The one time a 48-minute basketball game accomplished something that couldn't have been done in 10.

Marcus Smart just ate Harden's soul in those final few seconds. The first foul looked like a bona fide flop, but Harden definitely created enough contact on the second one with his forearm that even a far more honorable player than Smart would've gone down to sell the call, and he did so out of sheer frustration that even he can't outflop the Flop Master.

I'll admit, those two plays in succession along with their second half collapse in general, made the Wolves blown 20 point lead sting much, much less.

The rocket was fine, it was the capsule support module that blew a valve.

I admit it, I turned the game off and went to dinner.  Saw the "highlights" at a bar later.  WTF Harden?

Wolves dropped a 20-point lead yesterday as well.

I feel like the 76ers have been blowing 20 plus point leads on a regular basis.

I almost DVR'd the game and wanted to kick myself after i saw how the game played out.

As a Cavs fan, Celtics are a rival, however when they play the Warriors or Houston, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.... hence. Go Celtics!

I watched the first half with disinterest, and most of the last quarter thinking "dammit, they'll lose by 4.   can't crack that last 4 points"

Followed by 13.7s of WTF?  WTH?  WTAF?  How big is that horseshoe up your arse?

Then many minutes of giggling at "The Beard" mumbling "No.......No.......No......No....." while shaking his head.   He looked emotionally destroyed.    I hope he never wins a championship.   He's a hacking flopper himself.   And Russel Westbrook.   He's also going to have the "but he never won a championship" asterisk beside his career stats.    Warms my heart.

Not everyone can just sign on with an All-Star team that has already won a title, Kevin.

I was in and out of the game while watching the Bruins blow a two goal lead to the Capitals (as usual). But I got back in for the final couple minutes and what Marcus Smart did was a thing of beauty. Kind of made up for the bullshiat technicals on Stevens and Morris.

By now the league surely has to know the Celtics don't quit. But if I was a Rockets fan I would have never been comfortable with that lead given what Houston has been going through lately.

NBA has come out and verified that both charges were indeed charges.

Oops, but then they said Smart should have been called for traveling before passing it to Tatum, and Horford should have been called for traveling on his last shot. The last to buckets that won the game.

I wouldn't say I missed it, subby.
