Listen: James Harden, Jeff Van Gundy And Clippers discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Of the James is hardened business that didn't last very long. I thought you were your homework. Assignment last night was to watch the rockets and the clippers and count the number of times James Harden got fouled in quotation. I did and the over under was fifteen free throws for James Harden and he shot. How many last night seventeen? But here's the thing okay. It was so he's only two in the first half. He shot to foul shots. They were not calling beverly for contact. Then things got totally out of control in the second in half and I I tweeted out some of the non fouls fouls and became like sort of like the face of a cause that I don't want that he did. Everyone was on me me like Oh my God he's right the NBA has to do something then. All these rockets fans were calling me a hater and that it just got totally thousand arrives. God He was like I have no idea what's going on here like they don't know how to officiate hard. They don't have the slightest idea hardened knows how he's being officiated and he's taking advantage of that because as as as Jeff Van Gundy astutely pointed out yesterday in the last hour. If you'RE GONNA have your hands in front of you with harden he's going to use that against you because he will get tangled up intertwined with you and then he will get the call he knows how to sell it. He's strong enough to have continuation so he's going to be shooting therefore he's GonNa have free throws he merely put up forty seven last night with seven assists he's had seventy career games with at least forty points and five assists the last player. Who did anything close to that? Was Michael Jordan. Perhaps you've heard of him had ninety one total but James Harden Seventieth career game with forty in at least five assists. Yes boy I watched quite a bit of the rockets last night. I don't find that brand of basketball to entertaining because it seems very redundant when they come down the court art. We know exactly what's going to happen with their offense of setup in less James Harden's not in the game than it has more of a has more of a flow to it but it's I don't find that entertaining just watching the same same guy do the same thing and I know that Jeff Van Gundy said he had no questions whatsoever with the clippers. I do I mean Paul George is going to be coming back. They didn't play well last night. But I think interior offense and defense I do. I still have some question marks about this team now. Do they have the pieces there. Yes they do. And you've got a great coach by the way. Did you see that Austin rivers who plays for the rockets was saying to the official T.. Up My dad last night. I think it's a dog getting a technical here. Is"
