These are two evenly matched teams, the rockets got some bad bounces. Its not that serious.
Victory =/= Virtue.
Portland won, it doesn't mean they are better in any significant way.
it would really be funny if a white warriors fan brings one of his black friends to the next warriors game, would love to see a picture of that happening
every aspect of hardens game has been whack this whole series
rockets would be up 3-1 if you replace harden with derosen
derosen has been better on offense and defense, he plays to score not to flop and draw fouls. his team is winning partly because of his play, while the rockets won game 3 despite hardens poor defense and ballhogging
in a very close series like this one its the difference from being 3-1 and 1-3
harden is houstons biggest problem on offense AND defense, it is literally impossible for a player of his skill level to hurt a team more than he did these past 4 games
you can put nick young in james hardens place and the series would probably be 2-2
