    Michael Eaves, doing the highlights, on a standard Harden step-back 3: "That's a walk. They don't call it."

    Eaves, on another shot: "Harden, again from 3, pushes off. No call, then he banks it in? Come on, yo."

    Tim Legler: "These Rockets really steal a game that the Lakers thoroughly outplayed them most of the night."

    Comments on Tucker getting called for a clean strip? On Gordon being mowed down with no whistle? On the refs giving the Lakers a 4-point play in OT by whistling Nene for holding his position for a rebound? Nada. Not mentioned.

    This was an embarrassing performance from what's supposed to be an objective sports network.

    I knew there had to be a catch. They gave way too much love before the game to Harden.

    Really dont understand why people watch espn anymore lol

    But honestly what do you expect? They are trying to pander to their biggest market, LA, and their fans.

    Lakers fans WANT and NEED to hear that to feel better.

    I think JH stole their cheese, and that's why they complained so much.

    It’s a narrative
    James harden and the rockets are the bad guys
    Lebron and the lakers are the good guys

    I mean espn didn’t like us when we won two championships and never mentions Hakeem Olajuwon

    So I except nothing less than no respect

    Actually most coverage of Harden has been overwhelmingly positive. You can’t deny greatness at this point.

    Whenever you beat LAL, all the hidden bandwagon fans come out with their twitter knowledge. Most of the media however will have no choice but to say “damn he’s good”

    The media love the Lakers. They want to make them relevant again.
