Post-Game Grades: Rockets Light a Fire on the Pacers

postgamegrades_inpost-e1386598798950

The Good – David West turned grown men into middle-school boys while breaking up a scuffle.

The Bad – Does anybody want to guard James Harden or Dwight Howard? No? Okay. Does anybody want to defend the three-point line? No? Okay. Does anybody want to play good basketball? No? Okay.

MVP – I think James Harden said this, “I embrace y’all with napalm, blowed up, no guts left, chest/face gone.”

LVP – Do I get to pick ‘five’?

X Factor – I actually laughed when I first typed out ‘X Factor’. Besides the laughable jump pass, I like when Rasual Butler gets minutes. He’ll make a three-pointer and doesn’t get in the way.

Agree? Disagree? Yell at Jalen Bishop on Twitter @jalen_ny
