      Actually what they're doing is working. Let Harden get doubled and free up a lane for Russ. Once Gordon comes back, teams will stop running the double on him though.

      He stinks only from the 3pt line, he's been up and down but can still take over a game at any given moment, and he's been playing good lately, also sidenote the season still early, he keeps this up he'll be in the MVP conversation within no time

    It was the same play every time lol. Capela screen to harden, harden pass to westbrook and he zooms it to the basket. I like it.

      @Thotty DaGod Thankfully Harden doesn't force it and instead passes it to Russ so he can take advantage of the hole.

      The Harden double teams isnt working..but teams keep trying it.
      The Rockets have other capable scorers and a whole 'nother elite playmaker on the team.
