    It appears he is still inactive, while TJones, activated to take his place, has had a string of DNP-CDs.

    Last night the backup guards for ATL scored 34, our backs scored 3.

    Tough game. Bev & Jet were both pretty bad, and apparently nobody could stop Schroeder which killed us in the 3rd/4th. Howard also struggled a bit - I felt like against Horford/Milsap, he should have been much much more involved. They were pulling him out on defense, so if you're not going to take advantage of Howard on offense then you really should have just put in DMo @ the 5, Beas at the 4 for crunch time.

    We've got 8 extremely tough games upcoming - wouldn't be surprised to go 2-6. Preference has been and continues to be to sit H&H once the 6th seed becomes unattainable. If we can go on a 3 or 4 game run, great, otherwise I think it's time to start planning for next year.

    I tend to believe this.

    Harden has proven his durability and physcal toughness/pain threshold. He deserves major respect in those regards.

    I think Beasley is a better all around player than Harden. I would rather have him with the ball in the end as well.

    Yep. Harden finally has his Batman so he can fully embrace his Robin role.

    As much as I like what Beasley is doing and as much as we need another person that can get their own shot that's pretty much all he does. Harden has to sacrifice his game in order to get other people involved including Beasley who had a great 30 point game in under 30 minutes but didn't have one assist. Meanwhile Harden a guy who is practically never injured and when he is injured he doesn't complain and just plays through it is averaging more assists than most point guards in this league and this board somehow manages to ignore that and **** on the guy every chance you get it's just crazy. His defense is below average but you guys are getting out of hand. This same team without Harden is basically the Nuggets.

    Imagine what the board would be like if Harden had 30 points and zero assists.

    "Harden just wants points! Not wins!"

    "Harden's not even TRYING to get his teammates involved!"

    "Harden is the definition of selfish. ZERO assists? Embarrassing!"

    LOL, you're right and I've already seen it when he had a 4 assist game earlier this year people where calling him a ball hog. These guys are starting to sound like Laker fans its disgusting. Meanwhile Howard, Brewer, Terry played like **** per usually and Ariza had an awful game but yeah those 2 turnovers are why we lost, ok, lol. They make no sense.
