    must be nice never having to create your own shots because you have two superstars on your team.

    Funny thing is those four dribbles came on one drive into traffic which resulted in a turnover.

    better 43 points on four dribbles than 43 points on 8 makes.

    That was some angels in the outfield shit.

    Watching it live the way the ball moved it just looked like the defender blocked it while standing out of bounds.

    Harden is the personification of everything that's annoying about how the NBA is officiated today.

    Nothing against him, he's taking advantage of the circumstances. But it's frustrating as hell to watch him fall down on 3s and get rewarded.

    Meanwhile you can all but get away with murder in the post*

    I joke, but I completely understand how maddening it must be to watch Harden as an opponent.

    I loved when Reggie made a huge argument about how Harden was fouled on his game winning 3 vs GS last week. It was the most unnatural motion you'll ever see but a "foul" and he gets that call more times than not.

    Wow, hard to believe you'd see something like that from a top-five player in the East and the future Rookie of the Year.

    Giannis just tried to whip the ball cross court and nailed harden right in the face. Harden went down like a ton of bricks. Hope to have video for your viewing pleasure shortly

    On the flip side in trying to stop the harden flail 3 pointer it seems like things which should be continuations are called "before the shot." Between the gather, the new definition of continuation, and the completely inconsistent "freedom of movement/off the ball" calls it's weird now. Used to be I could watch a play and no what the call should have been even it was missed. Now I just have to wait for a ref expert from the new york
    Maybe he can do his so very clever nose bleed celebration.

    so i'm casually watching the spurs-thunder game but i'm pretty sure the spurs actually haven't missed tonight thus far. they're up just 13 with 4 min left in the 2nd but have put 59 points so far.

    again, i don't actually think they've missed a shot.
