    Harden is a ******* loser - blocked by ****ing Ginobilli.

    This game is full proof of the folly of making Harden our PG - a PG does not make these kind of mistakes at the end of a tight game. Harden has many talents but he's not Steve Nash and should never have tried. He lifts this team but he is our ceiling as well - until he learns to play off the ball, we're stuck having him initiate the offense because otherwise he contributes nothing. That may work in the regular season, but in the playoffs, his lack of true PG instincts leads to turnovers and broken plays.

    Exactly you can tell he didn't have the fire but they still put the ball in his hands a smart coach like pop puts it in many players hands

    Harden is a turnover machine under pressure. He turns the ball more than any Superstar in basketball history.

    Can someone tell me when Morey invited McHale back onto the sideline?

    That was a f*cking horrendous performance by D'Antoni in OT.

    I'm seething right now.

    Harden. Wow. Could you have sh*t the bed any more than what you did in the end of this game. PUSH THE F*CKING PACE. It's not a coincidence those layups came when you did that.

    It unfortunately seems like it's never going to sink in for Harden that the dribble dribble dribble for 22 seconds is a stupid, stupid play.

    Harden was just awful.. I just cant believe how bad he was. Kawhi was on the bench and he still didn't want the game. He nutted up.

    Why wouldn't they. They gave the Rockets every chance to win. They stole this game.
