James Harden and Dwight Howard combined to hit 10-11 shots for 24 points in the first 8-9 minutes of the third quarter. Full video highlights of how they scored in the third:

One thing I noticed: On the nice Harden and-1... Dwight is on one side of the basket and Omer is on the other.

Dwight and Omer looked good defensively in this game. It's not going to work this well against many teams, but I think this is actually a viable option.

That crossover + stepback on Belinelli makes my heart smile.

I think it's time for everyone who was against signing Howard to eat Crow, Asik wouldn't have made half those plays

No, Asik wouldn't of made some of those plays but it is sure nice having two bigs that can rebound in traffic and defend the paint. Asik just needs to get into game shape and realize this is his best chance to get to the Finals.

anyone else notice asik looking displeased throughout the game? he seems to lack the hustle that made him so productive last year. in a lot of sets on offense, he seemsed to just be standing in the corner...

or am i just making a mountain out of a mole hill

I think it might work against some of the best teams in the league (Spurs, Clippers, Grizzlies) but I agree that on a regular basis, Asik has to come off the bench.

Where can we donate to help Clutch upgrade to a HD capture card?

Thanks for uploading.

The fact that they were able to do this with Asik on the floor is what really impresses me the most. They stifled the Spurs defensively and were unstoppable offensively during that run and got lots of quality shots in the paint. Spacing wasn't an issue at all. I'm pumped!

Howard and Asik will be really important in the regular season when you really need to spell those guys on back to backs. In fact I think that once the season starts, the question won't be "how can we get Howard and Asik to play together" but rather "how can we ensure one of them is on the court at all times?" I might as well guarantee you that if you add up Howard's season minutes + Asik's season minutes, it will be less than 48x82 minutes. Injuries and rest and Popovichian benchings we'll all need a healthy dose of this year.

Anyone have vid clip of when Howard passed to Asik underneath the basket and Omer got fouled by Duncan doing a reverse layup?

LOL... Asik will start to get his points once he gets back fully into playing shape. There will be plenty of easy dunks for him at the rim. But for now, I like how they just have him get out of the way and collapse to the rim when a shot goes up.

I'm just going to keep saying what I've been saying: keep Asik! It's going to be a great season.

Looked like Asik was arguing with Dwight on the court. I hope I misread that, but if not then either Asik needs to get with the plan or we will have problems. Aside from that it looks like they could actually make Dwight/Asik work.

But damn, this is encouraging. THIS is why we got Dwight.He and Harden will feed off of each other. And they open so many opportunities for others. Is there *any* chance that Casspi has this sort of preseason showing without their presence? No way.

Clutch is right - other GMs and coaches have to be getting nervous watching an exhibition like this.
