    I'm expecting less Adams, and more Bazley. OKC knows their only chance at taking games in this series is by running more, and causing disruption to our switching defense. I'm also expecting the Rockets to know that, and hopefully be prepared to get back on defense and not give up easy transition buckets.

    Princ Luc can't catch a break.
    He's broken more often than a Baja rally car

    I think the Prince was a waste of a roster spot. I believe injuries have taken a toll on his body. Like many here, I was hopeful when Moute re-joined our team, but perhaps that spot could have gone to somebody like Harty. I hope I'm wrong cause we will need more bodies to throw at Lebum when we play them.

    Harden can’t catch a break if he could get one playoff run where his whole squad could stay healthy he’d probably have a chip and a finals mvp already.

    I remember back in 2015, some people plotted to be CP3 up over the flopping, hope such foolish thinking has transgressed.

    With our current system Luc is a much better fit; switch type defender, and can shoot the 3 ball
    I loved iHart's hustle, but a 'healthy' Luc is a much better option

    Does he sniff stripper juice? I think that’s his secret sauce. Sniffing juice from the night before. I bet Harden is at the same level as Magic. 3-4K women a year.

    Jeff Green gonna explode for new career high 45 points if they decide to trap Harden. We’ve never had a point center. From the top of the key, that’s 1 step to the basket for green. You’ll end up having to rotate a man over every time... leaving Gordon/Bmac wide open or to Tuckwagoon in the corner. Sweet.

    about the same imo

    davis calls nothing for harden and ticky tack against him all game

    foster is more subtle and picks his spots, especially after getting called out a couple seasons ago

    That goes without saying, but when was the last time Luc was really healthy to play a NBA game? Like I said, I hope whatever is ailing him gets fixed because we might still need him. If Covington gets in foul trouble, we are going to be even smaller. Same can be said for Carroll, who has been healthy, but hasn't really gotten meaningful minutes from MDA.

    Is he actually a stopper, or did he happen to be standing in front of Harden while he was in his January shooting slump? Stay tuned

    The key is taking pressure off
    Whatever it is, he needs to keep doing it.
