    You can't blame the coach on that one, I am sure he told his players that, it was the players fault, they fell asleep.

    As the analysts have said, switching is second nature and done in practice everyday but in crucial moments, some just zone out or focus on their man.

    I mean out of all the Blazers on the court, I am 110% sure Mchale told them Lillard was the most dangerous (he has done it over and over again all season long) and Harden should have switched off there but his defense have been questionable all year so I'd easily put the blame on him.

    I can't stay up for these last WC games anymore. So it looks like I missed a great one?

    And are you guys telling me that Houston lost the series because James Harden had a defensive lapse? Noooo!. :lol:

    Great shot, terrible defense. Houston let the one guy they couldn't let catch the ball make the one shot they couldn't allow.

    i really hope this is the impetus for harden to start playing defense


    in that video they left it out, but they switched parsons and beverly thinking mo would screen for damian lillard and beverly would switch back to lillard when that happened. mo never sets the pick, parsons gets surprised, switch never occurs, lillard just starts running like hell, harden is like oh how nice damian lillard streaking by and parsons three feet behind him, and then lillard makes the shot


    mchale is telling his guys "stay with your guy" at the end of the game

    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    which they didn't. they switched assignments



    i also don't understand why harden is out there. lin might be a terrible defender but he's better than harden

    Anybody give much of a chance to OKC tonight?

    Methinks they were screwed when Randolph was suspended.

    OKC should be a lock in to win w/o Randolph and with Conleys hamstring injury.

    That was the best game of the playoffs last night. Wow. I thought Houston had that locked, and I really wanted a game 7, this was such a great series.

    That last shot wasn't just Harden. I know why Parsons was put on Lillard but I would have put Harden on him from the start since you just knew they were going to screen for Lillard and then either Beverly or Parsons would have had him. What a lapse, but in that moment, the math says there is almost know way that Portland can win it so you shut off.

    Just scored tickets to Raps-Nets tomorrow. Should be a great atmosphere, hope the Raptors hold up their end of the bargain. The last 5 quarters have been ugly.

    I'm hoping Matt Bonner will show up to fight him again.

    Hoping Mem can somehow pull this off. Best hope is Gasol with a monster night and beastly team D, with Westbrook doing his part providing ball denial to Durant.
