    harden plays real good one on one D when a player is trying to post him up, I think he's better at guarding a SF "bigger guys" that like to post or ISO, hunk he struggles with smaller guys who like to run around. He did good in playoffs on ibaka last year so it makes sense

    Mmmm... Would you say the same thing if it's Lin? I've seen you bashing him even while performing good during wins. As for Bev, he's a very good fit/starter with Harden. Defense would and should be his first and second priority as a starter. Scoring 10 pts per game would just be icings on the cake as long as he can held the opponent PG/SG assist/points below their average.

    He also played good D on Lebron James of all people in some games versus the Heat. I think you've hit the nail on the head.

    Yeah, it sounds like Clyde is a bit biased, but isn't that what the backstory on Lin has been about his whole basketball life?

    ....and unfortunately Bev hasn't been exactly accomplishing that lately

    QUOTE=Htownballer38;8498093]I didnt bring up PG in this thread you did joker. What's up with the damn cheap shots. So you saying we cant complain about our team around here. You also complain about Lin's game so are you saying you were brain dead then pimp.

    You tripping off one game how about the rest of the Pacers games. LOL[/QUOTE]

    I really have no complaints about Lin. You have me confused. But Howard _ different story...

    And you keep thinking PG is better homie :)

    But Beverley hasn't necessarily been shutting down opposing point guards and are holding them below their average in points and assist... Has he...?

    In the playoffs, Harden does try a lot harder, like a lot of players do. I don't think one can extrapolate playoff basketball to the regular season when it comes to comparing Harden's effort level.

    It can be the PG or SG depending on who gets the switch. You should watch the game more. There are lots of switching of defensive assignments between Bev and Harden that's why he's not accidentally better in defense when operating the backcourt defense with Lin.

    Wow, Lin has not played in over a week and the game thread is still all about him. So depressing.

    Seeing how you assume you're the only one who watches games... I'll take your word for it. PGs and SGs score all of their points on defenders switching... Gotcha...!!!

    I guess when I said to watch the game "MORE", it means I'm assuming I'm the only watching the game? LOL!
