    the warriors and jazz were both trying to do that those whole series. harden's teammates just weren't hitting their shots. Lopez did take out capela, which helped the bucks win, but the rockets just not making their shots was the reason the bucks won.

    Yes they do. Giannis with the Captain America shield throw to his face

    I'm tired of seeing defenders seemingly not attempting to block Hardens step back. Just one time I'd like to see someone with the tenacity and anticipation to actually get a hand up and block him without fouling.

    Bro that dude is talking crazy! Brogdon looked like he was gonna fall apart every time he was guarding harden. Now don’t get it twisted the effort was definitely there by the bucks but at the end of the day harden got his shots off every time. you kinda just gotta hip he misses.

    Their game plan was to force him right. Sometimes they overplayed him, but most of the time it worked.

    Teams can't stop him but can limit his production. And if he does that step-back-travel, be sure to stick a foot on that landing spot. Foul harder. 😁

    Jalen saying james harden can't shoot mid range is hilarious. Next game he'll prob get 40pts again.

    It was a 3 point game with like 2 minutes left and these Bucks fans going to act like Harden had a bad game. Them 9 TOs dont matter. Thats the only bad stat on Harden's line. Rockets lost a close game. Thats all. You guys in Milwaukee need to stop acting like yall know anything about basketball. It aint the 50s and 60s anymore. Maybe yalls opinion will matter once Giannis gets out the first round

  • MrDenLDC

    Giannis makes that pass to the corner at least once a game. Its awesome hearing the Bucks mentioned Nationally but its also equally as annoying that they have no idea what they're talking about.

      I guess you can wait to see him in Game 7 of the WCF. Let me know when Giannis gets out the 1st round

  • A D
    A D 9 months ago

    They had a chance down 3 when Harden missed from the outside... tipped the rebound to a teammate. There was about 1:57 left? Call a time out. Harden's legs were shot and you know he had a better than 80% chance of putting up a 3 pointer. Timeout, make that possession count BUT Harden missed and the long rebound turned into a 2 on 1 for the Bucks and that was the last time Houston got a sniff of the lead.

  • Qi Zhou
    Qi Zhou 9 months ago

    James Harden didn't get the call he usually gets in the 4th quarter and it makes this game relatively fair. James Harden can have 40 points every single games, but the rockets shouldn't be winning without Eric Gordon and cp3.

    • Greatness Phenom Incarnate

      Suprising how the Rockets Were winning all those games. All because of Capela and Harden carrying

  • indotsigalko
    indotsigalko 9 months ago +1

    cp and gordon werent there last night, but lets not forget harden got 9 turnovers,many of them came from forcing a pass in that exact scenario. Houston lost not because the bucks forced harden to become a passer but no one can hit the open shot, but its because the pass itself didnt find the open man. Yeah he got 42 pts and 11 assist, but still the def did work to some degree.

    • midrangejumpr
      midrangejumpr 9 months ago

      indotsigalko teammates missed open shots as well. It’s a make or miss league at the end of the day.

    • indotsigalko
      indotsigalko 9 months ago

      @Warrick James oh,it is more than dumb. Things that stats sheets and highlights doesn't show. 9 to's is bad enough, but how those happen is worse. There were multiple possesion (in a row) where the ball didn't even left harden,waste like 20 sec of the shot clock and end up with a turnover or a very bad shot..
      Things these new breeds of nba fans who only watch highlights will never understand.

    • Warrick James
      Warrick James 9 months ago

      Harden was playing dumb on a few of those passes... dude knew he would get triple teamed if he drove in and did it anyway trying to pass it out in heavy traffic

  • Green Machine
    Green Machine 9 months ago +12

    He didn’t have his two best players, was getting double teamed and more in the paint, and drops 42, when most of his shots are very contested threes. Don’t forget he puts his team in a winning situation against THE BEST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE RN... “oh but he sucks, what a flopper”

      Qi Zhou 9 months ago

      The refs didn't help James Harden enough last night. Those contested shots usually gives him free throws thus helping the rockets win games. The reason Rockets has been winning is not because James Harden scoring that many points, it's because the countless fouls he draw that affect other teams.

    No one has the recipe to stop Harden when his paying wages to these refs on a nightly basis 😂

  • Nintendo Prime
    Nintendo Prime 9 months ago +33

    I mean, he shot 43% which isn't bad when 16 of those shots were 3s. But 9 turnovers essentially negate 9 of the makes.
    Meanwhile, Giannis shot 50%, Brogdon 9/13, brown 9/12, Bledsoe 5/11. Nobody else but capela had double digit attempts and his entire team shot poorly. Yeah harden shot 43%, 38% from 3, but if he is the only way you score than absolutely the bucks sorted him out.
    Force him to his weak hand at all costs, make him be the only scorer, and the rockets are toast. He kissed 4 straight late 3s that weren't even close because the bucks wore him out.
    He doesn't get his teammates involved enough. Imho, he was exposed as a stat padding player.
    Another way to look at this. Minus his FTs, it took him 30 shots to get 30 points. Eh?

    • Marko Todorović
      Marko Todorović 9 months ago

      @Nintendo Prime You're crazy if you actually watch the Rockets and say that. He was passing too much against the Bucks, in my opinion. That was the cause of the turnovers. The Rockets have great teamchemistry and Harden is in no way bad for the team.

    • Nintendo Prime
      Nintendo Prime 9 months ago

      @midrangejumpr that's nice. It's real nice.
      I have watched about 25 rocket games this year. The sheer amount of hero ball he plays is off the charts.
      I am not denying his greatness. But it's mostly individual. Sure a guy has a big night here or there, but it's not consistent.

    • el chavo

      Stef Keh they were playing better before they went down

    • midrangejumpr
      midrangejumpr 9 months ago

      Nintendo Prime none of your arguments are valid or based in any facts. Statistically he creates the most points for his team (from points and assists). It’s tied for the best offense in the league. Every player that plays for Houston buys in to MDA system, built around Harden & CP. He’s been a top playmaker now for 5+ years, he has highlight passes. Capela just had his career high playing next to Harden. PJ had a career high 7 threes the other night and Gerald Green had 6. We get the best (open) looks in the game and because you’re ignorant you that the bullshit u said was gonna sound intuitive. Fuck outta here.

    We The North 9 months ago +4

    These media just look at Harden stat line of 40pts and say he went off. He shot 30 FG attempts and had 9 turnovers. Bucks made him uncomfortable. Rockets need CP3 & Gordon back asap.

    • We The North
      We The North 9 months ago

      @Jack McCoy That too. Harden is a volume scorer taking so many 3s, i am not impressed with what he does in getting 40 every game but i like his playmaking. Also, Kawhi does not guard Giannis. You mean Siakam, who gave Giannis a career high 30.

    • Jack McCoy
      Jack McCoy 9 months ago

      Lol bucks the best team in the east and we easily could’ve won this, we lost this more than the Bucks won it. We just made it thru our toughest stretch 7-2 w/o 2 key guys. They’ll be back soon.

    • A I
      A I 9 months ago +2

      he shot 43 percent. you acting like thats ass. ask your favorite player to shoot 43 on 30 shots. probably couldnt handle the pressure. it was a 3 point game with 2 minutes left. you act like Harden shit the joint. Bucks were scared

  • Michael Felix
    Michael Felix 9 months ago +5

    This is a different game with a healthy and in shape cp3 and eric gordon. Why do they always have to over analize everything? The defense on harden wasn’t anything special he ended up with 41 points but harden choked last two minutes when it mattered most as per usual.

      lol that shooting stats is bs, pls search up the definitions of True shooting percentage or Efgs, but also stats on their own have no value, he didnt shoot the best, doesn't mean he didnt create plays, spread the floor, generate, draw fouls, 11-30 doesn't mean its a bad game, it means he shot bad, they aren't necessarily the same thing
