@  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
@  jorgeaam : (22 May 2015 - 03:39 AM) Why didn't Harden call a timeout instead of passing it to Howard on the 3 point line?
@  cointurtlemoose : (22 May 2015 - 03:38 AM) Heartbreaking last couple seconds...
@  jorgeaam : (22 May 2015 - 03:36 AM) WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED
@  jorgeaam : (22 May 2015 - 03:35 AM) Let's go rockets!

Wow what a game. Harden was just clutch in the 4th. Our backcourt scored 75 points 14 ast 14 rebound. They also scored our last 22points 13 by harden and 9 by Lin.

Honestly when they were down by 11 with about 5 to go I thought it was over. Great win, haven't felt this good in a long time.

Can I just say it feels great to hear the MVP chants back in Toyota Center again. What a phenomenal game. It went more or less the way I expected up until midway through that 4th quarter.

Since I have DirectTV and live in the boonies, all I got to do was see the game cast in ESPN.com. It sucks not being able to watch the games to the teams I enjoy.

Nice win tho.

Harden and Lin had decent games.

Ridiculous numbers by Harden. Who shoots 7/8 on threes to include a MADE half-court shot? Lin had a great game that reflects what happens when chemistry and effort meet. His confidence is through the roof if you see him play the last few games. I certainly was not expecting a win on this one. It seemed that OKC could read Harden's mind in the last couple meetings, but something about playing at home this time made the difference.

Harden and Lin took this one almost single-handedly on the offensive end. The rest of the Rox were a combined 15-51...ouch. Still, what a game...The shots were falling and we looked like we belong amongst that top tier of teams. (on a side note we did enjoy a sub-par Kevin Durant...not sure how much of that was defense and how much was him just being "off")....either way, I'll take it.

I loved the passing in tonight's game. Rox need to keep it up.

Apparently, I picked the wrong week to go on vacation. But it was beautiful to come back home and know that we beat OKC :D
