Harden always plays big against the Spurs. He averaged 30/9/12 on 47% shooting in 4 games vs them this season

Heh, I was wondering if that was the last time they met.

Can't believe I've gotta watch so much Houston

Such a boring, fraud of a team.

I don't think anybody is going to put the clamps down on Harden necessarily, he will get his, but I would like to see the Spurs neutralize Nene, Gordon, Williams, and Beverly. If they can make them non-factors or play average I think it will go a long way. Gonna need a big series from the Spurs back court ... and i think it's definitely possible

Anyone who says Spurs will kill the Rockets are dumb. Every game they played against them was close and a fast paced team like the Rockets WILL give San Antonio trouble.

Grizzlies lost because they don't have players that can consistently knock down a wide open jumper in the backcourt. Grizzlies backcourt been garbage outside of Mike Conley ever since Jason Williams, Damon Stoudamire, and Bonzi Wells left.

Sometimes you don't have to even guard Harden to stop him. Sometimes he goes into a shooting slump and is a very streaky shooter in the play-offs even when he's left wide open. I remember that time when Harden shot his way into a couple of Golden State play-off losses and the Rockets had to bench him. I guess it was really a mental thing more than anything else.

We're definitely better off for playing that physical Memphis series tbh

I respect Memphis so much more than the heartless Rockets

Rockets need to get as many easy shots as they can, especially during critical situations when 3 point shots aren't falling down.
