    Agreed . His body will need to be ready too .

    I've already noticed his legs looking a bit tired .

    We've got to make sure he is making that step-back at a good rate

    When Capela comes back do you think Faried will start at PF and Gordon will go back to the bench?

    Last year? I assume you mean after CP3 went down. Because before that, we were on our way. Even after that, and acknowledging a 0 for 27 performance, it sure felt like the refs took the series away from us.

    Long way of saying, agree that Harden is human (although sometimes I wonder). But, I think we were actually on the brink last year and we missed for a couple of reasons.

    Held them to less points with each successive quarter.
    That's not a defensive breakdown
    1st Q - 34
    2nd Q - 27
    3rd Q - 21
    4th Q - 16
    98 Points

    LOL you expected Harden by himself with 6 man nobodies rotation to beat 2 superstar + 2 all star + 3 ref warriors?

    you know Lebron was swept right?

    They could try it...but i doubt it... we will go with the three guard line up most likely

    Don’t think so. Need to have shooters around Harden so it’s more likely he comes off the bench when CP comes back in the game for Harden.

    You know, I distinctly remember watching the series and attending two games. So, yes I did. He wasn't by himself. We had a pretty impressive lead when CP3 went down. And even then, without a historically bad shooting run and what appeared to be some iffy officiating, we were in it.

    As for Lebron being swept, I don't think we would have had a problem with him and his team. The ONLY test for the Warriors last year was us.

    As an aside, is there a reason your posts are always so smug? It wouldn't be so tiresome if you demonstrated a reason for it.

    Agreed ^^^ with above.
    Likely we roll with
    James
    CP
    Gordon
    PJ
    Capela

    Faried would likely spell Capela. KF can't space the floor like PJ can
    PJ can at least keep defenders honest by knocking down corner 3's

    Watching the highlights, it's hard to tell apart Faried and Nene. They both have the ponytails, but also there's a lot of similarity in their role for the Rockets, with slight differences depending on matchups. Great pickup for the Rockets.

    When's the last time we had 3 players with 5 assists or more. It seems like it's been awhile.

    Faried, Ennis, Green, House, Rivers will be the second team. Clark, Nene, Knight, 3rd team.

    I didn't know you were from Australia! Oh man, I hope the universe grants you a chance soon. Preferably this season!

    CP3 leadership and coaching skills is a blessing to have when he is on court

    Tucker has to do better. 2 boards as a PF is unacceptable.

    Agreed and I'm kind of surprised he hasn't reached some kind of buyout. He's perfect for what we need.
