Basically, the Rockets came into the game super slack-sa-daisical and got down 20 to a Timberwolf team without four out of five starters – Nikola Pekovic, Kevin Love, Andrei Kirilenko, and Brandon Roy.
What happened was James Harden decided he wanted to ball out and took over the game, la de dahing himself to 37 points, with an assist from Jeremy Lin’s 24 points, 8 assists, and 4 steals.
So, I think JJ Barea is a pretty amazing player. At 5-11 and muscley, no real vertical (NBA-wise), a semi-set shot, and the guy seems to get into the point and score at will. If I could find video highlights of him from this game, I would embed. I would. Instead, I have to get dressed and go to dim sum.
