    I'm sorry... What?

    He hasn't at all. This last game was the exact same story we have been seeing for two seasons now? :(

    guy leads and carries the heaviest burden on offense, leads SGs in rebounds, and defends as good as everyone else on our team

    some prespective to people whining about Harden's TO's

    from 7.5 asts last yr to 11.6 this yr - 55% better
    from 4.6 TOs to 5.7 TOs - 24% increase
    from 1.63 ATO ratio to 2.04 - 25% better

    other star's ATO ratios this yr

    Dwyane Wade, SG 1.37
    Carmelo Anthony, SF 1.38
    Kawhi Leonard, SF 1.51
    Paul Millsap, PF 1.52
    Monta Ellis, SG 1.53
    D'Angelo Russell, PG 1.58
    Avery Bradley, SG 1.59
    Zach LaVine, PG 1.59
    DeMar DeRozan, SG 1.65
    Bradley Beal, SG 1.68
    Eric Bledsoe, PG 1.72
    Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF 1.73
    Derrick Rose, PG 1.83
    Kyrie Irving, PG 1.85
    Damian Lillard, PG 1.98
    Gordon Hayward, SF 2.00
    Jimmy Butler, SF 2.00
    Dennis Schroder, PG 2.02
    Stephen Curry, PG 2.02
    Russell Westbrook, PG 2.02

    if he can bring down is apg to the 4 vicinity I'll be a happy camper

    You're right... For some reason I thought he only had a few TO's these last couple of games. I guess when he doesn't go over 5 it's more notable to me.

    His best TO-less games are against Utah for some reason, 0 and 2. And also, for a guy that leads the league in TO's, you'd think he'd be more conscious of his passing.

    We won this despite Anderson being a complete no show, several defensive lapses, and sluggish periods on offense. The 3rd quarter was a disaster, we gave up 35 points. And we almost gave it away at the end. But whatever, an escape win counts just as much as a dominating one.

    Bump! The Celtics blew out Orlando tonight by 30. Perhaps we had a close game because they were as good as advertised. One point game followed by 30+ point blowouts.... we're both good! But please note we were better by 1.

    The crushing loss delivered by the Rockets was huge motivation;)

    The Rockets and Ward have a lot in common, both outsmarted and "crushed" their opponents.
