Yet another historic game for James Harden

All that really matters is Westbrook and Harden will both finish with 0 rings. 


Harden is the better scorer, Westbrook is the better overall player.

Half right on both counts. Actually Westbrook was the better scorer before this season, only because he is a high-volume shooter like your idol Kobe was. It will be interesting to see which All-Star captain chooses Russ, assuming he even makes the team this year. Of course all the fans blinded by his numbers last season (like yourself) will vote for him, but like every year there will always be so many snubs in the overloaded Western conference while every half-decent player in the east will make it.

See how quick you are to respond when Westbrook becomes tbe only player to record back to back seasons averaging a triple double.

Do you really think he will? Westbrook is barely averaging 10 assists per game and only 9.4 rebounds per game. Ain't gonna happen.


And Harden accounted for 86 of his team's 114 points tonight, which would be a record for ordinary players, but it's only the 3rd most ever for him.

Do ordinary players average a triple double for a season?

You are so infatuated with triple-doubles, aren't you? You act like they're the most important accomplishment in basketball.


The other guy who averaged a triple-double finished 3rd in the MVP voting and you act like Westbrook is even better than Jordan.....:rolleyes:

If they take 4th or 3rd in the West and he does it again, he might threaten Hardens MVP.

3rd or 4th in the West? OKC will be lucky just to make the playoffs without Roberson or any semblance of a bench.

But trust me, Im hoping more than you OKC doesn't make it. 

I'm sure you do because I want OKC to make the playoffs so the Rockets can sweep them in the first round.


If they do make it they will be one of the lower seeds (maybe 8th) barely beating out the Pelicans and possibly Portland or even the Clippers.

So they'll be 8th but also barely beating out two teams that are currently playoff teams? Makes sense....

If OKC makes the playoffs, they could certainly back in. They should finish ahead of New Orleans, but there's no guarantee of that happening.


The Clippers aren't a current playoff team, so if OKC finishes ahead of them and the Pelicans then they could be the 8th seed. Makes perfect sense.

And then knocks yall out of the 2nd round come playoff time. I bet you'll be ghost for two+ weeks.

After Westbrooks  20, 20, and 9 performance last night, he is now averaging 10.3 assists


And with his 9, 9, and 7 night tonight at halftime, he will surely improve all of those numbers. Come March he will be averaging a triple double. 


No doubt.

Even if OKC makes the playoffs they probably won't last until the 2nd round to play Houston, they would far more likely meet in round 1.


As far as Westbrick averaging a triple-double? If he's not too busy whining about Zaza trying to break his leg he still has a long way to go.


He could quite possibly average 9 assists per game the rest of the season, but it's highly unlikely he'll average 11.4 RPG over the next 21 games.


But if he wants to be averaging a triple-double by the beginning of March, he will need to get 49 rebounds in his next two games. No chance.

James Harden has become the fastest player in NBA history to reach:

  1. 15,000 points
  2. 3500 assists
  3. 3000 rebounds
  4. 1000 steals
  5. 300 blocks
  6. and 1500 made 3-pointers

in only 668 games. Paul Pierce was previously the fastest player to reach all those marks, but it took him 913 games to get there.

They still won and he is averaging the numbers he needs to to finish with another triple double.


Just because Russ had a few games with 10 or more rebounds doesn't mean he will average more than 11.3 RPG over the next 19 games. Who knows, maybe it does in your mind, but I won't venture there. I actually hope he does finish with another triple-double because it will just delegitimize the one he had last season by showing that all that whiny little bitch cares about is padding his stats instead of winning like a true MVP like Harden does.


Westbrook has surpassed Harden this season in one category, turnovers. He's ahead 289-231.

Let me know when he becomes a player that wins a ring. Because all those stats will be forgotten about if he don't.

Nothing about the Beard will be forgotten once he gets a ring (or two).


Of course according to you Harden will never get a ring, or an MVP despite the fact that he has been the favorite for this year's MVP for a while.

But they are 89-1 when all three play. And when Harden is missing just one sidekick, they play much worse....

Anything is going to be a huge dropoff from 33-1. But even 17-12 with one of the big 3 missing is still better than 28-35 (LAL).
