    Harden looking lazy and gassed down the stretch. Jacking up 3s, bad lazy passes, etc.

    Well we know Boston is gonna hit a 3 here. So we will be up 1 with like 20 seconds left. I don’t like how this is gonna end....

    So the story of this game is that the Celtics played with that intensity in the first half: denying the ball, quick hands, and great effort. And they ran out of gas. Their legs betrayed them, they missed shots and got outhustled down the stretch.

    Harden shot 3 straight step 3's instead of salting the game way with a drive. Then, up 5, threw the ball away for no reason.

    It's never easy with this guy, lol. It's grand slams instead of singles.

    I don't know baseball so I have no idea if the analogy works.

    Harden should give 1/3 of his salary to PJ tucker for carrying him.

    For a moments like these where Harden mentality is gone + frustration = we have wb to carry the man.

    No doubt Harden's mental errors will show up again in the playoffs. I just hope it's Russ playing at an MVP level who will get the ball.
