James Harden's contested 3-pointer with 2.7 seconds left in overtime put the finishing touches on an improbable win over the Warriors that saw him end his night with 44 points, 15 assists, and 10 rebounds.
Harden has recorded at least 35 points and 5 assists in Houston's past nine games.
Harden, 29, had his fifth straight 40-point game as he led Houston to the overtime victory Thursday. "It's simple as that", said Harden about people critical of his playing style.
The Golden State Warriors sharpshooter said his team failed to deal the finishing blow and lacked the "killer instinct" that makes teams so unsafe when up big and early. "And we'll see. Game on".
Herein lies the problem with the play of James Harden. He's pulled down double-digit boards in two of the past four games and handed out 6-plus assists in four straight. Klay Thompson, when he broke Stephen Curry's National Basketball Association record with 14 made 3-pointers earlier this season. Among the NBA's all-time leading scorers, Harden's career 23.5 ppg scoring average ranks 21st and his 16,951 points ranks 96th.
The Warriors were relatively successful with their top priority of defending Harden, which was to limit his trips to the free throw line.
Danny Kanell was joined by guest host Brady Quinn on Friday's "Off the Bench" podcast where they broke down Harden's ridiculous level of play and his clutch shooting before diving into comparisons to last season.
He also has 13 double-doubles on the season, tying him with Jrue Holiday for the third-most among guards.
Whereas Harden's usage sat at 36.2 percent in the lead-up to Paul's injury, it's spiked to 42.9 percent in the games since.
But, the Browns had possession of the football late on and were edging ever-closer into game-winning field goal range. Mayfield also dropped a ideal 38-yard strike over the shoulder of Antonio Callaway on the four-play drive.
When Sadio Mane hit the post, City defender John Stones' attempted clearance went straight onto goalkeeper Ederson's head. "These chances do not come along too often, you win it one year, and the next you're blown away in 10 games".
The close approach came a half-hour into the new year, and 3 ½ years after New Horizons' unprecedented swing past Pluto . That will change as later images, taken at different angles, are sent back, Moore said.
The company said it delivered 63,150 Model 3s in the quarter, falling short of FactSet estimates of 64,900. The news also comes as automakers and analysts expect U.S. new vehicle sales to weaken in 2019.
Green, meanwhile, expressed optimism that both he and Leonard experience a positive reception in their returns to the AT&T Center. Leonard sat out all but nine games last season with a right quadriceps injury that first flared up prior to training camp.

Troy Tulowitzki, Yankees Agree to Deal
The deal for the free agent infielder was reportedly too good to pass up for the Yankees as it was a win-win situation for them. Tulowitzki played in just 66 games in 2017 for the Blue Jays and not at all last season after undergoing surgery on both heels.
