    Maybe if he had done that in the 4th when they were up 6 and he's chucking 40fters up it might have been a good idea... I see why the media ***** on the guy, he goes stupid sometimes and tonight in the waning mins of the game was a prime exp. I get it that he didn't have any help from Russ (who was just god damn disgusting to watch tonight !!!!) but no other players took a shot except capela

    This team is exactly what they looked like at the beginning of the season a nothing more than a pretender

    It's not that he just shoots bad he takes terrible shots. The game shifted at the end of the third quarter when Harden went out he just started jacking up bad shot after bad shot and turning the ball over. His decision making is terrible!

    Our guys got to take this on the chin and learn from it. Their is no way this should have been a game. They didnt put their foot on the pedal and finish the game. Sometimes it seemed that they were arrogant and dis-interested. James and Russ took to many shots and were a little selfish. They went away from what got them the lead and they started taking turns. Its a good lesson to learn as a team--Take care of your business and play your game dont bog down and start playing one dimensional basketball

    If they are so bad that they can't give you 10-15 minutes a night they should be cut.

    Harden is the only player in the history of the NBA who loses a game on a dunk that went in and turned into a circus shot that looked like it missed. LOL

    F*CKING HELL! THIS TEAM IS CURSED!

    Wish we had a coach that would try to coach during times like these...

    It really annoys me that Harden seems to REFUSE taking step back or pull-up midrange shots in the clutch. Instead, multiple times he got stuffed at the rim and to end the game, gets called for the offensive foul.

    This is what happens when Harden has a terrible shooting night. None of the other starters seem step up (not including Capela). I know Rivers shot well, but he's been quite **** this season.

    I know we can all blame Harden, but he has so much pressure on him every night to carry the load that Westbrook should be doing better. He's been shooting like complete **** the last 5 games or so.

    The fact we seem to bottle big leads is disgusting. It all comes down to the coach. He did it plenty of times last season, so there's no excuse of why it should happen so much this season.

    Becky. Need someone from the Pop tree.
    She's playing behind Timmy now, just like Scola was going to be, before we gave them the Greek bag o' jockstraps for him.
    Russ and Harden wouldn't dare jake on her, the political fallout would be too great and Commissioner Nosferatu would visit them in the night.

    What an absolute MELTDOWN.
    Got robbed on the 'faux' dunk by James.
    But should have never come to that. We let Walker go all Kobe on us. 19 pts in the 4th

    Also, it sure seemed the refs were determined that SA was going to come away with a W.
    They were rewarding every SA flop in the 4th and beyond.

    Just a total choke job. Giving up a 22 pt lead in the 4th is inexcusable.
    Instead of playing to 'win', we were coasting and playing 'not to lose' and just hang on
    and kill the clock. I hope we learn from this.

    Ben McLemore was a +19 in 27 minutes and DID NOT PLAY since mid-way of the 4th quarter. Unreal. Great recognition MDA!

    There's no way Harden and Westbrook are serious about competing for a championship. Maybe emotionally they are but realistically they aren't doing what is takes or enough of what it takes to be taken seriously as championship contenders. It takes a team and we just don't play as one consistently enough on both sides of the floor or in the trenches of the game from a coaching/execution standpoint.

    We actually missed McLemore
    Cause no one else got any time
    After he went down

    I think that same 5 stayed on the floor the rest of the game

    It makes no sense Russ has 30+ shot attempts.


    Why MDA always was played like clown by Pop?

    Completely agree on all points, but that’s why you can’t have Westbrook playing off the ball. Which is a problem because letting him facilitate the offense with the ball in his hands is not better than allowing Harden to create for himself and others.
