    No excuse this game...no ****ING excuse. This dude has screwed Harden more than anybody else. Talk about obvious in game adjustments and being complacent. This guy sits on the bench with his thumb up his ass

    Harden only 16 shots tonight is scandalous. He let Chris Paul & Capela blow this one away without making any adjustments.

    Nene must have played terrible this game right?

    I mean why in god's name would you not play him in the 4th?

    Clint must be rebounding great this series.

    Or he must be defending great.

    No wait he's scoring .

    Why the **** would you not have nene in the game.

    Why the **** would you not call a time out and go "How about we get Harden the ball more"

    this is the first time i would REALLY put some blame on him since he has been here. its like they didnt know what to do once KD was out. they couldnt figure out how they should play them. i understand they still have talent, but this is still inexcusable. how can we struggle to score, and struggle to defend without their best scorer, and key defender ? wtf were they saying in timeouts ? why was james not even getting any shot attempts ?

    He's been bad in so many areas it really shouldn't be so stressed now of all times. He was awful in the Utah series.

    The end of the game was the worst strategy I've seen in a long time. Why not foul? They let the clock run. Dumb. Didn't even give us a chance to come back.

    I blame Harden more. He barely touched the ball in the 4th.

    Playing Capela just to run that alley oop play is one of the dumbest, worst panic moves I've ever seen.

    One of the worst losses in Houston Rockets history and likely the dumbest. MDA is an absolute idiot for not putting more urgency into the teams mindset and make 1 adjustment right after the injury.

    Coach should run plays to get him the ball.

    Phil wouldn’t let Kerr dominate the ball over Jordan or Fisher dominate the ball over Kobe.

    Totally agree. I was coming out of my seat watching Capela re-enter the game. This was by far his worst damn game of the playoffs. Had it not been for the last two dishes by Harden for easy dunks in the last 3 minutes of the game he would’ve ended it with only 2 damn points. And it wasn’t just the lack of scoring either. At times he just looked totally lost on the court I was letting sail over his head without grabbing the rebound. His energy was horrible. No real hustle, unlike Tucker.

    Meanwhile Draymond Green fouls out and they should’ve punished the Warriors by putting in Nene. Hell, even with Green in the game Nene should’ve played more than 4 minutes. Makes no freaking sense. They can’t handle him down low with their small lineup.

    Another huge mistake was leaving Paul in a game. He went 3-14 tonight and had multiple turnovers. He’s too short to grab a damn rebound when the game is on the line, too. And as much as I don’t like Shumpert I’d would’ve much rather seen him or Gerald Green in the game just for rebounding and defensive purposes. We gave up the game because we couldn’t grab a rebound. Simply stupid!!!

    Bench was terrible today with Rivers and Shump on box +\-

    Too many minutes for Harden (45 min) and he didn’t want to win in the end. Shouldn’t matter how tired you are, this is the damn season the line.

    Capela softer than cotton candy

    CP3 and Gordon couldn’t make anything in the first half. CP3 has hit a ceiling, he doesn’t have the quickness or the lift on his shot.

    Are you kidding me!?!?!?! What is the Harden play!? The Harden play is Here take the ball get buckets.

    Harden was out there at half court walking passing to CP3.. It's so ****ing frustrating I cant stand it.

    they have plays where harden plays off ball, Gordon or tucker sets a screen, and harden gets it to iso.

    They had Posssesions where only cp3 and Gordon touched the ball.

    It’s horrible coaching by Dantoni.
