Will Houston now win the series vs Golden st with Durant out?

I feel houston is a lock to win game 6 at home, it all comes down to can they win game 7 on the road.

Golden State is I believe 21-3 or something without KD in the lineup since he’s been there. Hard to say they’re a better team when you take the best player on the planet off the team, but the ball moves so freely and they just seem like a whole different animal without him. Problem is, unlike before KD joined them, they have absolutely zero bench now. Add to that Harden’s disappearing act he continues to put out there when the going gets tough and I’s almost say I’d take Golden for this series, but they don’t go any further than that.

Harden isn't the problem. When they get nothing from Capella and Chris Paul the Rockets have no chance. Either those guys step their game up or no matter what Harden does this is over.

Harden can never win the big one. He’s not mentally up to the task

Dantoni either

That may have been true for 1 year. Now Curry is just a second banana on team with much better players around him. He's nobody's dada. Luckily Clay carried the team while Curry was going scoreless for an entire half. Not really fair to compare Harden to Curry anymore. Harden v Durant is the closer comparison. Curry better compared to washed up old Chris Paul or Eric Gordon.

Harden for the series averaged 10 pts. more per game. Harden had more assist, rebounds, steals, blocks and shot a higher % overall and from 3 than Curry. Curry not really one of the big boys anymore. Curry's just another role player on Durant's team.

Curry is his dada Mark. Paul tried to keep the rockets in it but curry was too much in the 4th. Poor Harden.

Curry is his dads. This is obviously Durants team when healthy, but since he went down Curry reminded Harden who his real dada is. Lights Houston up in the 4th when Harden goes down and lights them up in 2nd half when its money time.

Curry?????

The Curry who shot 18 % from 3 in the series?
The Curry who missed 34569371209 layups?
The Curry who cant guard a wet paper bag?

G st loses the 1st 2 games at home if Durant didnt save them
Klay and the bench had them tied at halftime yesterday and Curry had ZERO points

Iggy had more threes (5) than Curry yesterday

Curry getting the credit when it was Klay, Iggy, Looney and the rest of the bench that saved the day

Fuck that one trick pont who has been awful in his one trick all playoffs long

Only Harden criticism I have is his dissapearing act in the 4t Q in game 5 ...took 3 shots in the 4th with Durant gone.

Houston should be embarrassed tho....how they dont win that game at home last night is beyond me. Tied at the half with no Durant and steph with zero points is INSANE

CP3 no showed the fiest 5 games man...common

And Harden is most likely going to get fucked over for MVP again
This should be his 3rd

The one trick pony beat his in a travesty one year and Greek Freak (who i am a HUUUUGE fan of is going to beat him this year) Harden had a historical year and should be MVP hands down

With Durant out its money time all game
Dude had zero points in the 1st have and was a human turnstile on D (as he has been his whole career)

Klay, Iggy Looney and the bench the real heroes and you guys and the media are jerking off a guys who is having an absolutely atrocious playoffs

We agree on one thing. Poor Harden. The Rockets were stupid enough to lock into 40 mil per year for a washed up Chris Paul which means no help for Harden for 3 more years. Poor Harden. Harden 1 or 2 for MVP again this year while Curry continues to fade further behind. Harden is one of the leagues best players while Curry is just another guy on Durant's team. So if Curry is his dada so is Green, Thompson, Iguodala and all the other Warriors. You guys should jump on the Durant bandwagon and argue if he is better than Harden. At least that is comparing apples to apples. A few years ago this was a fair debate now Curry is nothing special. But he does play on a really good team with lots of other good players. So he's got that going for him which is nice.

Curry is a one trick pony...Barely cracks the top 10 IMO

I Have.... not counting LeBitch who missed the whole year

1) Durant
2) Harden
3) Leanard
4) Greek Freek
5) AD
6) Westbrook

Solid list. Overall Thompson may be the 2nd best player in the Warriors.

Averaged a triple double for 3 yrs in a row..common man!!

Curry best shooter of all time but that's it !!

Westbrook does EVERYTHING

If Westbrook could shoot from the outside he would be one if the GOATS

Sick of ppl bashing Harden and Russ cause of their looks and demeanor...while Steph is loved cause he relates to the avg joe... unfair

Klay pretty even with steph offensively and 100000000 x better defender

Now 30-1 I believe when Curry plays without Durant. That is a ridiculous stat.

Draymond MVP of the series if you know basketball

1000 %

Curry had a great series...sucked the 1st 2 series shooting 18%
Let's not pretend they beat a good team in Portland

There isn't one team in the league who would take Westbrook over Curry, and that includes OKC
