    This is the series for Houston with Leonard out. They aren't winning the series if they can't take this.

    Kawhi looks pretty bad. Really does not matter whoever wins. Hopelessly outgunned against GS whoever wins this series. Still think Houston wins this.

    Should've went to Ryan Anderson. Probably would have tied the game up
    Yeah he should have take it there instead of pass it to Harden.

    Really it comes down to Kawhi's injury. If he's out for the series the Spurs can't win this.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    It looks like KL needed help to walk to lockeroom.

    San Antonio got the experience Houston doesn't.
    SA has a good coach. Houston doesn't.

    Fixed it for you

    Lol Ginobili, you gotta admire how he competes at his age.
    If it were the NFL, he'd be getting a "random" drug test today. Amazing that he can still be such a factor.
    It's a new day for Pacers Basketball.

    Interesting what happened to Houston's offense in crunch-time of Game 4. Here is my take: In this new era of pace and space basketball, how do teams like the Rockets & Warriors adjust in the closing minutes of a tight game, when traditionally teams have always wanted to slow the game down in order to make the right decision (i.e., play lower-risk basketball)? I think this is where we saw Harden & Co. fail Tuesday night, whereas Popovich was able to get his savvy vets to adjust to the change in the game's tempo.

    This might very well be a similar problem the Warriors face in the closing minutes of tight 4th quarters (and maybe why they lost to the Cavs last year who were able to adjust to the changing pace that crunch time brings); sure, you can move the ball freely and take the first open three during the first 45 minutes of the game, but what happens when your nerves take hold and every possession is precious? This is when someone like Aldridge can actually make a huge difference for a team, despite his disappointments when the game is uptempo. Thus, I have hope that traditional big-men can reclaim their relevance in the future of the league.

    Also, these plays where Harden uses the contact from the defender fighting through the screen to draw a three-point foul might ruin the game more than Hack-A-Shaq. The refs need to swallow their whistles in these moments. I saw Isaiah Thomas do it a few times yesterday as well. This is not basketball.

    It should be a no calll or an offensive foul since he's really initiating it.
    Lance is finally home. Whether he becomes our starting PG or he's 6th man, he's getting big minutes and he's here to stay. #llortontnia

    Definitely a no call. It is the same thing defensive players do bumping the offensive player and pushing them with their bodies getting them off balance.
    Offensive players do it in the reverse.

    I heard on NBA radio that he was at practice and not limping. So sounds to me like he is playing

    Smart move to keep Kwahi out. Spurs have a game in the bag. If they lose tonight, they still have game 7 in San Antonio. Best to get him ready for that game.

    I have a strong dislike for James Harden, but at this point I'd rather see the Rockets win the series because they can at least make a matchup with the Warriors interesting and exciting.

    Yeah it's hard for me to go against the Spurs but this is my line of thinking, I can't see Spurs winning anything vs GS specially if KL is injured now.

    Wow although I shouldn't be surprised they have a Game 7 if the Rockets actually win this thing.

    They won't though. The Spurs always ruin it for MDA

    Houston looks like they are ready to go home, Harden is taking a day off.

    This is why I never understood why people were so high on MDA he won't win anything because he doesn't care about defense that he would be exposed in the playoffs.

    No defense, no rings.

    Harden has quit again, turning ball over, playing lazy basketball, he is just going through the motions.
