The Houston Rockets small-ball lineup is quietly working despite the constant jokes made by the national media. PJ Tucker, Russell Westbrook and James Harden have played into such doubters, going about their business and beating some of the league's best teams, such as the Lakers and Celtics. Despite that success, jump ball situations still work against Houston's strategy. Yet, on Monday night, James Harden actually won the tip over Knicks big man Taj Gibson, and he was incredibly hyped as a result.
While we're happy for Harden in this instance, but we feel just as bad for Gibson, who now has a brutal lowlight on his basketball resume.
Don't skip leg day, kids!
