What's up, everybody? It's my mate.
Your main man, Chris Morrison, here for the lead.
Sports media dot com Here to talk about the fourth quarter of the Houston Clippers game here on ESPN.
The Houston Rockets are up 74 to 68 with about 30 seconds into the fourth quarter.
Lou Williams pulls up at the elbow and obviously makes a jumper to make it a 76.
Excuse me, 74 to 70 ballgame.
Houston is now up by four points and obviously going to the line.
It looks like with me watching the app, the score is gonna be a little bit more head than me than what I'm actually watching.
And Clippers now around down 75 73 or whatever.
Looks like the score is fluctuating.
What have you and we'll figure that out.
Obviously, it's time moves itself forward, you know, watching this game.
I've only watched a little bit of the second half here, and it looks like another one of those regular season games where teams are gonna fluctuate between, you know, around 100 points and quiet's coming out doing his thing, and it's looking like you got guys like Lou Williams.
We're gonna really carry the load.
Once quiet takes is taken out of the game.
Montrose Harold, the rest of the team, et cetera.
You know, and then you look at what's going on with the Houston Rockets.
James Harden's obviously having another outstanding game.
Now he's struggling hard core for 15 from the floor.
You're seeing some things here in regards to what's happening in this, and they brought it up.
They brought it up earlier with with the Clippers that they're slowly starting to make a comeback, slowly started to try and make their way.
Come back into this game.
Get the victory went on the road.
You know, these road victories for teams like the Clippers are the kind of games that you need to really establish yourself as a championship contender, especially early on in the year.
You know, we're three weeks in great block there by the Houston Rockets.
James Harden, Russell Westbrook out the ball, coming up top of the key 10 and 1/2 minutes left in the fourth quarter.
Obviously, you're seeing them drive the lane, but the craziest thing that I think watching these games in September, and seeing how they're playing out early is it's what's funny about these games.
They don't really mean a whole lot in regards to what happens down the road now.
Obviously, they have ramifications in regards to tie breakers and etcetera and things like that.
But in regards to everything else that's happening in the N B A for the keyed long term state college baseball, you know, in some degree, like you have a three game, four game Siri's and it could be pivotal points.
And this is one of those games where things can get a little bit pivotal.
Things could get a little bit tough.
Things get a little bit brutal, like, you know what I mean? Like, since this is a big time match up big time opponents that face one another.
You see a little bit of a glimpse of things that could happen throughout the year and obviously for the place.
But so early, you know, 23 weeks and four weeks, almost a month, and starting next week, these games are are fun, but they don't have big time ramifications.
It always makes me laugh when they always try to make these games into these massive ramification games early on in the air, Obviously no sponsoring and promotion and all those type of things you gotta obviously you got a You got to see that for what it is.
But looking at what the Clippers have done thus far, you know, let me pull up some stats, hears from standings, et cetera.
Let me get into that real quick, obviously as ah, let me get into that real quick as we as we look at this now.
10 minutes left.
Houston's up, 75 73.
Pull back by James Harden.
Quiet with the rebound.
You're looking at them taking it out on the break.
Obviously, Lou Williams.
Patrick Beverley from the corner.
Mrs needs to make that wide open shot.
Obviously, you got to make those in transition.
Here comes hard on down the lane.
Obviously got dudes all over him.
He just traveled the basketball floating for the rim.
Let's let's look at these standings for these teams and seeing where they're at early on in the year you were here in the fourth quarter, my favorite part about the n b A.
Is that They love to talk about what's happening throughout the league in these Games, but then come before court, they really start to nail down and talk about what's happening in the game.
And, well, obviously, we're here for the lead sports media to talk about what's happening around the league and to see where these teams sit right now in the in the standings of the MBA.
Both teams in the Western Conference, Houston seven and three, the Clippers or 73 big game in regards to kind of where the path may take them for the next 72 games for the season.
Excuse me, 71 because this is game and 11 for both teams, Harden gets the ball 75 73 9 and 1/2 minutes left to go.
I haven't seen his stats for the game this far.
Austin ever says the ball at the top of the key.
You have mantra as Harold.
Guard him up top.
That should be a mismanaged AAAs.
Rivers has lost her.
Everything's and misses the shot s.
So we go into the stats of this game and what's happening this far? I wanted to break down.
Obviously What was happening? What is the case? Obviously the apple before behind Hard, obviously.
Not obviously a superstar call.
Call where b e s. Yeah, I agree with PJ.
Not a lot of contact there in the paint kind of B s.
If you ask me, please let me see.
You see the replay here Always reaching he's reaching Oh, where they should have called the foul prior.
When you're watching it is you should have seen P.
Tucker get the foul when he reached in before, not when he was leaning his body in.
So if you're watching this game live, obviously you're probably watching me far behind cause streaming and I'm watching it through the app s.
So I'm probably about 23 minutes back.
Tucker reach a little bit.
In reality, he bodied up Kawai when he bodied up.
Kawai, What should have happened is before that they should have called the foul.
Not while he was in the process of shooting, but obviously with superstar car.
They're gonna give him that and they're gonna make him get on the line.
Obviously, there's a technical.
I don't know what for what The p J.
Tucker look weird or something.
They do Rasheed Wallace and barely say anything and get a technical foul for nothing.
Dan didn't did D'Antoni step up for his player because that was that was a B s call from that perspective.
Game's tied now 75 75.
Quiet the line of time.
Split the tie there, but watching this game, Quads got 20 points.
10 rebounds. Five.
It's just, you know, it's funny, the whole load management thing.
If you didn't hear my spiel on Episode 1 97 of the Hoopers Log last Sunday, go check it out in the lead.
Sports me dot com I do a show.
The Hoopers Long I've been doing it for since 2016 for this unit.
I used to do it for the seal on this radio back in the day they do Boston Celtics postgame shows, and it set for another Boston based programming.
I used to do shows for them and see what was happening.
But for the most part, uh, you know, this is what I d'oh talk sports.
I'm here to give you the feedback.
75 75 9 minutes to go time out Somewhere on the floor.
I don't know why, but apparently these players need more arrests than they need.
But apparently they're talking about Cho I Leonard and load management, and it's funny because everybody's upset about it and freaking out whatever.
But in all reality, he's really the only guy that is deserving of even doing this.
Ninth season. The league.
They're showing the stats right now to time MBA champ. Two time finals.
Two time defensive player of the year.
Five time M B A defensive all team three time all n b A.
I mean, this dude's already got a Hall of Fame resume and he's doing what he wants right now, and it's working 60 games.
Last year he played, and now he's playing in the league and doing what he's doing it.
It bears qualification for himto have an opportunity to play like this.
I don't like it.
I'm not a fan of it.
I'd rather be like Russell Westbrook.
We play every night and do what you're supposed to do.
And obviously James Harden, were you playing unless you're hurt.
Wow! Russell Westbrook three pointer to break the tie, 78 75.
Houston With less than nine minutes to go in the ballgame.
Quiet at the ball, coming up the floor.
So watching this game and seeing what's happening all together, watching Kawai dribble up and down.
Take somebody to school number 16 for the Rockets.
Boom. Pass out past. That's going in.
So you see how this game is playing out.
78 78 8 30 to go in the ball game.
Russell Westbrook Bringing the ball up the floor.
You see how Houston is starting to set their screens and let Russ really take over the game. It's interesting.
Taking a three boom brick, as usual, usually misses the shop before was rare because rest doesn't usually make those kind of baskets late in games.
In fact, for them to rely on rust right now, at this point in time of the game is showing you the kind of faith that D'Antoni has in Russell Westbrook to give them to get something going.
Which is interesting because Oklahoma City, as we all know in the fourth quarter, Russell Westbrook, has his problems in the fourth.
His problems down the stretch now are obviously not in Russell Westbrook, you know, struggle mode.
Mantra as hell with a beautiful take.
Didn't quite make it clean. Capello The defense.
Oh, there we go.
Number four Montrose with the ball up top reset, obviously get collide with the ball.
That's right that you 14 seconds after the rebound coop going to work down local.
He's gotta get rid of it.
And then there goes the Houston Rockets taking it down the court to dunk it.
80 to 78 7 40 left in the ballgame.
Quite gets the ball back.
Taking it I So, Patrick Beverley, that of all the top hardens got him on the brake hard.
Did not read the picket.
All Patrick Beverly has been working on the teardrops Lady and gentleman man, The defensive dynamo out on the perimeter working on the teardrops 80 80 70 22 Go 7 20 to go in the ball game Russell Westbrook.
Other always take mantra.
Gets splashed up to number 18.
I don't know the number 18 is my bad.
I should know I'm a pro at this.
I should know all these names.
Also, let's get the ball in Montrose. Hell.
Five seconds on the shot clock and dribble, dribble, dribble.
Do what he does.
Dribble to pound the ball, Pass it out to the corner.
Let's see if he makes that no brick mountain.
So I got the rebound again.
Was that 12 rebounds from the night of 20 points? 12 rebounds? 80 80.
You're looking at how this game go, Kawai.
Oh, interesting play Their Kawai trying to get the foul gets it.
Obviously, Superstar call breaks the tie 83 to 80.
Kawai goes to the line for a four point play less than seven minutes to go.
And I think I'm gonna take a timeout because they need more breaks in the MBA is most guys do it load management, Although they should have called the foul with him running through mantra.
Is Harold there That again? These calls on Kawai are so M J LeBron Kobe superstar type calls.
I mean, you you look at these calls that these dudes are getting and you sit there and you start to say **** like these last two calls on Kawai.
They should have been called out there earlier, prior to the shot or for different reasons, with a pass out of bounds.
I obviously don't know what the bonus situation is right now in the fourth quarter.
I think they've only had, like, two or three fouls on the Clippers thus far.
But Allie's going to line 83 80 with about seven and 1/2 minutes to go in the fourth.
And you know, when we watch Kawai for the rest of this season, remember where now we're at Game 11 for both these teams right now, Two teams that we can sit here and legitimately talk about in the conversation for potentially meeting with a championship contender.
And you know, Houston has their problems with guys like Russ, who can play in the fourth quarter who may have problems.
You look at a guy like James Harden, another guy who has known to struggle late in the playoffs and in late in these times in this situation, you also look at what they have as a coach.
You know his record speaks for itself in regards to what Dan Toni brings to this organization.
What he has done, he's he's led them to a Western Conference finals.
He's led them to an opportunity to get to an MBA final like really close.
Obviously, if Chris Paul didn't get hurt, maybe they get to the finals.
I think they do.
And so how they're built, how they're structured, they have their core.
They have everybody that they need to make a run Now.
Now it's all about questioning what the depth can provide them.
We know what the Clippers depth is.
We know what the Clippers have is a unit.
They have a championship style unit.
Houston relies, obviously, as we know on James Harden a lot now in regards to how that's going to anticipate how the season and how, the rest of the way, how the rest of the way is going to flow.
We're going to need to see the Houston Rockets do similar things to what they did two years ago, when the 1 60 games to be the number one seed in the Western Conference.
And so seeing that and understanding that, we're gonna need to know if Houston is still that team and still that for real hard is going to keep playing like the M v P guy that he was two years ago, when they were the ones he's gonna have to do that.
Russell Westbrook's gonna need to step back.
That's why I think coming out of this half is this this time outbreak.
We need to see the Houston Rockets just absolutely cement themselves as a team that's gonna allow James Harden to again carry the team down the stretch.
You cannot bank on Russell Westbrook late in the game to do much, because if you do, you're just going to get job.
You're just going to get ruined as a team.
He's proven it multiple times in Oklahoma City, obviously three straight years of triple double averages Three straight years of being an unbelievable beast obviously average double double his first year, 2016 2017 when he won the M V P and found a way to get that Team two.
Ah, level that we We didn't think what happened once they lost Katie and they still found a way to be competitive.
He doesn't need to do that.
You can think it Step back now and Russell Westbrook going back to that second man style, where he's the two man instead of one man.
We have seen those teams be ultra successful.
And if Clint Capela can stay the third guy on that team, you're looking at a massive opportunity for the Houston Rockets to be.
A team that could get into the Western Conference requires that the line is gonna make his free throw.
Obviously, I see the update on the scoreboard here to make it a four point play case six and 1/2 minutes ago.
Not seven and 1/2 6 and 1/2.
So we're almost at the halfway point in the fourth quarter.
Harden has the ball coming up.
The court passes it back around here we go there doing some swing style harden off screen.
Fallon, Pat Bev, Pat Beverly getting a little aggressive.
I like to see Pat Beverly try to go under the screen's a little bit with James Harden.
Obviously, we like to see that We like to see Pat Bev find a way to get hardened skin, because that's the only way right now, with the Clippers again making that run in the fourth quarter, they kept grinding away, chipping away, chipping away in the third.
They weren't making big runs, but they were chipping away at opportunities.
They found a way to now take Aly where they were down.
Come into this quarter again.
Why are you banking on Russell Westbrook down the stretch? Here's Harden at the top of the key.
Taking it in, obviously, one on four teardrop.
No good. You're not going to work.
It's not going to work that way.
You gotta have guys out on the outside of the perimeter to give James Harden a chance.
Now quiet the top.
PJ Tucker's got him.
Double team switched mantra.
Is Harold out in the paint trying to find a dish spot? Couldn't find him.
Lou Williams travels well, actually gets felt its trip.
But 6 13 to go in the fourth quarter.
We are where we are.
If you have questions for me, I know I'm kind of on my own Run.
I got my power alleys.
Here is you can tell, you know, involved in getting older, 29 years old if you have questions for me and what you think is gonna happen the rest of the way In regards to the season, we got 70 plus games to go.
If you want to ask questions on what I think's gonna happen for the year, shoot it, do it.
I'll answer him.
Obviously, I'm not looking a whole lot of the screen, but I can see you.
I mean my cameras here, obviously.
But if you want to put some some some questions down below, feel free to do so and I'll do so.
Mantra as hell shoots a three.
Weird goes to the top of the backboard and hits the shot clock.
It's 84 80 Clippers with six minutes to go.
We're halfway there, folks halfway there in the fourth quarter again.
If you got questions for me in regards to how both of these teams gonna look later on in the air, feel free to shoot it and take it. Take a shot.
Okay, So I'm just here to give you play by play ****ysis of what I see.
So hardens at the ball at the top of the key.
Kawai Montrose! Oh, wow.
Got in front of the block.
Mantra is heralded the block superstar call as I don't know where.
I don't know where the foul was there.
Let's see here we go.
We got a beautiful replay.
Kawai getting getting mon trays and Kwai behind him.
Cheryl Block that clean.
There's no foul there. That's it. Oh, well, wait a minute.
So I got him on the top of the head coming down.
So that is a foul in that regard.
Yeah, he nicked him in the top of the head.
That's fair. That's fair. I could see that.
I could definitely see that call being made, but obviously it's James Harden.
He's gonna get to the free throw line about 25 times a game because that's just the norm for him.
Um, I'm one of those were doing the Hoopers log.
You know, just talking here is Harden that the line is gonna make both the street does because he's the beard.
He's the best 84 82 Clippers now 5 52 to go.
I'm one of those where I do the hoopers log, where I just speak my mind and speak freely.
A lot of what I'm doing right here is what I do on the Hooper's dog.
It's fast, obviously not as fast paced and going.
I've been doing my show for over five years now.
So everything you see everything you everything you're hearing everything you're watching is what I do when I do my show.
Here comes hard down the lane Giving up all the rust rust dribbles takes a shot from three bang bang bangers, baby.
Let's go, Russ, Let's go, Let's go! 85 84 Clippers 85 84 Clippers 5 33 to go in the fourth quarter.
Another time out because the stars can't play too long. Girl, still get hurt.
Okay, so 85 84 Houston taking the lead, Taking it back to what they had coming into the fourth.
Interesting that they're going to Russell Westbrook at this point in time in the game for clutch moments.
We're getting to that point where we start to question Russ.
What is he trying to do? What is he trying to accomplish? What is he trying to establish Lay in the game? And we've seen it every single year in every single game where he constantly has these opportunities to shine and what does he do? He chokes in the greatest clutches of moments, and with a close game like this, 85 84 5 33 to go, and you have the Clippers playing the way they are coming back gritting, gutting, chipping away to get that lead back.
And obviously relying on coli Lou Williams mantra is Harold the rest of that crew.
To find a way to get themselves the lead and play well, which they are, They're playing fantastic basketball.
You look at the way the Clippers overall are chipping away at this game, but Houston still finds a way t take that lead and be where they are.
And so I when I'm watching, let's talk about let's talk about things after this game for a moment, moment while we're on the commercial break.
Let's talk about a couple of things.
I love to see if there's a question, but obviously all these updates on my phone and stuff okay, clippers down the stretch for as I have the mike in my face right here.
Talking of everyone, um, Clippers are a team where everyone thinks they're a championship team, right? Everybody thinks they're gonna win the title this year. Everything is guaranteed.
Well, I'm one of those.
I didn't pick the clippers.
Go the n b a finals this year.
I think there could get to the Western Conference finals. No debate.
I think there'll be a really good, unbelievable team.
In fact, they could win the title. Absolutely.
My opinion is this.
The Denver Nuggets and what they did last year being the one seat, I think it was the one seed in the West, one or two seed.
What happened over the two seed? That's right.
They played my Spurs. They went seven.
They beat my Spurs in seven.
You know, I'm a Spurs fan, by the way, Um, the Denver Nuggets and what they did last year, being impressive, showing that Yokich did that next step is a superstar is being a top three top five center in the league.
You look at Jamal Murray and what he did in the playoffs, you look at their overall unit.
Paul Millsap didn't play, I think for the first couple of months of the year, because he was hurt, or if not the year before, whatever he was hurt constantly, always hurt constantly.
Paul Millsap is.
And seeing how that unit performed with Mike Malone under the bell winning if not close to 60 games last year and playing at a ah at a level at a rate where you sat there and said, Yeah, that team is finally brewing.
That team is finally growing chemistry and doing what they're supposed to do as a team.
We all thought that would be I think they're the team.
That should be the favor in the West because of the chemistry the Lakers are playing for sensational.
They are because Dwight's playing like the Dwight we saw back in the day when he was with Orlando.
We're seeing not just what Dwight's doing, but obviously Anthony Davis.
We're also seeing what's happening with not just Anthony Davis and Dwight, but LeBron is still playing like the great LeBron.
I mean, he's putting up triple doubles every night.
He's finding a way to get guys involved.
He's taking somewhat of a step back, if not immersing himself into the team.
Unlike you did with Cleveland.
I mean, really, it's it's impressive.
This is what the Lakers were supposed to do and so knowing that and seeing that I can see it being the Battle of Italy for the finals in the Western Conference to get to the finals But I think that looking at it from an objective perspective as co watches, it's an elbow jumper like it's nothing like he's the best **** player in the N B A.
It's friggin ridiculous.
Taking the lead 86 85 5 minutes to go.
Got the ball the top of the key, but you get my point.
The Clippers should be a favorite, but I think that chemistry and togetherness and all these things that you immerse yourself with basketball, you start to see and you start to say, Heck, yeah, I can see this being the case.
I can see the Denver Nuggets making it shot.
Uh, Austin ever shot a three from the corner.
Obviously, Clippers got the ball.
The Williams has taken it up.
He's probably trying to get its quite know he's taken Rivers one on one down the stretch, getting down in the paint.
I got the ball back, though.
Try and make a play. Montrose.
Harold swings. It gets it out to Green on the corner.
Terrible, really, really, really bad.
Really bad play by Green took it to the Iraq out of control ran over Capella.
I think that's compelling.
Over 15 yet Ran ran over Capella out of control.
Capello looks hurt.
86 85 flippers for 30 to go in the ball game.
Um, that's not good.
That's not good.
I think it's more of a concussion deal.
What did he do? He's just sitting there squirming around, trying to figure it out.
This capella No, this is basketball and not soccer.
He must have really got hurt because, like for real, Um, I didn't look good.
Hope Capellas healthy.
They need capella because with the with Russ and Harden and the size, they're gonna need him to be a successful team this year.
I know the game's not really built on size and strength and prowess anymore.
I mean, I just mentioned the Lakers, obviously, with a guy like like Anthony Davis, what the guy like Ah, Dwight Howard, guys like that on the team and how they're playing well defensively and how they're really stacking up against the rest of the Western Conference.
You look at a guy like Clint Capela, and if the if the Rockets want to do any kind of noise, make any kind of noise this year, they're going to need Clint Capela to at least somewhat at somewhat, you know, manufacture, or at least even out the conversation around what is happening with the Big Man conversation in the West cause you need a big man to be competitive.
I just mentioned that ever nuggets Paul Millsap, lickle Yokich they got They got big men.
Looks like a paella got shaken up pretty hard.
That's that's what happened.
20 rebounds again by Clint Capela 20 days out for the game, but 20 rebounds.
Let's see what happened here. He went up.
Oh, yeah, I know.
He's a concussion protocol.
Ladies and gentlemen, Green just Green just went in like it was 2005 football in decked him like he was Brian Dawkins.
Let's go, Let's go! No pads.
That's that John Lynch status right there.
That's that. That's that Brian dies that Ken Hamlin.
That's that man.
He came in like Ronnie Lott on a Sunday like man. He knocked him.
That's that's why Clint Capela went down.
That's why Clint Capela went down and object as a CZ green was going to the rack out of control.
Obviously a charge could have been a flagrant if it was college basketball, because they don't like it when you touch people's heads.
But oh, another time out.
Look at that guy's got to need more rest.
Uh, obviously another commercial break.
So you're wondering how I started the Hoopers log and how I started the podcast, right? Well, back in 2014 when my Spurs won the MBA championship in June of 2014 I started show called The Daily Craze, and it's crazy to think 2014 that was over five years ago.
June of 2014 was over five years.
It's wild, the thing and daily crazy.
I talked about everything sports.
I talked about all the things that were happening.
I remember when the the Kings won the Stanley Cup that year, they played the Rangers.
It was New York verse L. A.
And obviously Spurs and Heat.
It was a rematch of the 2013 MBA Finals and what had happened in my Spurs won in five.
And it was Oh my God, unbelievable was an unbelievable Siri's, um, the year before and then just 15.
We you know, our excuse me, 2014.
We've made LeBron cramp and we won the finals.
And so when we did that and we got it done, I tried talking baseball.
Obviously, the World Cup was going on that year.
I was trying to talk more, woke up.
I was trying to make the daily crazy thing where I would talk all sports all the time.
I also then took the daily craze all the way until about January 2015 and I talked college Bass, college football.
Uh, I talked NFL.
I talked all these other sports that I wanted to discuss, but all of a sudden, when basketball season came around and like October, I got this urge and I was like, Man, I need to do a basketball show.
I love talking about it and what's happening constantly within the game and seeing that and feeling that I was like, I gotta feel this. I got to take it out.
And so I went from doing the daily craze to making the Hoopers log in December of 2014 which is now coming up on five years from now.
We're getting close.
Five years from now, we're getting real close to the five year anniversary of the Hoopers like which is what? I'm gonna end it, Unfortunately, but I will be doing stuff you're on SportsCastr as much as I can.
I can't promise you'll be on all the time, but I'll try to do as much as I can to do it under review thing.
They're trying to see if Green went in and tried to kill Clint Capela.
All this stuff, all this barbaric b s that they want you to believe that's happening in the n b.
In the world, it's not that big of a deal.
It's just Let's move on.
Let's play. He went in for Iraq.
He lost the ball.
He put his body in the air.
These air 69 gargantuan human beings the size of frickin Eiffel Towers and an Empire State Buildings.
They're going to make this move.
They're gonna They're gonna have it happen.
He dipped his shoulder a little bit.
Iate Clint Capela It is what it is.
It happens. He's fine.
Move on. That's my thought process.
I don't understand why we need to overreact. 20 brothers.
What's gonna say sorry? Listening to Tony brothers.
So it's not a challenge or anything.
Okay, so they're just trying to figure out what happened there challenging.
Ah, flagrant. They're challenging.
What's that yet? Doc Rivers is like, I got to be kidding me.
What happened to my M B A.
Whatever happened, what happened to my m b A When I played in the eighties and we, you know, we went across the lane and we got clotheslined and hit her head on the floor and woke up and didn't remember what happened three seconds before.
Like what happened to my MBA? Okay, 4 30 to go in the fourth quarter.
Harden and Russ doing screen and rolls off the top.
Here comes hardened, Triple teamed in the lane op.
Oh, my God! That superstar! Superstar Move! Absolute superstar! Move over, Kwai.
Lay up in the lane off this left hand, Wrap around.
Lay up Four minutes to go.
Houston is now 86 87.
We're getting crunched on people.
This is crunch time right now, Lou Williams, Stop the chaos! The rivers on.
I'm taking it to his left off the elbow.
Lou Williams Professional score.
Missed it left off the rim.
Rebound by Tyson Chandler.
19 year pro, Nearly his oldest Tice.
Oh, here comes James Harden from 90 feet.
Ah, James Hardin Lez Go! That's the 2018 m v P.
Putting it down from curry range 35 feet out.
Let's go 90 86 Houston said.
You ain't coming into my building.
Oh, he took like nine steps before he shot that stone in slap A Let's go.
Boom, Beard Year.
Let's go, James Harden getting it done in the clutch.
Is that another time out? Is that another time? Oh, look at that.
Another time out.
They played for two minutes and their legs hurt already.
Okay, See, this is why it's hard to not be sarcastic about the MBA.
Sometimes you sit here, you watch the game, you watch what happens.
You watch what's taking place, and the next thing you know timeout like Come on, man, like G's like it's crazy when you watch other sports and you watch how they put themselves together and how they ultimately how they ultimately put their body on the line like hockey, football, all these other sports and then you watch the MBA, and it's like these dudes take a time out, especially in this fourth quarter.
These dudes take a timeout every every other two minutes, it seems like, or if there's a foul, they get a break for a review or or if there's an out of bounds, or is it something like, it just gets ridiculous.
I don't understand why that has to be the case constantly.
Clearly, if you're watching this right now, I'm behind compared to what you're watching right now, we're in a time out.
Clearly, the Clippers just scored its 90 to 88.
Or if they didn't, I don't know the scoreboards.
Changing announces 86 again.
I don't know what's happening.
Clippers got the ball 90 to 86.
They're down by 43 50 to go.

Shoot it back out.
P. J. Tucker. Ms.
Russ gets another rebound, probably triple double.
Although he's like four of 19 for the night.
Or like six of 19 for the night, he's not playing very well.
Hardened from the outside, he's got Patrick in his grill.
Oh, this is a magic we want.
Oh, skip to my Lou backwards.
Oh, gets the brick, though.
Bricks the shot.
Clippers You're the ball back 3 15 to go.
Lou Williams crossing half court as we speak.
Popping up in front of Tyson.

Goes up with a beautiful up and around, making 88 to 90.
Houston now 90 to 88 3 minutes to go.
Houston has the ball.
They're going to take their time as they should.
Russ is going to get set in the offense. Now.
This is where Russell Westbrook generally struggles.
This is where why does hard and not have the ball? Why are you banking on Russell Westbrook to make place? Also ever visible up.
Tyson Chandler volleyballs it back out to 40 to go 10 seconds on the shot clock hardens.
Got it from 90 feet out. Half court.
Now Russ has got it.
Dribble, dribble dribble, dribble, dribble on Pat Bev.
Why again? Are you banking on Russ to do this? P. J.
Tucker Floater in the lane.
Got it off in time, though. Barely.
******* gets the rebound to 25 left to go in the game.
You got Lou Williams, Montrose.
Harold's coming down the court.
Pass the ball to the corner.
Pat Bev's got it.
70 seconds on the shot clock to 18 to go.
Now Lou Williams got it up to top the key with about 10 seconds on the shot clock to 10 left.
Got at Montrose.
Harold's coming up, passing it, passing it around.
Playing wheel CO.
I Leonard off the top.
Mrs Short on the three from the top left.
Houston got the rebound.
Tyson Chandler, 90 to 88.
US servers. Got two minutes to go.
17 seconds left.
Now we have Russ has got the ball in his hands with two minutes to go up to.
They're going to really slow.
They're taking their time.
They're doing what they need to do.
I don't understand what happened.
What happened? What happened? Oh, did someone get fouled away from the ball? Oh, and Pat Boone fouled out.
Well, what happened? Here we go. Here we go.
Okay. So, Pat Bob getting in.
James Harden getting in his way.
Coming down the core in his way.
Oh, they called it on Pat Bev a foul away from the ball under two minutes.
So that's hard and going to the line.
Rockets up 90 to 88.
Going the line a minute.
Probably gonna sing both of them to make it 90 to 88.
My scoreboard says 95 to 88.
So clearly I'm behind.
Clearly, something just happened.
Rockets are on my side. It says 95.
Looks like that.
Looks like the Rockets are gonna go up bigger than that.
Something big's about to happen for the Rockets, as I can tell, is I'm recording this game and talking to you about it.
But yep, he makes both of them.
Montrose gets the ball.
Gets it to Kwai Minute.
Rockets ups up for less than two to go.
Kawai is taking it down the court.
Here we go, Montrose.
Harold's got the ball.
That you have now You have Lou Williams Williams dribbling out the core up, up, left, left side, Mrs It off of Austin Rivers.
Here comes hard and got the rebound minute.
40 to go 92 to 88.
Now this is what you're supposed to.
Chandler gives him the pick. Play.
Oh, and Hardened gives him the ship. Me.
Let's go, Let's go, Let's go! 95 88 minute.
Let's go! That's the M V P.
Right there, ladies and gentlemen, that's the M V P.
That's the beer, baby.
That's the beard.
Gives green the shimmy with the body.
Gets it off the three.
That's what you do.
That's what you do right there.
That's why I want an M v p.
Ladies and gentlemen, James Harden.
This man is a bad, bad man like That's Always do.
Does his ball 95.
That's why it's 95 88.
That's why there was a time out.
Ladies and gentlemen, 95 88 minute.
Oh my God! This dude's cooking! 42 points.
12 of 26 from the floor.
See this? This If the if the Houston Rockets operate in this manner.
Not to say it's it's a frickin November game.
First of all, Like I said, it's a November game.
But if the Houston Rockets, when they come down the stretch of ball games, can operate where they allow us to play conservative moments of the fourth quarter in a close, tight match up, then in regards to when they need clutch baskets and when they need their main guy to score, James Hardin will be there to give you the moments that you need to take the lead.
Toa win your games.
Fifth game of 40 plus points for James Harden leads the league.
Just saw that on ESPN.
Obviously taking that from them.
I think they just got a technical for Patrick Beverley from not mistaken.
So Houston's gonna shoot another free throw.
I think that might be James Harden.
Yeah, I'm gonna shoot the free throw for the for the for the technical foul Pat Bev Man.
Sometimes you just gotta lay low, but I again, like I said, if the Houston Rockets can operate like this, where they allow us to do the conservative stuff late in games and then let James operate the way he normally does late in the game, where he's the one who controls the ball and then allows for the rest of the team to get involved.
That is how the Houston Rockets can find a way to find themselves in a deep playoff run.
That's how they can make it happen.
They can't let Russ try to operate and dominate late in the game.
You're not going to win games that way. It's not going to happen.
It's just not also, if you wanted to ask me questions on what I do, why I do this.
This is, you know, for the lead.
Supports me dot com Christie L S M.
If you want, you want to ask me questions, please feel free.
I will answer them.
I will stop looking up with the screen and not being interactive and having my mike in my face.
If you put there and and ask me a question on something, I will find a way to answer it for you.
So 96 88 minute, 31 to go.
Now it's an eight point ballgame with a minute.
30 to go where it was a real close game.
In fact, the Clippers had, like, I had, like a one or two point Leo.
Now Doc Rivers is getting upset at midcourt.
Oh, Doc Rivers is getting upset.
Here we go, Here we go. The drama.
The drama of the n.
B A. Here we go now. Docks ****ed.
Yeah, we had Austin Rivers.
Oh, that's good stuff.
That is awesome.
Austin Rivers was asking for them to tear up his dad.
That was That's that is gold.
Ladies and gentlemen, that is gold.
That is going to be a top 10 performance right there.
A top 10 moment right there.
Austin asking for his dad to be teed up.
I love it. That's fantastic.
He's called Ha ha! They're so competitive.
That's great! That's beautiful.
And then Harden is gonna shoot another free throw slap of 97 80 A.
It's I think it's all but over, folks, if you've got questions again, we got about a minute 30 to go.
It's looking like this game will be over. That's awesome.
Rivers asking for his dad to get teed up and then telling him to go home.
88 at saying 98 91.
Here, apparently somebody hits the three.
Probably gonna be real quick.
Who knows what's gonna happen? I don't know.
But again, if you have questions, feel free to shoot him up.
Goodwin for Houston.
They're gonna go eight and three.
Looks like this game's over.
They're gonna go eight and three on the season.
Ah, Clippers Gonna drop seven and four.
Obviously, we know about Kawai and is resting, and Paul George is coming back, so they're gonna have a brand new things start in here real soon with everything going back to the way it should go.
I shoots it out, passes it out to corner green shoes.
There it is. There's the There's the lead. 98 91.
Looks like Houston's gonna score to here in just a moment.
Probably be hardened.
Hardened as the ball Minute.
14 or 15 minute. 13.
Oh, ball, Bounce, stop up.
Russ got it before went out of bounds 98 91 107 to go.
Russell's got it.
This isn't really a clutch moment anymore.
So for us wanted to actually do something, it wouldn't matter.
Less than a minute.
Pat, Babe, Just shout it out to the corner mantra is Herro blue? Well, yeah, This game's over.
This game's over. Yeah.
Oh, stop, Kawai.
You got a little in involuntary elbow, and now you're upset.
How about you go rest tomorrow? That's what's gonna happen.
That is a sick Listen, that alley oop was nasty.
Go watch that highlight reel.
That was beautiful.
That was absolutely, beautifully at 191.
They're just gonna run this out, Lou Will is gonna throw the ball up.
Yeah, this game's over.
Houston Rockets get the victory. 191.
That was a really good game down the stretch until obviously, all the fireworks showed up in all the fireworks occurred.
So I hope you enjoyed me doing my play by play yelling, screaming, talking about whatever you know, here on doing a little SportsCastr conversation, I'm probably actually gonna jump off this one, do my own in a moment and talk about other things in the world of sports.
I want to talk about college football real bad because I love college football.
Listen, I'm making frickin right now.
Right now in my backyard.
I got a freakin ah, if I could show you its It's like it's like seven Eastern Pacific time here, and it's frickin darkest heck out there, so you can't see it.
But I got myself a little turkey bowl field set up right now.
