    Just FYI, Clutch, my "like" was for the chest bump. I would've McHale clapped for the defense if given that button. Not that the defense was a small thing, I just really got enthused over the SG/HC bonding.

    I know Beverly gets a lot of credit for this but don't know if anybody noticed that Westbrook was about to go left but had to reset because of that show by Harden

    His speed and ability to stay in front of his man is back to the days when he was considerd the best defensive guard in the league.Last season he would try to gamble because he struggled to stay in front of his man, but with his knee back to 100% he wont get beat off the dribble. To stay in front of a guy like Westbrook shows he is back.

    Another positive is his offensive rebounding.He is averaging 9 boards(3 offensive) in the last two games .

    This squad is having fun again. It's like having the same energy as the old 07-09 squads, except with the talent of 2016!

    I still have my sights set on a 2nd round appearance this year, but dang it's nice to have fun again.

    There is another clip after he bumped Mike and he was walking off the court and yelling : I am a dog.

    That was gold.

    .... This team is just so much fun to watch. They all seem to genuinely enjoy playing together, and I love everyone's role.

    Gordon understands he's the spark plug off the bench and has the huge green light to take over especially when Harden takes a seat.

    Bev realizes he's in there for one job, and. It did he do it and then some tonight. If he's hitting his 3 that's the icing on the cake, but he knows he's in there to play as hard as he possibly can and to give that first unit life, and he's doing it better than I could have imagined.

    Huge props for MDA to use the rotation of Bev and Gordon as well as he is.

    I'm speechless about the defense from Pat at the end.

    The funny thing is we're not that great on defense but SO MUCH better than last year. It makes a difference when you have a coach that knows what he's doing

    Noticed it too. Helps that Roberson is such a liability on offense too. Harden was almost stuck in no man's land on the help though (in the middle where he wouldn't have affected either a WB drive or Roberson shot).

    Bev low key last year took a huge step forward on Offense with 3's and playmaking and now it seems he is back to playing defense. This is the Type of player that wins chips.

    It's also nice when we have a coach that knows how to run a play coming out of a timeout that doesn't end up in a turnover.
