    We now have two killers on offense in the Beard and CP3. In clutch situations in years past teams could focus on stopping Harden but those days are long gone. My question is Rockets down by 2 with 7 seconds left to play. Who do you feel more comfortable handling the rock and ultimately taking the final shot and why?

    Chris Paul is one of the most clutch shot makers in the league.

    doesn't matter because this isn't something you decide no matter the situation. it's always game based. and adding melo makes it that much more true

    D'Antoni will chose whoever he want, simple. He has 3 options to choose :))

    Harden has the ball in his hands...

    The open guy takes the final shot...

    Bobby Brown. He will have the ball in his hands during the final minutes when the Rockets are up 20+.

    Current 3 options are:
    • Harden
    • Paul
    • Whoever is open.

    Harden, Chris Paul is the passing one.

    Or Gordon, any shooter. Even dump it to the big guy, Nene and Clint ala DeAndre Style.

    Harden hasn't learned to not play for the foul in the closing minutes. The refs are inconsistent. When they randomly choose to swallow their whistles Harden struggles to adapt. Because of that I'd let Paul create the last look.
