    Thanks for putting it up!

    Would love to see both plays, the one before the foul/free-throw and the one after and see how it changed.

    Just like they didn't notice Perkins on Chandler in the POs.

    That eurostep is almost unfair, just a sick move. I'm so glad the Rockets have to best practitioner of it on our team.

    What a feel good finish :). 35 pts on 14 shots!

    refs don't call everything or they can't see everything.
    Remember last year against OKC Perkins grabbed Parsosns arm too and they didn't call it.

    The last 4 secs showcased how savvy this 24 yr old is. He initiated the contact to sell the foul. Then snaked in for a layup. This man is a genius.

    Yeah, it was pretty selfish of him to win the game. :(

    People grab and push Dwight constantly it's the only way to stop him, if they call all the fouls against Dwight we would never leave the Free Throw line.

    Refs let go of those kind of fouls all the time. I still remember the infamous Malone holding Drexler so Stockton could get off his 3 pointer to kick us out of the playoffs.

    Well it was a total team effort. Props to Jlin and the injured Bev for hijacking Mchale's marker and modifying the play, props to Harden for driving it in instead of settling for a 3 Melo-style and most of all props to Dwight Howard for doing the dirty work, first screening Harden's defender, holding Wall's arm while blocking his man, and finally being in place for the putback game winner in case Harden's layup missed. He was the guy who made that play happen IMHO, and I think Houston's gonna go places with this core.
