Yeah, the STUPIDITY of keeping Harden out there with a 20 pt lead. I actually told a friend of mine at the bar watching the game, "They need to pullt he starters out. WHat are they thinking (or not)?"
Then BOOM! off to the locker room.
And they're lucky Chris Paul didn't get hurt, he only plays 110% full speed, and is injury prone. That is trying to cover a point spread or what? The game was secure. They have blown many leads, but 6ers looked BAAAAD.
I saw two wide open 3s, the kind where the Rocket defenders just say "Fk it, ur open, I aint movin, just hit it" But Philly missed those open looks 3 times in the second half. That's 9 points. That is not 6ers basketball. They just took this one on the chin. Lace em up another day.
Harden was almost lost for the season.
