    He puts up huge numbers every regular season and then flames out in the playoffs. Rinse and repeat. You dummies fall for it year after year. And to answer your question... yes, it sucks being 0-2.

    Harden has his flaws, but imagine writing this article after 25 year old Jae'Sean Tate, having never played an NBA minute in his life, played 63 minutes over 2 games, and your third leading scorer is David Nwaba and your fourth leading scorer is Sterling Brown.

    Lol

    This guy should be fired immediately for being such an idiot.

    Not blaming Harden, per se — Outside of a few stretches of his stubborn consecutive long distance threes (when his legs clearly weren’t there yet), but it was his turnovers at the end of regulation/OT that technically lost the game. Should have had better defense on that CJ three though, that was as big a factor, of course.

    I think Harden could have gotten Tucker an open shot if he bounced it. But he went high and Covington guessed right and jumped. Wasn’t an egregious turnover, but it was not a good mid-air decision. Esp with Wood open for three.

    Question: what is the name of the court position that is equivalent to the elbow but behind the three point line? Eg where Wood was on that play.

    LOL imagine poking your chest out because the warriors beat 2 winless teams lol. Thats fine tho we'll let you stephanie curry fans live a little bit and enjoy his little win streak lol. meanwhile Harden is off to one of the greatest starts to a season by any guard since 91 Jordan. And kept his team competitive despite playing with a new free agent signee and 6 castoffs lol. But its whatever. See you in the game-thread on thursday bruh

    I dunno but I really like Nwaba. If they can get him a shot. Holy crap. He is so active defensively. Love it.

    So had Harden been on time to camp, is there not a better chance of the team being 1-1 right now? Is that really controversial?

    Harden being on time to camp would’ve prevented Wall and Cousins from going to get haircuts? Or Mac from contracting Covid? Or EG being out as well due to contact tracing?

    exactly why would harden missing training camp cause eric gordon, wall and cousins to not play the first 2 games. They violated protocols, if they didnt we might be 2-0 or at the very least 1-1 right now

    SI was turned into a clickbait content mill by an investment firm a few years ago - we didn't know how good we had it when we were yelling at them for not putting the Rockets on the cover.

    Oh no doubt he’s not a star! He’s a pat bev/Tucker/luc type guy. You need those guys to win rings. He has good defensive instinct that can’t be taught.

    He's referring to Harden's conditioning in that Portland OT loss oh wise "CF Superstar".

    The Rox have been in a unique situation with all these guys out for covid protocol. Basically, the season doesn't really start until ....we actually have all our major players available and we see what that looks like in non-preseason games. That's the logical take...but this IS the internet so yea....

    There's more to winning and losing a game besides points and assist numbers. Defensive effort, rebounds, more mental focus, etc. All things that might come with better conditioning which might change the trajectory of the game buddy...
