@  SadLakerFan : (25 May 2015 - 03:43 AM) Lebron James is playing with a fire. Unreal performance tonight when his threes aren't falling.
@  Mario Peña : (24 May 2015 - 03:55 PM) Don't get me wrong, I hope they can come back and be competitive but the lack of talent/production from the 1 and 4 in this series really makes it hard on Harden/Howard.
@  Mario Peña : (24 May 2015 - 03:53 PM) 36% shooting from Smith/Jones tandem and sub 30% from Terry/Prigioni who also can't defend in this matchup is a recipe for a sweep.
@  Mario Peña : (24 May 2015 - 02:16 PM) I actually went out last night for game three, Griff's in Montrose. By the second half everybody in that bar was so down, it was a rough night.
@  majik19 : (24 May 2015 - 04:28 AM) i think tonight's loss proved one thing - we need a transcendent performance from Harden to hang with the Warriors. We didn't have that tonight.
@  skip 2 my lou : (24 May 2015 - 02:46 AM) another illegal screen call, are they finally gonna call them?
@  majik19 : (24 May 2015 - 02:38 AM) man Draymond Green just gets away with everything. so weird
@  majik19 : (24 May 2015 - 02:12 AM) everything that can go wrong is going wrong... harden can't buy a bucket... 3s aren't going in... Curry is getting offensive rebounds...
@  jorgeaam : (24 May 2015 - 02:09 AM) So... did anyone see the Astros game last night?
@  JY86er : (23 May 2015 - 08:51 AM) It was very exciting and I'm sorry we lost, but its time to play in the white jerseys now.
@  Cooper : (23 May 2015 - 02:39 AM) If that was anyone but Dwight trailing we got an open three, I think harden just instinctively passed before he realized who it was then didn't have enough time left to get a fadeaway from the elbow that he likes and panicked a little. I'd take harden to make a play/get a decent shot up in that situation 9/10 times. It just didn't work out
@  Mario Peña : (23 May 2015 - 12:30 AM) I agree with you SadLakerFan. I don't believe a timeout would have been a good idea. Everything points to the decision that was made being the right one and just because the outcome was a failure doesn't mean it wasn't the best scenario.
@  SadLakerFan : (22 May 2015 - 04:01 PM) Gotta disagree. You would be taking the ball out of your best (by far) player's hands when the defense is on its heels. A timeout would allow the best defense in the NBA to prepare for the inbounds play - you might never even get it to Harden. As for Harden, I watched it again a few times - he's got to take that shot at 4.0 seconds. He'll learn. I see this as his coming out game. The whole nation knows how good he is now.
@  txtdo1411 : (22 May 2015 - 02:45 PM) Agreed Majik. It's hindsight and everything happened so quick, but that would have been huge. I also feel Harden takes that first stepback if Barnes didn't do that fly by from behind. Just an unfortunate ending to a great game. We'll get them back in Houston.
@  majik19 : (22 May 2015 - 02:21 PM) I feel like McHale or someone should have taken a timeout as soon as Harden got double-teamed. Then we could've drawn something up for him.
@  SadLakerFan : (22 May 2015 - 06:37 AM) McHale made the right call - no time out against the best 1/2 court defense in the NBA. In retrospect, you wish Harden had taken the step back.
@  Mario Peña : (22 May 2015 - 04:53 AM) The 5 always trails and always gets the ball as he crosses half court, I believe it was kind of a habit pass. Harden should have just decisively gone right initially and Ariza probably would have had an open corner three. Harden and co. are still learning.
@  cointurtlemoose : (22 May 2015 - 03:54 AM) Maybe it didn't register in the split-second decision that it was Howard trailing. If it's anyone other than Howard, one of Curry/Thompson peels off to cover the trailer, and Harden gets his one on one back
@  JY86er : (22 May 2015 - 03:41 AM) Oh well, Guys. We got 'em right where we want 'em now.
@  jorgeaam : (22 May 2015 - 03:40 AM) Oh boy, well, at least I like our chances to take both home games the way the Warriors are playing

It's really fun watching Asik develop almost minute-by-minute. The late Pete Newell would have really enjoyed working with him.

One of the biggest bargains in basketball.

There's a nice video breakdown here of the final minute and a half of the game.

Overall I thought this was the best game we've played this year by quite some distance. You have to get almost everything right to beat the Heat, and for 47 minutes we did that. Just a shame that some inexperience told at the end and we were unable to close it out.

I only got to see the fourth quarter but the play that upset me the most was not getting the rebound after Wade missed both free throws. It would be easy to blame Patterson for not getting that rebound, but I blame Sampson. On the biggest rebound of the game to get, Sampson did not have Asik in the game until after Bosh grabbed the offensive rebound and was fouled. In my opinion he should have had Asik, Patterson and Jones in the game to ensure we got that rebound, but he still had his small lineup that featured Patterson as our center. That was the biggest play of the game that ultimately led to Harden dribbling down the clock and jacking up a three.
