    If both teams are healthy it's a W for the Rockets.

    That's right.

    Harden will play tonight. But the defense has to stand up BIG to win this one.

    I almost wish he would sit and get healthy.

    I know how back pain can linger , I've lived with it for ~30 years .... from much the same thing that caused his - being reckless with his body in sports.

    Even though we lost and acknowledging it's only one game, Harden looked like a different caliber of player last night than Curry IMO.

    In all honesty, there is no player I'd rather have in the league right now. Harden is officially a rockstar caliber player. He was in a different league from both Curry and Thompson. All of those idiots claiming klay is a better player need to be put on notice. To me, Harden resoundingly laid his claim to being the best player of all back court players in the league last night; especially among young players. It's a real shame if Dwight's injuries are as bad as some say and he never recovers. I'd really hate to see Harden's career have to take that turn because of injuries to others. To me, he really is the front-running MVP candidate. I'd definitely take him over Westbrook as this point, though he's a great, great player in his own right.

    I think we would have won that game if even two out of the five players out injured were healthy. ANY TWO! Harden, Ariza, D-Mo and Bev just had to play way too many minutes last night. They were worn out by the end. If we had ANYBODY else who could have contributed meaningful minutes we at least stood a chance.

    Harden played as a MVP last night.

    Harden should really be MVP. He has put the team on his back this year.

    Props to Harden on another stellar performance tonight, I didn't get a chance to watch the game (working) but saw the highlights and what do ya know? A real MVP blossoming right before our eyes!

    Can't wait until the rest of the team gets healthy (if ever), so far Harden should be leading the MVP race considering what he's done with this team in spite of the injuries.

    A. Davis is a solid player, so is Curry. But Davis needs to prove he can win a few more games before he will be a leading candidate and Curry has a stacked team that hasn't really been challenged by anyone significant yet.
