    I think they are playing to get into the 4th qtr.

    Like they are saving energy for the 4th. Only thing I can think of, it's crazy. It's like they come out so relaxed and content.

    You've had 6 games to figure out how to play competent basketball in the third quarter Mchale.

    Don't you dare blow this with your incompetence

    Harden has to remember he has a floater, he used it so well against Dallas. Make Jordan guard him in the mid range.

    Bench Harden.. He doesn't move the ball, slows everybody down with his low energy

    What happens at halftime? Our third quarters are consistently awful and it seems like it was the same as round 1.

    This team is just incapable of putting together 4 consecutive quarters of NBA basketball, aren't they?

    The highs are so high. But...

    Too many lows.

    Pick it up.

    Maybe they'll bench his ass again.

    Game 2 - Rockets make run with Harden on the bench
    Game 6 - Rockets make run with Harden on the bench [the entire Q]

    I'm not getting Harden's vibe. He asks for the ball then looks pensive when he gets it.

    Where the heck's his head at. I hope we start routing the ball to Dwert more going forward.

    It's so frustrating, how can you just let up after a 10 point lead, it's not like they are playing great defense, we are just ****ing slow and running the same thing and they don't even bother to guard Dwight because he's not involved at all.

    Don't reward Harden by letting him play at the expense of our win
