One of the best wins of the season. We never gave up even without Harden.

Amazing 4th quarter to pull this W. Huge minutes by Clax, Blake, and Joe.

Gonna escape with this one. Hope nothing too serious for Harden

- regardless of injury severity we need to sit Harden for a few games.
- the non Harden minutes were fantastic tonight. Playing like we did in the first half of the season.
- said it before but I don't like the Harden ball dominant offense except as last resort. Guys lose energy on both ends when they don't get to touch the ball. No surprise Joe came alive tonight without so much Harden
- Claxton and Blake played the important minutes. That's gotta be the finishing lineup. I don't think DJ is interested in playing at the moment. No harm in trying some LMA once he's available.
- Kyrie was a beast

Yo Blake has been legit awesome for us. Like damn, it's a really nice luxury to have a big that can handle the ball, pass, and shoot.

And he's been playing some really good defense.

I don’t think they knew he was out until the 4th quarter.

Very much liking the Griffin and Claxton size and playmaking combo.

I tried to tell everyone he’s the Bosh we needed to this Big 3 concept.

I knew Blake had this in him.

Judging him off the Pistons was stupid. Basically been a 3 and D guy who makes smart players.

Him and Claxton also work great together.

I love being in first place, but the last thing we need is Harden's having a Hammy like Durant's.

PLEASE GOD don't let it be even nearly that serious. :o

I love having Blake as a high IQ roll/pop man on those PnRs and PnPs. The defense can’t just trap the ballhandler and he makes the right play when the ball comes his way off those screens.

Nothing else reported yet. I think the only "good" thing was that there didn't seem to be one moment where it was obvious that he had a hamstring issue while he was on the floor.

James looked ok from the bench. Hopefully tightness isn't that serious.

Those 3 games without Kyrie really killed him lol.

His passing was what I was most excited to see from him, but he's definitely been contributing more than just that. So far so good for him.

Blake has been excellent man. Really high IQ basketball. This team is going to be bananas when we have the full compliment.
