    I was very disappointed in our fourth quarter basketball tonight despite the win. Although the officiating seemed to be against the Rockets in the fourth quarter, we should have weathered their push better.

    1. We didn't feed Gordon, who has been the hot hand lately. (Negated by Ryan Anderson's cold shooting?)
    2. Harden went back to iso ball the last few possessions and got stripped or blocked (They have Westbrook, Oladipo, and Roberson...pure athletes. Why would float it instead of going off glass?)

    James was visibly frustrated on a few plays when his teammates weren't in the right place (the three point line, where else?) and this perhaps caused him to revert to iso plays.

    This should be in the sticky thread that is specifically related to tonight's game. The main GARM space is reserved for D-Mo threads only please.

    In OP's defense sometimes you want to talk about the game without all your comments getting buried by ftwrocketsftw calling everyone fat, DD fighting to the death to defend all the white players and penispopper borderline sexual harassing nba players. But I prefer it that way so I tend to stick to the game threads

    yeah, this game has left a lot of sour taste in my mouth too. I don't know what people are celebrating about; Harden and Rockets as a team played one of the worst basketball I've seen in years, especially in the 4Q. Just ugly, ugly game man.
