    Now watch him go 0-fer in the next game.

    In all seriousness though, I hope he attacks the basket more, like he did today.

    Good Lawd! Austin Rivers looked like he took Hardens powers.

    This is historic. This is amazing.

    The confidence he played with is just amazing, and I really hope he keeps this going and be that Firestarter that EG was, or even better.

    Rivers may have played himself into a nice contract next season. He can help a lot of teams with play like today. We will gladly keep him if he wants to stay and not get paid & Proudly say he is one of our bench leaders.

    My hope is that we can trade Gordon for a forward and keep Rivers

    I really like his composure and what he is doing for this team. He’s got the right attitude and has bought into it.

    Was his previous career high against the Rockets? I seem to remember it was in a Clippers vs Rockets game a few years back. Doesn't mean he's gonna start averaging 20 lol.

    He is in ascendancy, Gordon is in descendency.

    Harden needs to have a heart to heart with EGo too.

    It feels weird to love two players that I used to hate so much

    Houston! We have our new 6th-man of the year. This dude chose to stay and embrace the Rockets... I hope he destroys the clippers in the Finals... which would probably be his dream come true.

    Mine too.

    If Rivers can do what he did when asked then he is not a minimum contract player.

    Random thought:
    To trade a player another team has to want said player and see value in said player then and most think said player can fill void in their team. Then also just as important, the other team has to offer a player of their own that does all the same things back to the other team. The last step is where most deals fall apart the new and old player’s contracts have to fit together and all the other fill-ins need to make both teams better going forward.

    If said player is aging Eric Gordon and his new extended contract
    VS
    Free Agent Austin Rivers

    which one will most teams pick?
