    If Howard can't use Gorilla Glue on hi hands he shouldn't start

    lol what he goes quiet in one quarter, had 16 in the third to keep us afloat

    he did his job, where was everyone else, can't expect him to carry the team every night. This is why we are not a good team, need consistent efforts from others every night

    Harden & Howard dont give a ****... it's clear as day, Harden with his continuous lazy, moronic bounce passes and typical matador defense and Howard is a simpleton that can't play smart defense after 12 yrs in the league... it's time we let these 2 losers go

    I would rather Harden do nothing in the 4th with zero turnovers than do nothing with 3 turnovers within the last 5 minutes of the game.

    We lost 2 games this season to the Hawks because of dwight he refuses to go out and defend Horford when he shot 3s and it was the differnce both games.

    The Rockets need a real starter caliber PG so we don't have to watch James with the ball constantly turning it over. A PG that can actually do something. Beverley didn't do s***.

    Agreed. There was no defense so I'm ok with Ariza sitting. I know for a fact DMO would have at least tried to get out on the shooters or play some help defense with the inevitable SWITCH ON DEFENSE.

    Harden didn't do anything when it mattered, which was the 4th Q. I won't say he was the main reason the team lost tonight but he didn't do what he needed to do when the game was still right there. I feel JB is the biggest culprit of this game actually.

    Why is Goudelock still not in the game. JB is a moron.

    Bev wasn't our only problem today, when he plays OK, he is a good complimentary to Harden.

    And they all came within the last 5 minutes of the game(I think. Have to check the play by play).

    Yeah never mind his repeated half-hearted lazy bounce passes that were picked off for easy buckets and his dribbling the air out for 22 secs with no where to go...

    When it mattered....the whole 48 minutes matters, not just the last 5-6 minutes of a game

    The Warriors put teams away before the last 5-6 minutes of games usually

    Isn't this basically LMA or Melo? Mid range shooters who can occasionally hit a three but aren't known for defense or great passing.

    no, I'm pretty sure you're right. Pretty sure they all happened within about 90 seconds.

    on edit: box score says the first one in that stretch was credited to Beasley, then Harden's two. Says Harden's first TO was a bad pass in the 3rd quarter.
