Holy shit. James Harden scored 37 points tonight, with 12 assists. Harden could turn out to be the new face of the Rockets franchise if he keeps this up. K-Mart wouldn't be able to do this in tonight's game. Lin had a decent game with 12 points and 8 assists.
Rockets starting PF is supposed to be Patrick Patterson, who is pretty good, but he's out due a minor injury.
As someone who actually watched the whole game, Harden will do that to a lot of teams. Dude is a legit star. It's not one game. He can drive, create his own shots, create shots for others, and obviously shoot. I seen him do it all tonight. It's not only because the Pistons are bad.
The Rockets would be god awful without Harden though. He IS their whole team.
Oh so you expect 30-5-10 games from him pretty frequently huh? Well alrighty then...
Those guys are flying under the radar again this year.
It seems as if everyone has forgotten about them in place of teams like Philly & Brooklyn, these guys will be a top 3 seed once again. And some call me crazy, but I think these guys could be a darkhorse to have the best record in the East.
Miami usually coasts the 2nd half of the season, Boston coasts pretty much the entire season, I could easily see Indiana if their play is good enough, getting the top honors.
Not here. I predicted them as the 2 seed. Between Paul George 3rd season/becoming more a focus in the offense and adding Green to an already good bench and I knew they were gonna be a problem.
