James Harden played the entire second half and energized a Rockets team that’s aimed toward one of the West’s final playoff spots by scoring 25 of those 37 points after halftime.

Hands down the worst team in the league. Every game they either come back from 20 down only to still lose by a couple or they blow huge leads and lose. Even with Love in there, they might have 7 more wins. I thought guys like Ellington, Brewer, Tolliver the last few years were bad, guys like Cunningham and others do not belong in the league and somehow all of these guys have played in MN. sad.

What a joke this coach is! It took him almost the whole game to figure out that he had to do something with James H. When he did finally decide to do something, he doubled with somebody that was guarding a good three point shooter He can't figure out that Dante C. can't hit the broad side of a barn. He can't figure out that Greg S. should be sitting next to him. Why does he even play these guys? He can't figure out what to do during dismal third quarters. I'm tired of the ineptness exhibited by both players and coaches.

Hey, the Steamer played a great first half and good enough overall game. Three blocks in the first half, a few baskets, no dumb fouls. I enjoy watching him more than Pek, as Mr. Muscles, has, I believe, three blocks for the whole season and gets his shot blocked one or more times every game. And Peterson called him a third string center! At worst, he's second string, and the last couple games he's filling in nicely for the slow, unathletic, lumbering, hopless, blockless, Pek. Go, Steamer! Go, Nuggets!

Ridnour shoots the light out first half, then coach sits him in second...??? where is Pek? where is Krilenko? where are the trainers? heck kolbe darn near breaks his foot and he goes for awhile, Harden limping around for weeks and he's playing hurt. no .this team has more troubles than mostly "D" league talent. and a coach the lives in us to be land.

The Wolves are just plain out manned period...Losing 4 starters doesn't just ruin the starting lineup...it ruins the bench also...thus the whole team. Take 4 of the top players off any NBA team and they would have a very hard time winning a game...Not much you can do about it...... once again, we wait until next year...

I wonder how the front office feels about that playoff pledge they made.
