How The Bucks Shut Down James Harden With A Unique Strategy

  • Published: 02 April 2019
  • To Increase your Bball IQ:

    The Bucks defend Harden unlike any other NBA team. They force Harden to his right and rotate to prevent layups. They are willing to give up 3's to players such as P.J. Tucker and even Chris Paul to slow down Harden's stepback 3. Give Coach Budenholzer a ton of credit to defend the Rockets this way.

            They didn't even shut him down tbh. It's just that harden has somewhat of a low iq in situations.

                Funny how Harden left playing alongside Westbrook. They are very similar. Neither of them cares about winning, are disengaged when playing off the ball and are only concerned with individual accolades. Is it a coincidence that neither are champions despite being phenomenally talented.

                                      Thanks for putting the AD at the end of the video. I feel like if it's a great video, I'll want to stay for the AD. None of that bullshit with a 5 min long AD before the actual content starts. Great video by the way.

                                                      It has a lot of holes better guard him straight up with a taller player assigned to him rather than forcing him to his right exposing so many holes.

Eric Bledsoe is one of the few perimeter guys who has the strength and quickness to at least disrupt him and also if he plays him to force him right ... forcing him to drive ... you have any combination of Giannis, Middleton , Lopez , Snell iyliasova and mirotic all 6 ft 7 + and lanky ... to bother not only his floater but the lob to Capela or Fareed .... the bucks can make this work but nobody else ... he ll torch them as he did against Utah .
