    I wish DM had not made that trade. Harden must've insisted. What we got was not Russ-- at least not this series-- but something more like "The New Chris Paul." That Dan Tony played Russ so much this series really pisses me off. Ah, well, let's go Rockets, and beat the Lebrons three in a row.

    LeBron...16pts...15 rebs...9 assists

    Harden...21 pts....4 rebs...10 assists. Westbrook and Harden 46 points... AD & LeBron 45 points.

    Just think what we could have had if HOUSE was allowed to play.:mad: Damn the NBA.

    Harden has these all too common performances where he just looks like a beaten man... 2-11 & 1-6 3pt, had no interest in taking late game shots or imposing his will, just casually walking up & down the court like it's a backyard pickup game & 0 sense of urgency. I'm honestly tired of watching him half-ass it when things aren't going well. Yes he's an incredible talent when he has it rolling but we've seen way too many performances like tonight from him where he looks aloof, unable to beat his man off the dribble & just throws up garbage/contested long range bricks. I think we should look for trades for him before there's a significant decline in his game & get back a decent haul (Hopefully similar to PG13)

    Well, I'm over small ball now. If we aren't gonna take 50 three's then we can't match up on 2 pt shots when getting totally dominated at the rim.

    I miss all those ally oops to Clint. I miss having a big time rebounder and shot blocker.
    PJ might be great on defense but with Clint at center we didn't have to worry about him getting 3 points in 2 games.

    EG had 19 points. House averages over 11pts and plays great defense. With his point average, we would have won this game. Oh well, next game...one game at a time.

    Don't even care. Didn't watch the 2nd half. Where are all you nut huggers at? Are we allowed to critique our team without you idiots calling us haters?
