    Hes barely making shots and he was missing free throws. He also has alot of turnovers...Jeremy Lin is also doing bad. Only Patrick Patterson is doing good

    Because a defense can focus on him and let everyone else score but the others dont do a good job of doing that.

    He spent too much time at the strip club last night.

    Rockets shooters are not hitting their shots. Plus, the offense is just all out of whack, definitely no fun to watch. I will always miss Rick Adelman's offense. I can't believe we let him go.

    Why is this thread so bad?

    It barely has any substance and is missing a lot of interesting thread-worthy points. It also has a lot of improper English. Even your sig is bad. Only the first response to your thread is good.

    Seems to me he's pressing and trying to do too much. His first 6 quarters as a Rockets, he was just free-flowing playing basketball. Ever since, he seems to be trying to hit the home run, either trying to get all the way to the basket or settling for a three most of the time.

    Maybe it's trying to show his new fans at home how good he is and trying to do too much. Maybe all the hype and craziness of the first week has made him crash a little bit.

    I'd bet he turns it around in the next game or two, especially on the road.

    Btw, this is going to be the difference between Martin and Harden where Martin would score 18 in the first quarter and 0 in the 4th. I think Harden, despite his bad game, can still score 8-12 this quarter.

    Hope so. I think he's playing a step slower than he usually does, I just hope the ankle problem isn't going to linger.

    Because he spends more time making it rain in strip clubs than working on his game ;)

    Because McHale's offense is a one trick pony. ISO Harden, let everyone else sit around. Give the ball to Harden, let him be PG, and let Jeremy Lin sit on the corner as a 3 point spot up shooter the whole game. ISO Harden and if that doesn't work have everyone else chuck up 3's. Horrible offensive system by a horrible incompetent coach.

    I like how he tried to get the crowd into it. It's a two possession game and he knows it.

    George Karl. Notice how the defense moves with Harden and Lin.
