    He gave Frazier a chance last night and he was constantly being sought out by the lakers over and over. And when harden was on the bench the lakers cut it to within 4-5 being down almost 20. It’s stuff like that that happens where the bench doesn’t do itself any favors

    You are absolutely right with Frazier, but what about DeMarre Carroll and Luc Mbah a Moute? I think that the intensity that this style of play requires forces a larger rotation to not overload the players, mainly Harden, Westbrook and Tucker.

    carroll has looked absolutely terrible in the scrimmage games. dude couldn't even make a point blank layup at the rim, uncovered. definitely not worried about him getting in the game. Moute probably isn't close apparently. dude hasn't played in basically a year coming off injury. Moute was a clear rotational piece previously with MDA. if he was actually ready, there is no reason why MDA wouldn't play him. he isn't some new player under coach

    Rockets defense is severely underrated by CF.

    Need RoCo to move up to 2nd and this is a wrap.

    Needs 10 steals in 3 games.

    Harden is the GOAT

    AND

    the Defense has been pretty damn good most of the time in the bubble, especially in the 4th

    How old is this article, states Harden is 5th in steals.

    Harden leads the NBA in steals.
