    To bad harden doesn’t do that stirring the pot shit anything but he’s definitely cooking up something hot and loaded and that’s them rocket balls

    @9:02-9:04 minutes that was an out of bound and a foul that the ref should of called on Rockets.
    I’ll tell you now. If Lakers are balling like this with Lbj. When he returns, Teams that are a one man band like James Harden with Rockets are gonna get trouble. Lakers had this game until the refs started making plays.

    everyone talks about KCP shot. but no one talks about the defense by harden. he was playing elite post defense and getting deflections and steals. now he has no holes in his game give him mvp

    Everyone says that KCP ruined the game but let’s not forget that kuzma dropped that inbound pass.
