    If you got that from bbreference, then the 11% is for 2-pointers, not all shots.

    fwiw: Nash was even less that 11% for his time with MDA, and .136 for his career. Same with Chris Paul; his career ave is 11%. Looks like ball-dominant, pure PGs don't get assisted on 2s, which makes sense. Most of them probably come from shooting in PnR and fastbreak keepers. That said, Nash and Paul get a lot more of their 3s assisted, 50% and 40% respectively.

    I'm curious about Harden's rebounding in the context of the Rockets' (defensive) rebounding scheme. Anyone care to explain how Harden's rebounding role fits within the context of the rebounding scheme (and vice-versa perhaps)? Per-minute, Harden is currently the team's 2nd-leading rebounder among rotation players. That's surprising to me, and I wonder what the coaching strategy is here, and how much credit Harden deserves for his rebounding numbers versus the team's defensive strategy. Also, is this a good thing?

    To date, it looks like the Rockets are getting significantly more defensive rebounds in wins (36) than losses (29). (I can't finding team rebounding differential stats, but would be interested in that as well). Harden similarly is averaging 7.1 defensive boards per game in wins compared to 5.6 in losses (for whatever that's worth). I know this is a small sample, so I'm not getting carried away.

    If the Rockets' approach to defensive rebounding this season is being discussed extensively elsewhere, feel free to point me to it.

    I wish this dude gave a **** for 4 whole quarters every night. I'm tired of him being so relaxed during parts of games. Protect the ball and play with heart and passion for a full game. You want to be an MVP so go out and prove you are one.

    He had a shocker tonight. Looked like he was going through the motions. Careless with the ball .

    His rebounding is mainly because he roams around on defense a lot and rather gets in position for the rebound, so he can dribble up the ball, than focus on defending. He boxes out at times sure, but when against bigger guys, I rarely see him use that fat body of his.
