    I think we had no choice if not double down on the small ball strategy. But it's showing it may not be sustainable simply due to it not working if they aren't 110% intense every game

    Well, even I, delirious on wildfire smoke and lack of sunlight, am about to give up after that last Russ turnover.

    Harden is the easiest guard in the league to double team.

    The Capela trade obviously.

    Capela was THE BIGGEST reason they lost to GS both times. Horrendous underperformances.

    Couldn’t switch and got his lob threat deleted by Draymond and Looney. Looney outright outplayed him.



    They had plenty of avenues to improve the team.

    Capela trade, plus some other trade using the insane amount of picks from the CP3 trade or even not as many picks, to get a modern center.

    HELL Hartenstein wasn’t bad at all. He was GOOD. And could shoot 3’s.

    Harden can't go 2-11 with 5 turnovers in a decisive game.

    they don't get past Utah without Capela, and the Warriors are simply a better small ball team than the Rockets.

    I guess Harden has decided he isn't going to shoot anymore...
