2-8-james-harden-rockets-blazers

February 9, 2013

The Houston Rockets are on a roll again, because of one man – James Harden playing his best basketball in the past few games, making everyone on the team, including Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons, look much better than usual.

After a very rough stretch for Harden & the Rockets in January, which included 7 straight losses and Harden shooting below 25% in certain games, a switch was made. The game is still Harden-focused, but the Rockets are spreading the floor much better and spreading the ball, which means Harden isn’t only looking out for his own numbers, a lot better than before.

I’m just focused on rallying these guys together, every single game. If I’m leading and showing my work ethic, they’ll follow. 

In their sixth win of the last eight games, the Rockets beat the Portland Trail Blazers 118-103, which keeps the Blazers two games behind the Rockets in the Western playoff race. James Harden scored 35 points and added 11 assists, making it 35.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 9 assists for him over the last couple of games, while shooting 71.8% from the field. Yes, Harden, a man who settled for every tough jumper and shot he could get about a month ago, is the kind of efficient shooting all of a sudden.

Tonight was one of those where it’s just like he makes play after play after play. and then you look up and you realize, ‘Oh, he had a great game.’ You kind of take it for granted sometimes. He’s making shots and he’s making plays. You look at a guy with 35 points, 11 assists, seven rebounds and (he) threw a steal in there. It was really impressive.

It’s hard to tell if Jeremy Lin is really bothered about becoming more of a spot up shooter, giving away more and more of his duties as a point guard to Harden, who gets to lead the ball and the attack every time the Rockets cross the halfway line. When he’s this hot, and it looks like every play he makes is the right one, there’s no arguing about this being the right kind of MO for the Rockets.

Jeremy Lin finished with 16 points, shooting 6-10 from the field, 2-3 from beyond the arc. Someone who’s been really thriving lately, since the Rockets made certain tweaks to their offense, is Chandler Parsons, who is averaging 18.3 points per game in February (14.5 this season), who scored 20 points while hitting four shots from beyond the arc. Parsons seems to be the man most enthusiastic about the Rockets’ recent success and changes, which have probably helped him, in an individual kind of way, more than the rest of the team.

Patrick Patterson has also been on a roll lately, averaging 16.8 points this month (11.4 this season) and his name is less and less mentioned when the trade deadline and the power-forward need the Rockets have are brough up. Patterson scored 16 points, shooting above 58% from the field in four of the Rockets’ last five games.

Streaky players, streaky superstars, streaky season. The Rockets aren’t a team that will make it far in the playoffs – not with their depth, not their personnel and not their style, which doesn’t hold up when the games slow down, and become more and more reliant on the ability of James Harden to make something out of nothing. But for the regular season? It’s not only good enough for wins and being the highest scoring team in the NBA, but it actually looks like they’re having fun.

Lakers forward Metta World Peace connects with his left elbow to the side of the head of Thunder guard James Harden while celebrating a dunk late in the second quarter Sunday afternoon at Staples Center. World Peace was ejected for a flagrant-two foul.

 

April 23, 2012, 8:30 a.m.

Within a five-second span, Metta World Peace threw everything away.

His vicious elbow didn’t just damage Oklahoma City forward James Harden. It damaged World Peace’s reputation. His ensuing ejection didn’t just hang the Lakers out to dry as they somehow managed to escape with a 114-106 double-overtime victory Sunday over the Oklahoma City Thunder. It left them wondering if they can win without him, since World Peace probably will draw a lengthy suspension. And his apology afterward that it was an “unintentional elbow” isn’t just laughable because the Lakers’ public relations staff refused to allow him to take follow-up questions. It’s head-scratching because the replays show World Peace’s blow was hardly an accident.

There’s no reason World Peace would cock his arm and then rear back with such force unless he was planning to hit somebody. And because of the severity of that incident, World Peace deserves a suspension that lasts as long as Harden remains sidelined as he tries to recover from a concussion.

Let’s make one thing clear: World Peace is in most cases a good person and doesn’t fit the image he once in large part because of his involvement in one of the darkest moments in NBA history. In 2004 as an Indiana Pacer, Artest went into the Pistons’ crowd after beer had been thrown at him and punched a fan. The incident sparked an 86-game suspension, the longest penalty for a physical altercation in NBA history, and he received a year’s probation for pleading no contest to assault charges.

Since then, World Peace earned the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship award last year for his efforts raising money for mental health charities, including raffling off his 2010 NBA championship ring. He famously thanked his psychologist for helping him control his emotions following Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals. And covering him for the past 2 1/2 seasons, World Peace (and Ron Artest) has proved to be a genuinely nice human being who makes people laugh with his goofy antics along the way.

But that doesn’t matter.

When the NBA looks at the replay, they’re not going to care about intent. For better or worse, they’re not going to care about his reputation, either. They’re going to care about what World Peace did. And it was inexcusable.

In a moment when emotions completely overwhelmed him regarding his third dunk, World Peace cocked his arm and then reared back to deliver the vicious elbow. Say what you will about World Peace being caught up in the heat of the moment, not realizing his own strength or even realizing Harden was within striking distance. But logic suggests otherwise. Because of that, World Peace will have to pay a heavy price.

Two of Wands Tarot card

28 year + 4 (April) = 32 = his personal month (from April 13th, 2012 to May 12th, 2012) = Following his third dunk of the game, World peace pounded his chest alternately with both fists. Then, as Harden was moving toward the baseline, World Peace swung his left arm above his shoulder and struck Harden in the left side of his head, sending the Thunder guard crashing to the court.  As Harden was motionless on the court, World Peace stood in a boxing stance as Thunder forwards Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka rushed toward World Peace.

Six of Wands Tarot card

32 month + 22 (22nd of the month on Sunday April 22nd, 2012) = 54 = his personal day = Check this out.  Watch this.  Look at this.  Roll the tape.  Interview.  No questions.
