Correct, they went 5-25
And then sometimes they do...
never said that wasn't the case. they're probably the highest variance team in the postseason
Was making more of a comment on how they've looked like two completely different teams in this game.
Hell of a play by Ibaka there.
I didn't realize westbrook was ruled out for the whole playoffs. There goes any reason to watch.
grizz/clips winner to the finals?
Yea, but at least Kevin Martin and Thabo have stepped up to go 4-18 on mostly wide open looks.
No, the Spurs.
OMG nice 3 by Durant
Jesus Christ Durant with a sweet, sweet roll.
what the fucking fuck was that Harden?
moronic foul by garcia as well
good job good effort by Houston
eh, even with a healthy Westbrook this postseason was always going to be a Miami Heat victory cigar barring an injury to one of the big three.
Western Conference is going to be awesome to watch going forward. Eastern conference, meh. Knicks-Heat could be somewhat decent.
I'm a fan of Harden, but I lost a good deal of respect for him as THE man on a team. With the way he played at the end of the game, I think he's much better suited mentally to be the #2 guy on a team. Deferred way too often and not for the open shot, either. He looked like a guy who was scared to take the last shot, and I never thought of him that way before.
i hope everyone gives harden lebron levels of shit for passing up the last shot
Don't agree with that. They absolutely had a chance. They obviously weren't the favorites, but they probably had like a 20% chance to beat them. Whoever ends up there now has virtually no shot. The Spurs present some interesting matchup problems for them but I don't think it'll matter.
This is also his first year as being THE man. I'll give him more than a single playoff series before I write him off.
And of course Harden isn't a #1 guy. He was pitiful in the finals last year.
At times I thought his passing was a product of putting himself in no win situations. Too often he's driving down the lane forcing something, then he realizes that he over-committed and just panics.
That said, these games will help him learn. As said, it's his first playoff series as THE man against the #1 seed in the West. I think he will be fine.
As for Houston, they're pretty close to contention. I like Golden State a lot too in the future, the Western Conference is going to be tons of fun to watch in the near future.
hard to really judge harden playing on the youngest team in the league, surrounded by a bunch of guys who are best described as "well, sometimes this guy is pretty damn good, but a lot times he's a serious turd"
People forget how young Harden is. He was a 22 year old in his first finals ever. Not that the situation was the same, but Lebron did stink it up in his first finals as a 22 year old as well.
100% yes. Especially this rockets team. They have a little bit of talent but a lot of room to grow. Lets see how they mesh next year
