I know its been said before but I can not stand Harden. His offensive flops are on a ridiculous level. 70% of his game is just faking contact to get free throws.

Update: Hou is making their comeback 17-4 run all with Coward on the bench.


Lin and Harden have led this comeback for the most part. Lin with his skill.... Harden with his deception.

A dagger by Teague to end the double-ot game between the Cavs and the Hawks.

Biff with two early fouls.... :man10:

He just about the most overrated player I've ever seen. Well..... Then there's D Jordan....

Memphis had 20 total. I'm sure they're pleased with their 8-point loss under those circumstances.

For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Howard struggled today, but the four games before that he averaged well over 15 rebounds per game and over 20 points.

He'll have the off-night because he can't create offense for himself and gets in foul trouble easily, but for the most part he's starting to look more like Orlando Dwight over the last few weeks.

i can't even watch Houston games, harden annoys me so much. it's sad listening to announcers try to make excuses for all the bad calls he gets in his favor.

imo, the league needed a young star wing player, so they picked a guy who a) was good, b) people already knew (due to okc), c) had some iconic qualities (beard, fake cooler-than-cool demeanor), and d) played in a big market.

when they got howard, I knew it was going to get even worse, because now they can sell him as a franchise guy for a contender (as opposed to a high volume scorer on a bad team, a la monta ellis or kevin martin).

i think it's pretty shameful that the league's officials have let this go on for two-plus years, though. i feel like most fans and many players (and I'm sure, behind the scenes, front offices) have been complaining about the preferential treatment he gets. it's hard to take things seriously when this stuff goes on. i was hoping the league would stop after wade, but i guess they figured it worked once...

Watching Paul and Biff blow it in OT makes my week..... Paul misses two 12 footers and Biff 3 layups all in OT. Just doesn't get any better...

^Steve Kerr commented last night that the problem with Griffin's post game is that he does not have the wingspan to shoot over taller players that cover him. That is why he relies on his athleticism and honing a perimeter game. Really? I mean, really? Karl Malone didn't have this wingspan either not that I'm comparing him to The Mailman.

Aldridge's low post game with that accurate back to the basket turnaround J reminds me of what Elvin Hayes used to do. The former though has a higher release point and a better perimeter game on face-ups. He, Batum and Lillard make a nice trio. I'd like Portland more if Mike Rice wasn't announcing and having to think about his Bobby Knight wanna be son

That explains why Charles Barkley was so awful in the post.

Adrian Dantley..... 6'4" tweeter who couldn't jump That flat out dominated in the post at times.... Against SF and PF. Shot 54% career and drew fouls like Harden and Wade combined.

John Drew is another smallish forward that scored 20+ mostly from the post position....he also was a top offensive rebounder. He wasn't a high flyer and was about 6'6"

Kyrie Irving hurt his knee in the Cavs-Indiana game. Teammates had to help him off the floor.

Kyrie is back to the bench. Looks like he's okay to go.

Kyrie Irving told the reporters during the postgame interview that he heard a "pop" when he hurt his knee. For whatever the reason may be, he decided to play on it anyway. He's having an MRI tomorrow.

I'm really surprised the results of the MRI which came out today did not show a tear or anything. He got really lucky
