    Harden takes it to the basket. He didn't get the call on the first drive. Seems like there is a mandate to the refs saying don't call every foul on a Harden drive. It's been like that for a couple of months now.

    Jordan being the last obstacle in every scenario Harden runs through his head could be what's making him seem hesitant. He's alright. Got 10 assists to compensate

    This followed that win probability graph for the Rockets almost exactly. Get the lead halfway through the 4th and then almost blow it with dumb mistakes/bad shots the last few minutes. If Barnes would've made that wideeee open 3 at the end..

    His numbers are surprising. Honestly, did it look to you like he was having a "good" game?

    Good news is that despite great games from Paul, Crawford, and Jordan and a meh game by Harden (by his standards), we still pulled it out.

    It honestly looked like Paul was trying to start a flop after he fouled James

    That's 2/2 when I attend a Clippers-Rockets game in the Harden era. Dude drinks body armor for real.

    Not a good shooting game. But he did all right.

    Awesome game to be at. That 4th quarter run had the place rocking.

    Lol @ people acting like Harden played like a scrub just because his shot wasn't falling tonight. Dude still played like the MVP should of had 15 plus assists.

    Anyone have a gif of Harden's bounce pass between CP3's legs to Brewer?

    Amazing how a 21 and 10 game is thought of so lowly nowadays. Harden's awesome.

    Yeah it looked like he was having a very good game outside of his shooting.

    He was playing good defense, distributing the ball, and limited his turnovers.

    Sunday vs the Cavs will be a big test. Two MVP candidates go at it. One young and one old.

    May the odds be forever in the Beards favor.

    Watching the ROOT replay, just had the Harden ankle roll sequence. Amazing he got right up! Really amazing to have this guy! He is beyond motivated this season. He wants to prove to the league he is the best and he is doing it.
