    I was trying to figure out WHY House was in the game late? When Green was on fire?

    Maybe bc we needed a lot more defensive help then offensive help while harden was going off? Just a thought.

    I swear, every time there is a topic trend (right now it's HOUSE), lames begin pointless threads instead of posting in one of the hundreds of recent and also crappy posts about 'hot topic trend'.

    It's like girls that post a bunch of selfies with stupid captions-inspirational quotes-or what not. Except the selfies are these stupid threads being created and stupid captions being the stupid analysis/dumb question of the thread by OP.

    House played like garbage in winning time, but he earned his spot on the floor (in MDA's eyes without EG) in winning time with his play in previous games. I don't blame MDA for putting him back in the game. Even when House made so many bonehead plays down the stretch, I was fully ready for House to make a 3 point shot if he was passed the ball when Clint got that rebound in the 4th.

    I have grown to hate House late in this game.

    Well, now we know House is human. Yes, he did struggle mightily down the stretch. Hopefully he can learn from the experience.

    I guess tonight we were reminded how much Gordon means to this team.

    Anyone who believes that Green is more reliable in the clutch when you need to defend, I don't know what to tell you.

    They switched everything and House gave him a relatively bigger body.

    Better for him to make boneheaded plays now than in the playoffs.

    House seemed like he gave us a negative at the end of the game. Missed every shot...turned the ball over. He looked horribly skittish out there...just crumbling in the moment.

    1) Gordon was out and Shumpert sucks, so either House or Green is getting those minutes.

    2) Green is a defensive liability.

    3) House was terrific in the clutch against Phoenix last Friday and has been playing well since his return to the NBA.

    Honestly, I have no problem with D'Antoni leaving House out there in crunch time. Sure, hindsight is 20/20, but I'd much rather D'Antoni trust one of his young players than to keep riding Shumpert just because he has a ring and previously played for him in NY.
