    Harden shot like ass today, but overall his defense was good and he made good decisions, too. Wish his percentages were swapped with the Suns game, but alas, that’s not how life works.

    His presence opens up the court for everybody, so he’s always a plus in the floor, especially when he’s playing hard on D. Our role plays don’t get a pass either, they need to make those wide open 3s. It’s what our team is built around.

    This one hurt. What a ridiculous shot man, and from Biejiclas twin. The bad luck this season sucks.

    Playing small ball to chuck up more bricks is beyond me

    A work in progress, a lot of good things. Need EG back to form and a replacement of House.

    I guess the Lakers are bad because they kept it close with Golden State last night, and so are the Clippers because they lost to the Timberwolves???

    Agreed. I’d love to have a knock down shooter like Reddick.

    Rockets probably aren't a real contender for the title, but IMO they are so much more enjoyable to watch since the trade.

    I don't think playing a short rotation, literally and figuratively is the best strategy, but it's much more entertaining than whatever was going on before.

    Our guys are too streaky to last and win in the playoffs. House, Rivers, and Tucker just aren't consistently bringing enough pts on offense.

    I lost money on this one and I'm not mad either. I like where this team is going. Harden will wake up eventually, and these type of games will be blow outs.

    Hopefully they make that addition a priority in the off season.

    Still have the best odds after the Clippers and Lakers in the West.

    5 seed is probably the worst seed but I doubt we will suck enough to be 6/7 seed.

    Settled for tons of bad shots when they clearly weren’t going in. He’s done it a lot this season.
