shots.

    What are you, blind and stupid?

    At least you're consistent.

    This is the most benign thread, but you just cant.help.yourself.

    Ahaha

    No, it’s pretty stupid. It’s not even based on a rational conjecture, more like fantasy. Perhaps you should offer evidence to the such rather than random thoughts that occur to you

    He's either hurt, worn out, or he's quitting. I hope it is not the last one.
