    He breaks a lot of records with this 55+ game(like the only player besides Wilt to have at least 5 55+ games in a season, more 50+ game than Rick Barry both in a single season and career, etc), but it doesn't mean much when we ended losing the game.

    Had the refs not made the terrible call to kill us at the end of the game, Harden could have easily scored 60+ points and led us to a win. This game could have been a season defining game Harden and a huge plus for his MVP case.

    Before this game, there had been only 3 games in NBA history with at least 50 points, 8 assists, 2 steals, and 2 blocks.

    Had we won this game, the stat line plus a big comeback and Harden's clutch plays, it can well turn the MVP race around and give Harden the lead back.

    Too bad every one else is busy dick riding Giannis because he shoots "58%" (all from dunks) and Bucks have the 1 seed in the shitty East (only 5 good teams, rest are trash).

    If you put this Grizz team in the East, they would have a better record from playing all the bad teams 4x a year and be in the playoffs.

    Harden this season should be unanimous MVP and it ain't even close. Just replace Harden's name with Lebron and Rockets with Lakers. It would be an easy win for Lebron but since it's Harden and he's hated by so many casual stans, many of them in the media, they can't see with an unbiased view.

    If any ref shenanigans happen again in the playoffs in an important game against the Rockets and Harden proceed to lose the MVP, I definitely will stop watching this rigged league for awhile.

    LeBron and Wade did it literally b2b days.

    Three of the 4 happened in March, and all happened within 30 days, anniversary-wise.
