The Rockets best lineup vs the Clippers have been when they play Josh Smith and Ariza together with Dwight and Harden.  For defensive reasons it works well.   Refs not blowing the whistles on Harden's flops today. 


"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Guys we're seeing Blake Griffin play full time point guard and the team is up after 3, I think he's closing on another triple double as well. I can't think of another big that can play PG full time in a playoff game

I can't enjoy this series one bit. Both teams need to lose. I don't want Stephen to have to deal with CP3. As good as he is, lots of weaknesses come up when you're up against him

The clippers are killing the rockets and Paul isn't playing...
If they grab the 2 games here it's over.

I hate how the refs nullified interior defense with the foul calling

Can't believe how lack luster the rockets look out there. Maybe rest is bad for teams, we saw the cavs look sluggish and same here with the rockets. 

 

Edit: Harden getting that Kobe treatment right now, doubled out by the three point line almost every play. Really showing with the lack of his offensive game right now, at least he is making the smart pass to open teammates.

The rockets X factor is 3-12 and it is showing here the impact Smith has on the game.

moving this over here 

 

 

Notice Harden's aggression has disappeared since he hasn't been getting the foul calls? I don't think he's taken a shot since the beginning of the 3rd Quarter.

Makes you ask the question, without the free throws, what is he? 

 

Harden better answer the bell soon. His team needs him right now. 

 

finally he's aggressive again.

Must say expected more from Harden on the eve of Curry being named MVP.  But when he stopped getting the usual foul calls early his aggression has vanished.

I don't think I've seen a game where I dislike nearly every player out there.

I like Ariza and that's probably it lol.

Without Harden's usual contribution this Rockets team is rather ordinary.

Short of Harden pulling a Tmac right now, looks like Houston will lose this.
