    Won on hardens greatness but man the defense is not good. They look ok for stretches but still to many lapses.

    I liked Hardens willingness to let Wall get going and wall looked better as the game went on. Wall unlike Russ knows Harden is the superior player and looks like he has no issues. They look like a nice combo

    Tate is now officially a steal. Dude is like Tucker was on defense 3 years ago. What a steal

    John Wall put on his Carlton Voice for that interview. I want to see him throw up blood gang signs.

    Is Cousins on a minutes restriction? I thought he'd get more playing time than he did.

    Good win for a team that's barely even played together (or at all in some cases).

    Harden is literally the team, I think we go straight to the lottery when we trade him. Holy christ he's a one man show

    Nice to have a win. This team is exactly what I thought they would be. 6th seed at best. Terrible defensive team. Wood is atrocious on that side of the ball.
    Wall and Harden will not fit well this year.
    The team is best with the ball in Hardens hands and Wall will always be a slightly better version of Westbrook which anyway you cut it is a terrible fit with James. Hopefully they make some roster moves before James really wants out.

    Our defense needs to improve but this kings team plays hard and very athletic. Cousins is still rusty. Nice win for the new year eve.
