    ​I don't hate the guy, he's the most physically gifted NBA player ever and one of the best passers I've ever seen. I don't find his game very attractive, he steamrolls people and then complains when someone actually puts up some resistance.

    If they actually called offensive fouls like they're supposed to, you know lowering a shoulder into a guys chest, forearm pushoffs, Lebron would foul out every game.

    22 more free throws taken and still down 12 and for the "jump shooting team" crowd, points in the paint is 36 GS to 38 CLE.

    When you always have the ball I would hope you'd accrue some volume stats. He has a historic usage rate in the finals so of course he's involved in most of their points and when you shoot 35 times a game I'd hope you average 40 points.

    So throwing an elbow at someone's head isn't excessive, just unnecessary according to the NBA when it's Howard throwing the elbow but not Horford. He also didn't think the elbow was in retaliation to anything which apparently makes it worse than a random elbow for no reason.

    It's stuff like this that makes the nba look like a joke. Harden flops a half dozen times a game easy but they fine Curry for a play where there wasn't even a foul called. Just what the hell is the criteria for a fine when I've seen far worse flops in every single game of the playoffs.

    I don't know if I can take watching 48 minutes of Harden running into people then having convulsions. He has the ugliest game in the NBA and is an eyesore from my perspective. The sooner this series is over the better.

    I don't understand how the NBA can justify a 22-3 free throw advantage, when the points in the paint are basically even. I can't watch games when officiating is so one sided.

    Houston with an epic comeback while Harden rides the pine the entire 4th quarter. How often does a team blow the doors off a playoff game with their "best" player on the bench?

    Could you possibly add a few more assumptions, opinions and complete conjecture in to your post? I think almost saw a fact or two in that post so you might want to fix it. They can and have overcome cold shooting nights with lockdown defense. In fact they excel at lower scoring games considering they haven't lost this year when they've given up under 100 points. Every team that's ever had a double digit point differential has made it to the finals, and the only team that didn't win lost to another team with a double digit point differential. Your reaching badly because the numbers don't support your point of view at all no matter what stats you use.

    Clifford talked on WFNZ this morning and said not only is Jeff Taylor ahead of PJ in the rotation, but Troy Daniels as well. He has a long way to go to be a core player.
