    the way CP3 looked tonight, Jason Terry could keep up with him.

    The hammy is no joke and he could be totally done if he injures it further... which is very likely playing on a bad hammy.

    You keep either Ariza or Brewer on him at all times. This makes switching on his pick and rolls more possible, and puts a longer better defender on him. You then hide Terry or Prigs on either Barnes or Reddick.

    Honestly, I think the Rockets are better equipped at guarding Paul than the Clips are at guarding Harden.

    Redick is one of 3 perimeter players currently in the playoffs that has a better TS% than Harden. The other 2 are Korver and Curry. If you add eliminated players, you also get Durant with his tiny sample size. If you add big men, Redick is still in the top 10.

    That's the guy you picked to "hide" a defender on?

    Trying to guard a perimeter lineup of JJ and Paul without Bev and with Harden


    Yeah, the Clippers are really the 'better' matchup - all those people were right!

    Ariza/Brewer 94 feet every single possession. And initially, I would actually let him go to his right and see how his hammy holds up pushing off of his left leg time and again. I honestly don't think he will last that long.

    I agree. It's time to play Nick the Quick!

    He's easier to guard than Parker. Tony does not only penetrate well on the court but on other players bedroom as well.

    Unfortunately, he is more like Nick the Brick.

    One can always improve shooting, but it is not happening right now.

    Ariza and Brewer have to cover him. Some players have been successful in similar scenarios: Jared Jeffries on Nash; ehem, Scottie, argh, puke Pippen on everyone.

    Hack Chris Paulie, play rough against him. I'd love to see our Rock guys give Paulie hard fouls like the Mavs did to us in their last stand. Hurt his other hammy, so he can stop the practice of flopping.
