Yet another historic game for James Harden

So Westbrook averaging a triple-double last season means everything in the world, even though his team was one and done mainly because of his 4th quarter meltdowns. And even though Harden's team beat his, and he is also responsible for 2 of the 3 most points accounted for in a game (points plus points off assists) in NBA history, not to mention all of the other historic games he's had in the past two seasons, these are all totally meaningless only because Harden failed to average 10 rebounds a game last season.....:rolleyes:

HOU was obviously better and struggled to beat a one man show.

 

And yes, a year long triple double is more impressive than what Harden did. A lot of D'Antonis teams and players have set offenseive records. Suns set a lot of records too and never won shit. Nash even won a MVP or two, but no ring. Harden wont do either.

 

And Harden got one round further than Westbrook with a much more complete team. Congrats.

And Westbrook isnt close to being the 3 pt shooter Harden is.

About the smartest thing ever posted here by Simple Jake.

 

Let's say Harden is slightly above average throughout his career from 3-point range.

 

What does that make Westbrook? A better 3-point shooter than say, Lonzo Ball?

 

And despite this enormous discrepancy, Russ is somehow clearly superior in your estimation.

 

The only thing Westbrook is better at than Harden is rebounding. And putting up gaudy stats.

Harden didn't have an historic night (for once), but Chris Paul did have his 38th career game with 30+ points and 10+ assists, which is the exact same number Michael Jordan had during his illustrious career. Of course James Harden will probably have at least twice that number by the end of his record-breaking career. But for those who think triple-doubles are the most important stat in basketball, Westbrook now has more triple-doubles in a calendar year than any other player in NBA history which must make him the best player who ever played the game.....:rolleyes:

This is how a real team performs in the 4th quarter, unlike OKC or LA. The Rockets set a shot-clock era record for the largest margin of victory (21 points) while trailing by 5 points or more after 3 quarters.

 

They outscored Utah 37-8 in the last 10 minutes of the game for their 14th consecutive win.

Utah isn't even a playoff team. So congrats?

 

And you keep comparing what you believe to be a title contender to a team who had a complete roster shake-up and a team that is in year 2 of a rebuild. 

 

Lol, loser.

This n***a so obsessed with Westbrook. Love it.

 

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

 

Which makes most other stats irrelevant.

 

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

Didn’t you learn from your suspension last time, Simple Jake?

For the discussion, if Capella can show that double Eurostep play a few more times,  it will give the Rockets 4 legitimate scorers which puts them equal to the Warriors.. anxious to see the development of Capella ..

But can they defend like GSW when it matters?

 

If they find themselves down 3 games to 2, are they gonna give up again?

 

Im curious to see how CP3 can hold up throughout an entire series while guarding Steph the whole time.

 

And that will only come after two other series they will have to get through.

 

Remember,  they got beat bad by SA last year. They have to prove they can beat them before they see GSW.

Agree on the lack of defense with this team.. did you see Joe Ingles make that open layup last night.. I mean that was very weak defense..

I missed that, but yea they lack it at times. They have definitely improved since last year. But doing it consistently against great players and coaches in a 7 game series is a much different animal.

He is already #1 in the NBA in FG efficiency, and if Capela played 30-35 minutes a game like most big men with his skill set do, he would easily be in the top 2 or 3 in rebounds and blocks too.

 

Their big 4 of Harden, CP3, Capela, and Gordon don't get all the respect that those guys with Golden State do, at least not yet. The Rockets already beat the Warriors on their own floor opening night, and the next two games they play will be here in Houston. Their current 14-game winning streak has the be one of the quietest in NBA history. They have won 20 of their last 21 games, if not for the loss to Toronto they would have a 21-game winning streak right now.

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.
