terrible call on Hayward.  Seriously, we are at the point of calling that?

This switch everything crap has allowed Harden to get hot early.
Whatever crushes individuality is despotism, by whatever name it may be called and whether it professes to be enforcing the will of God or the injunctions of men.

I'm just not a Harden fan. Superstar no doubt, but it's clear he benefits from the refs and also he's basically an iso-guy. No team, and no defense either. It's why he's also labeled a choker often in the playoffs, when his shots don't fall the team suffers as a whole because they aren't used to it. And his attitude when things don't go his way legit mirrors Lebron...

With the guys on the floor right now, LEAVE Jaylen on Harden, don't switch.

Should have been the gameplan with Smart on him.  Smart guards Harden as well as anyone in the league.  Not sure why we stick with our usual defensive schemes, when Harden is anything but a usual player.

Consistency is just a huge problem with this team. Play their heart outs one game, come out extremely flat the next, and repeat. Ugh.

Harden is carving up GH.  Please, keep Jalen on him, no switches...

I agree, force someone else, ANYONE else to beat us.

Thanks. That's a bummer. I would've liked him getting some minutes against Capela....

Hayward, Rozier and Brown 3 man lineup = 98.4 offensive rating entering tonight.
