You're usually begging your superstar players to attack the basket. I don't think two dozen horses with lassos could keep James Harden from going hard to the hoop. Watch this guy ... just amazing, especially in the final minute. Teams KNOW this is what he does and they still can't stop it.


James Harden scores 17 points in the fourth quarter to help the Rockets beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 87-84 on 12/26/2012

Awesome 4th quarter.

__________________
How can Jeremy Lin put up numbers like he did during Linsanity if he's not being used the same way that he was being used during Linsanity?

For those who claim that Jeremy Lin is not a superstar: in the games where Lin was the primary decision-maker on his team, he has averaged 23 points and 8 assists per game, and his teams have gone 14-5.

2013-2014 Predictions (made during the preseason)
1. James Harden will finish at least #3 in the MVP voting.
2. Rockets will win at least 60 games.

You know he is going left, you know he will probably go for the eurostep, but there you aren't stopping him.

Thanks for the video!

Wasn't even "4th quarter", alot of those points were in the last 6 minutes of the game.

Just unreal.

Speaking of wild horses, this is how asst coach Chris Finch (one of our offensive coordinators) envisioned our offense to be. This is taken from http://www.nba.com/rockets/news/qa-chris-finch before the season started.

JCF: I know you believe in freedom on offense and virtually no freedom on defense. What do you want to define this team offensively?

CF: I want us to always be on the attack. I want us to look and feel like a herd of horses coming down the floor every single time. I want us to really, first and foremost, put the defense under pressure every way possible and I want to see us share the ball. We want to run and keep the tempo high, but to do that we have to value the right shots and we have to do it unselfishly.


Certainly the team seems to have bought into this plan and we are reaping the benefits of it. Tonight, Harden was a one-man runaway herd.

Thanks Clutch, although Harden has been great his entire time as a rocket, you can see his game improving as the season goes on. His clutch plays here really show how much of superstar this guy can be.

The last two possessions were high pick and rolls with Asik and Harden. I wonder if we were saving that for crunch time on purpose...if so, nicely played McHale.

They were very high out, to the point of little significance.

Harden broke down 3 players in the middle of the court, three times in a row...twice in the last minute.

poor Barea. Sorry Harden simply ignored your presence.

Morris left Mchale hanging. On a serious note. Jeremly Lin with the biggest shot of the night after schved hit his 3.

James Harden is on the cusp of being on Rudy Gays level, I mean Dwayne Wade in his prime.
