    I didn't see anything but he was a big part of the comeback against the Clips. Isn't playing well this game but gotta be better than Tjones.

    no, he's a backup forced to play starter in the playoffs. you expect him to go back to his old days? open your eyes

    Exactly. Josh Smith is replaceable. He is one of the most inconsistent players in the NBA, which is why he was cut by Detroit.

    With Harden struggling so much we needed him to attempt his playmaking even if it was likely to fail.

    ended up playing him major minutes in the playoffs what did anyone expect

    For him to stop shooting at some point.

    This pretty much. I would rather him jack up threes with a chance for us to rebound than to turn the ball over, over and over.

    I guess we don't have to worry about him signing back us this off-season after sitting him for the entire 4th quarter.

    he has earned the right to shoot, there's no one else out there. He was exceeded all expectations this playoffs and saved our asses man times

    Josh Smith wasn't why we lost. It was Harden's point shaving. Josh Smith is THE reason we're playing in WCF. He is not easily replaceable

    That's how I felt. I feel like he deserves a chance to get us to another game. Why didn't he get that chance? They had TJones out there for a while in the 4th.

    No that was just part of McHale's great coaching

    McHale figured out that if he doesn't have it, he doesn't have it.

    But still, it would have been better for him to be playing in the 4th quarter than Harden.
