@  thejohnnygold : (19 April 2018 - 02:20 PM) This scoop shot right here!
@  thejohnnygold : (19 April 2018 - 03:42 AM) That might be the best scoop shot I've ever seen
@  DenverRocket : (16 April 2018 - 04:08 AM) At least CP3 can only get better! Also, if our 3pt shooting comes back, it won't be close.
@  thejohnnygold : (16 April 2018 - 03:41 AM) Phew!
@  thejohnnygold : (16 April 2018 - 01:57 AM) When did Capela get that Euro-Step?
@  Mario Peña : (08 April 2018 - 05:40 PM) I don’t mind the loss to the Thunder last night. This Rockets team needs to be anticipating teams going for the jugular and Harden and co. need to fight through playoff levels of physical play.
@  rocketrick : (24 March 2018 - 01:43 PM) Walk for a Rocket Championship seems so empty while teenagers are truly and courageously Walking for Their Lives Today.
@  DenverRocket : (23 March 2018 - 05:06 PM) Brandan Wright released apparently
@  thejohnnygold : (22 March 2018 - 02:21 PM) Harden looks unstoppable right now. Really enjoying the way he has matured.
@  slick shoes : (21 March 2018 - 04:05 PM) Great win last night against the Blazers. Was good to see us take a punch in the mouth and stand our ground. A nice long homestand with 3/5 of the teams in tank mode should provide some nice rest for our starting group. Hopefully Ariza and Anderson can find their groove in the mean time as well.
@  slick shoes : (19 March 2018 - 07:12 PM) was hoping we'd have a large enough lead going in to the 4th last night that CP and James would get to rest the last 12 but we took our foot off the gas....
@  thejohnnygold : (18 March 2018 - 12:21 PM) I'm sure they have some plans for rest down the stretch...hopefully.
@  Mario Peña : (17 March 2018 - 08:09 PM) Durant out for two weeks perhaps too, hope James takes the opportunity to rest some himself.
@  slick shoes : (14 March 2018 - 06:05 PM) Curry out for multiple games plus Thompson out for two weeks makes that two game lead just a little more comfortable.
@  Mario Peña : (11 March 2018 - 06:12 PM) That loss hopefully contained lessons for this Rockets team. Teams will take away the three as much as they can in the later rounds of the playoffs.
@  rocketrick : (08 March 2018 - 05:54 PM) Oh Yeah, The winning streak up to 17 now and with a very tough road game on Friday against....
@  rocketrick : (08 March 2018 - 05:53 PM) Addition of Joe Johnson after the Trade Deadline and how that could impact our Team in the Playoffs
@  rocketrick : (08 March 2018 - 05:47 PM) I'm here to read and comment not to write articles
@  rocketrick : (08 March 2018 - 05:46 PM) New ownership
@  rocketrick : (08 March 2018 - 05:46 PM) Our bench

Really good analysis of Hardens hyper efficient start to the season: https://fivethirtyei...=espn:frontpage

I think we got a positive answer to the question in the title last night...

Part of the reason he put up that line though was that he had to because CP3, EG and Ariza were missing.

 

It was pretty awesome to watch! Delighted that he finally took the scoring record and particularly the way in which he did it. The last time he came close, they were trying to manufacture the last few required points and he couldn't hit a barn door, this time he had to do it to win the game.

 

I hope he finally gets the MVP, though I'm fully expecting LBJ to drag the Cavs back into serious contention and win it the same way Westbrook did last year ;-)

Well at least McMahon is pushing the Harden narrative :-)

I'm just happy about the defense.  There really hasn't ever been much question about his offensive skills; although, he has improved his passing beyond what I thought he could do.  The defense is what will take us to the next level.

See I always thought his passing was ahead of his teammates abilities. Remember the teams with Lin, Dwight and/orParsons? Guys like that couldn’t handle James’ passes I thought. Of course, and I was wrong, McHale did little to fine tune Harden’s skills and that offense.

It probably was.  I was always more focused on the locations guys were getting the ball.  He wasn't hitting them "in the numbers" as much as I felt he should.  He's much better now.

 

I think my favorite thing right now is the fact that we have lost only one game when fully healthy this year--which includes lots of quality wins.

 

I think we can beat any team in a series.  If we can keep that blue collar, lunch pail, defense-first attitude and not try to be something we're not we've got a real chance.  What more can you ask for?
