      i think James Harden's face bothers me. It's like he is using his beard to hide something. something about this man's face is irritating

        Yea im sure, u were just thinking "Nothing, keep shooting" . Harden always gets all sensetive when hes asked about poor shooting percentage, he gets real short about it, and u can tell hes bullshittin jus tryna get away from that issue. People wanna know what ur thinking to get urself out that funk and not buy into missin too much, and keep from missin more, how u stay focused or refocus. But he jus gets all butt hurt and wont answer foreal or take any responsibility for anything he does wrong. Or if hes off. Like dmon man, these questions aint for
        The reporters, like aspiring kids wanna know, fans. So you disrespectin us not jus the reporters....

        He was slowed down, if he takes that many shots to get to a 34 pt game, doesnt mean a good game jus cuz he got there when u can shoot as much as u want. Cp3, J.H, Westbrook and pg all have this same sensetive selfish mindset, they should all be on a team. When they have a good game they remember every detail tho, otherwise escuses, or ignoring people.

        Ima be damn shocked if they win this way, or even if hardens shooting percentate doesnt dip the further they get.

            Harden could average 25+ points without making the single field goal.

                      This is why Harden is loved and is barely dragged by the media. He answers questions and owns up to his shortcomings to bring his team together. Russell Westbrick on the other hand says “next question” while worrying about his next triple double that gets his team nowhere 🤦🏽‍♂️.

                            I love walking next to disgusting black welfare mothers with 100 kids in Walmart and loudly saying, "Where's the father?" The U.S. is turning into Nigeria and losing all of it's global power. China and Russia are loving it. Are black women competing with each other to see who can have the most nasty ass kids they can't afford? Absolutely disgusting.hdh

                                        That's why I love James Harden "I missed a couple" lol and Chris Paul "Gobert three a few back too" then James "Yeah he threw back a couple" love the mentality. Hard playoffs to watch as I have ties to Houston and Utah so hard to see this matchup this early either way a team I love gets eliminated 😢 double gut punch for me

                                          It was an ugly grinded out kind of game, but you have to win those as well in the playoffs, and the Rockets did.

                                            we forget this but they basically won 2 last year vs the warriors this way.....the fact no one else got even 20 and capela wasn't really a huge factor and gordon was held in check and tucker was just good not great and the bench was good not great yet the rockets still won on the road vs a good 50 win team means something...it means they dont panic..harden was 0-15....sure had 8 points going into the 4th on fts but like when your best played has 8 points hasn't hit a shot and the games close vs a good team on the road when their desperate and your not it means your pretty talented cause the rockets for the most part were on cruise control doing their normal thing expecting to be up 15+ with harden balling like usual so the fact he wasn't and they didnt fold means a lot..i mean he had 14 in the 4th..way to wake up...3-4 basically to end the game as his last miss was a late clock shot they got the rebound on anyways up late so I dont count that force...that step back from the logo was clutch as fuck ...

                                          when the defense intensity goes up-----harden always seems to have a "poor night." at what point do you give credit to the defense? james harden doesn't like it when you play him physical. when you do----all of a sudden "his shot is off". all harden wants to do is look pretty the whole game. when he's not able to do any of that he starts pushing off and throwing elbows (at the defender)----and it NEVER gets called. he did it in this game, but no game illustrates this better than that rocket-bucks (in milwaukee) a few weeks ago. hop off the bandwagon for 2 seconds and watch that game and tell me if i'm lying.

                                            Basement Network - nope...not at all. it doesn't matter where the points come from. but, in harden's case it kinda does. how does a player lead the league in FT attempts when 70-80 percent of his shots are 3s (the shot least likely to draw a foul)? i'm not going to say the refs favor him, but the refs kinda favor him. lol. when i said aspects of his offensive game i meant in terms of him scoring. i put post ups, mid range and moving without the ball in parenthesis----that wasn't clear?

                                            14 points is 14 points...i agree. but the game was tight all the way through----the jazz really couldn't/didn't pull away from the rockets. so no, i didn't ignore that part, it's just that him scoring those 14 points is not as serious/dramatic as you're making it out to be.

                                            i also agree----the objective is to beat the team in front of you. but, i think it's obvious at this point that the rockets/warriors will meet in the 2nd round? harden did his part in this game agains the jazz, but him going 3-20 is not the part you want him to play against warriors. trust me on that one.

                                            nope...not determined to hate on harden at all. like i always say---if there is truth and there is proof, it can't be hate. not sure why people don't like to hear a different opinion on james harden. if you're on the bandwagon stuck in traffic---don't get mad at me. i just got a different take on him/his game....that's all.

                                            @Chin Chukwu Does it matter if points come from the FT line, the three point line or on dunks? Or are you one of those dimwits who think free throw points have less value?
                                            Didn't he rack up 10 assists setting up his teammates to score? Or is that not an "aspect" of the offensive game?
                                            Did he not put up 14 points in the fourth quarter to help his team come from behind and secure a win on the road in a hostile arena? Or are you determined to ignore that part because it blows up your narrative?

                                            I don't worry about the Warriors...or any other team for that matter...until they are the opponent. The objective right now is to get past the Jazz.
                                            The win last night was crucial to that objective and Harden did his part to make that happen.

                                            I'm not sure why you're so salty but clearly you're determined to hate on Harden no matter the context or what the facts reflect.
                                            I'll leave you to it.

                                            Basement Network - if you read my comment you would notice that it was more general and wasn't specifically about this game. since you want to bring up his numbers. didn't 14 of his 22 points come from the FT line? wasn't he 0-15 (including 3 point range) at one point?.....and kept shooting because there aren't any other aspects to his offensive game (post ups, mid range, moving without the ball)? 15% from 2-pt/3-pt range. you're impressed by this? it's ok against the jazz-----but do you think that's going to work against the warriors in the next round? Lol.

Saying things that aren't tru about me , because i said something that 90% of the country would agree with? Really? So ur a rockets fan ! Great! Dosent mean u need to lie , or insult people , that doesn't make u a better fan . Did the dodgers get rid of machado? YES ! does draymond stink up the court ! YES . Did dale sr go out from getting payback for what he did to so many orher drivers . If basketball turns hockey the fan base will shrink , and lebron would win every single game. Its not soft to do it right , its actually much tougher , stongest people in the world are not angry cheapshots , Curry changed the game more than anyone in a long time . Rockets remind me of the packers offensive line : if you can't block the defense use ur forearm to choke from behind and give rodgers 7 seconds to throw a 15yd pass , embarrassing very embarrassing, and refs pretending to not see it , all said if rockets were a larger market team they would have made the finals last year

This league has become so soft because of people thinking like you. And if you think what ever Harden did is considered "cheap shot fits" and deserves to be ejected is laughable. Harden barely shows much emotion. These guys are playing for a championship. These aren't 6 year olds playing for a participation trophy! And you think your pick of an mvp Giannis doesn't trash talk and get in people's face?

I wouldn't say I'm the biggest fan of James Harden but this is a really good game from both teams. James didn't do anything stupid and kept his composure and so is Donovan Mitchell. High intensity games means that it is much harder to make a basket. It's a treat to the fans. As a casual fan who just wants good basketball game, you cannot ask for more. Prop to both teams.
