    It was not a foul, but at the very least, it should've been a no-call. He initiated the contact, but it was not a foul. Officials definitely took a look at some of Harden's moves to cut them out of the post-season. He also was missing shots in the first half, but we're not getting any help from the whistle in this series. We have absolutely no chance to beat this team as it stands.

    A player who needs the ball the be successful is being phased out of the Great NBA. Look at how GS and SA use their players and look at how we use ours.

    Doesn't matter since we sucked and would have been blown out regardless, but I got a chuckle out of this image being the Chron's header in an article about the offense sucking:

    Called for bullsht offensive fouls that were clearly hacks. This was agenda driven.

    Why does arguably the best team in the league need any ****ing help? It's ridiculous. They swallow their whistles for Golden State, and blow like crazy at the Rockets. Not calling countless moving screens is bad enough, but Harden not getting one freakin' free throw is beyond the pale. Blatant favoritism. Like I said, they don't need it!

    To bad the chronicle, as well as every other rockets media personnel, are a bunch of pansy asses. They should be making articles about the terrible officiating and especially calling out JB about the constant Brewer nut hugging

    I was bitchin all season about how the dude would rather get free throws than finish... and I got treated like the village idiot... Well here ya go - now he ain't getting the calls and can't finish with consistency....

    Dude is FOOL'S GOLD! Weak minded stat padding glory hound.... but all the Harden nuthuggers can keep quoting stats and make excuses for him...

    Regular season free throw rate with Rockets : .554

    Playoff free throw rate with Rockets: .524

    Regular season free throws per 100 possessions with Rockets: 13.0

    Playoff free throws per 100 possessions with Rockets : 12.2

    Regular season free throws per 36 with Rockets : 9.5

    Playoff free throws per 36 with Rockets : 9.0

    Yesterday was nothing more than an anomaly. He gets to the line during the regular season and only slightly less in the post season as a Houston Rocket.

    The reason your stats are skewed is because there are a number of games in which the rockets have lost in the post season where Harden is able to stat pad when the game is pretty much over. This is the reason you guys can't seem to understand the cold hard truth. Watch the freaking games.

    That depends on what team you are on....

    Also, no one is talking about those, they are talking about legit fouls where players are hacked, they often don't call those for Harden and the Rockets in the playoffs either.

    Look - we all know the antics don't get called in the playoffs - Harden does a lot of stuff to draw fouls - that is fine as long as he can still finish.

    It is the stuff he does to ONLY draw fouls that he needs to stop in the playoffs, because all that flailing will not work - he needs to try to make every shot.

    Stop tossing his hands up - just play to make....forget the show, play for the win.

    Oh I'm sure he will... I mean the guy is all about taking constructive criticism, listening to advice and making the necessary adjustments to his game...

    Who says this? Durant or you? There is no evidence that Ibaka or Westbrook are closer to Durant than Harden is and really vice versa.

    No one knows how Durant feels about Harden and the situation here and what he means to that situation. Again, for all we know Durant blames Dwight for this mess...as Dwight did drag down another player that Durant openly admires in Kobe Bryant.
