    Is this dated"April 28 2014?" Series is in the past. Harden was clutch, but the refs didn't help us at all. Game 1 specifically in the first half (which was conveniently the Rockets most important 2 qtrs. the entire series, again MO)
    We stop him by not having to play them, nor really worry about them, until at least late April.

    And edit meant to read "Harden was clutch, didn't hit some shots he normally hit, but...
    Also side note with edits also, Dwight was DOMINANT. If we had traded Asik for right pieces that series was a ROCKETS SWEEP.

    Instead McHale tried to play Asik who played hard, but didn't care all season, and pouted. The match ups were eerily similar to Boozer killing us bc of the bad "stretch D."

    You can lose to teams you're better than, especially in close random games, if there's any team we needed a solution for, it was the Clippers, we seemed to always fade hard against them.

    You do know that just because Dwight would be guarding LMA that it doesn't mean that he'd have to play a traditional PF role on the other side of the ball right? I mean, that wouldn't be breaking any rules. The fact that Dwight wouldn't fit well into a PF role on offense should have nothing at all to do with who he guards on defense.
