    In the playoffs

    It was a problem against Porland two seasons ago. It's 40℅ in his time in Houston.

    I love the guy. I always defend him against the he isn't serious enough criticism. But this is is an issue

    He has got to stop having those under 30℅ games

    Remember, he gives you 1 good game per series.

    He is at 39℅ against SA after Wednesday. That's bad regardless

    I know it maybe a rehash but I didn't see any threads on it specifically

    We're talking season five now

    He needs to shoot the mid-range game. This is why Moreyball sucks, Spurs are practically daring us to shoot wide open midrange twos.

    Can we make one of these for HOME RYNO, PLAYOFF LOU and PLAYOFF GORDON
    What the hell did they give us tonite?

    For all the bullshit we heep on Harden
    If Ryno and Lou could have hit 5 Threes between them we win this f*cking game
    Hell 4 Threes and a 2

    He shot 50% today with 42 points, he's not the problem, today.

    To me Spur has been winning the last 2 games by getting off to great starts to their offence, meaning our defence needs to step up from tip-off and not make them get into their rhythm. Once they get their shots their confidence level is up and they tend to play harder and more disciplined in their defence too.

    The beautiful thing about the spurs is one guy can shoot 30% and the next guy steps up. It doesn't matter

    it's really boring to watch, but it wins games

    also, it's really hard to game plan against especially when they make adjustments

    This thread wasn't meant to lay all responsibility at his feet

    But more importantly this is a career issue

    I just want want him to improve because it would be a shame if his overall brilliance isn't recognized because of it


    He carries this franchise in the playoffs but he still needs to shoot betteri n the playoffs

    op is right. before this game he was under 40fg% and 27% from three. now he's 40fg% and still 27% from three. this team is shooting like **** all playoffs long.

    btw harden's shot has always been inconsistent. he never was a good shooter. though i think its cuz he does too much for his team.

    Maybe he needs his teammates to shoot better?
