  • JSosa13 says 3 YEARs ago I think the whole team looks exhausted. Jeremy Lin, Asik and Harden have never played big minutes before everyone else is either a rookie or second year guy. Hopefully this homestand will help them get out of this funk, and more importantly give these guys a chance to rest a little more...

    New post: Phoenix Suns 107, Houston Rockets 105: Harden Can't Do It All


    Harden didn't do it all. He had 8 turnovers which really hurt us. Many of which lead to fast breaks the other way. If there is one area in which harden needs to improve its turnovers. Sometimes he throws the most ridiculous passes that have no chance of getting to a rockets player. This happened many times last night.

  • Cooper says 3 YEARs ago Disapointing loss to say the least
  • Jason says 3 YEARs ago

    Have no fear, The Beard is here.


    Harden needs to score 30+ tonight for us to win

    I think I jinxed them :unsure:

    .

    Lol. The thing that we have to remember is how young and inexperienced we are. Any road game has the potential to be challenging for use because of this, no matter what team it is.

    I think I jinxedus :unsure:

  • Jason says 3 YEARs ago Wow, this is awful
  • Jason says 3 YEARs ago Ugly game so far
  • Steven says 3 YEARs ago Especially considering the Jazz's collapse.
  • Mason Khamvilay says 3 YEARs ago

    We play the Suns 4 times, and a bunch of other horrible teams. I think it's safe to say we're making the playoffs lol

  • Jeby says 3 YEARs ago It won't matter if Harden is fresh as a daisy for the playoffs if the Rockets aren't in them. He has to play.
  • Mason Khamvilay says 3 YEARs ago

    If Harden was closer to 30 I'd say let him sit, but he's 23. Hopefully we can blow PHX out and Harden only has to play like 26 minutes.

  • phaketrash says 3 YEARs ago

    Rather he play limited minutes after we blowout PHX early or something. LAL and UTAH are right on our heels, and it really is anyone's game right now. We have to pull out like 7-3 or (better) 8-2 out of the games from ORL down to Cleveland I think. We're 3-1 right now, so on track. Starting after the Cavs game, we have SA, Pacers, MEM, and LAC. o.O Tough stretch.

  • Richards says 3 YEARs ago

    Play like clippers and keep starters around low 30 min unless situation required. I knew I knew Clippers has deep bench. We don't have true backups.

  • thenit says 3 YEARs ago

    Even without Harden I think we can easily split the games. I rather have him rest 2 games and be 100% than go 80% the rest of the way. It seems like he has a nagging knee and ankle injuries. I want him to rest, rather than have him make it worse or not be 100% for playoffss

  • Jason says 3 YEARs ago

    What's wrong with limited minutes? Maybe play the first and fourth quarters?


    Or just let him play. He's 23 yrs old. He will be fine.

  • Jason says 3 YEARs ago

    True, but who are we playing, I think we could beat Phoenix without Harden the way Parsons is playing. So sit out those 2 games until next Friday against Minnesota. You don't think we could beat Phoenix 2 times in a row without Harden?


    Nope

  • Cooper says 3 YEARs ago If we sit harden for a week we lose 2-3games we can't afford to lose
  • timetodienow1234567 says 3 YEARs ago

    So you want him exhausted and looking like last night come playoff time?

  • Jason says 3 YEARs ago

    Is it just me or do other people want Harden to sit for 1 week or 2 weeks. I think we'll survive a few games without Harden and still squeak into the playoffs. However, we won't go ANYWHERE unless Harden is 100% healthy, and even then, it's unlikely. We need Harden well rested and healthy come playoff time. I think we can handle PHX without Harden and in my opinion Harden should sit.


    In a word, No
