  • Dear precious friend, Jesus Christ is THE RISEN ONE who shines upon you always. Understand when you worship Jesus Christ you are worshiping a Living Deity, not an idolatrous man-made image. Your relationship with Jesus the Christ is meant to be vibrant and challenging as He enters more and more into your life. Do not fear change for it is He who is making you a new creation, with old things passing away and new things continually on the horizon. Embrace all that Jesus Christ can do in your life and find your security in Him alone. Receive Yeshua (Jesus Christ) this very moment as your Lord and Savior and be ready for a loving, miraculous and awe inspiring relationship that will span ALL eternity. ❤️❤️❤️ (John 3 : 16; Matthew 28 : 5-7; 2Corinthians 5 : 17)

  • #FearTheDeer

    • +ExoticPizza oh is the season over? Oh ok so Milwaukee isn't number one either oh ok just checking

    • +Scott Lawrence HAHAHAHA. They have Ben Simmons Embiid Fultz Jimmy Butler and JJ and they ain't number one in the east my guy y'all need to pay attention to watch y'all comment

    • 👀

    • +Nikhil honestly my friend I'm happy for Milwaukee they are doing great

    • +Scott Lawrence only time will tell

  • 7:32 was well worth watching.... The new league MVP has given the old mvp a little face-time.

  • Harden really using his head on defense 😂😂

  • Luca>harden

  • Of Harden don’t play D they going no where, o shit he doesn’t play D 😂😂😂 playoff Harden

  • Definetly had to watch 7:32 over and over a few times :)

  • nba finally jumping on the ximo pierto bandwagon.

  • *Harden takes 4 steps at **1:07*

  • Scary stuff

  • Bout time y’all ass do full games highlights

    • I agree. These highlights was better

  • without Harden, Rockets will be a skeleton like the Cavs. They can not have the luxury of resting him

    • Fumi Yama it’s the same thing with Milwaukee, but I see your point

  • It pains my basketball-loving soul that there are people who genuinely believe that Harden didn't travel at 1:07. Heaven help us

    • 3 *steps* mmmmmmm lmao

    • 3 steps isnt a travel if you use the last step driving to the basket.

    • +chris delo put it on slo-mo, he has his gather step, and after his hand is touching the ball, he obviously take three steps. Even a blind man could see it.

    • +chris delo please do this. I'm definitely a guy that will say I'm wrong, but if you slow it down at 0.25 he literally starts after the pick at the 3 point line and takes 3 big steps. If that first one is a gather every nba player needs to start doing this. Whether it's a gather step or not it's still 3 steps on no dribble and that's very beneficial lol

    • Harden is just so quick it may have looked like a travel but naa

  • Typical Greek freak... gets most of his points bulldozing his way to the rim because he has no jumper.. don’t ever compare this man to Lebron ever... Lebron worked for years on his jumpshot and it paid off..

    • +Willie Andrews are you in the nba though?

    • It's embarrassing that people cape for this guy, merely because he's positioned on defense to hug the low block & is in position for uncontested rebounds... and "shoots" a high percentage because all he can do is bulldoze to the rim.... Such a WEAK skill-set & PATHETIC jumper.

    • When LeBron came in the league he was bulldozing Thur people as well and y'all was putting him ahead of Kobe then so no the Giannis is doing it it's a problem. People are false

    • Wait are you saying Antetokounmpo isn't good?

  • 7:51 8 sec violation..

  • Brogdon is underrated second best player on the bucks

    • I agree, He's underrated, but Middleton is better.

    • Paris Frazier i used to think khris middleton forsure but this season brogdon has stepped up since he won roty and he’s the most efficient bucks player and still is scoring about the same as middleton and he’s also a good a defender

    • Ersan ilyasova

    • If they could only resign one though I would take Brogdon

    • Nah Middleton for sure

  • The bucks play lock down defense

  • Great comeback by the Rockets! But, you got to win it when you prove that you can erase a big lead like a champ!

  • Wait the NBA finally doing this edits now?? About time.

  • 7:33 first time i see harden did not flopped

  • Let’s go giannis

  • Lol harden got smacked

  • 6-16 shooting 3s SMH first round knock OUT

    • Yeah Milwaukee will probably be a first round exit

    • Bruh, that is 37.5% from 3 have you graduated fucking primary school? did you take all of your math class from fucking gym teacher? The league average is 35% from 3. So he is shooting well tonight from 3. and yeah looking at your fucking username, you must be a complete fucktard so no wonder you cant do math.

  • I can tell Houston got more Hispanics than whites cause the stadium always look empty,even during playoffs.

    • Joe D. I’m Hispanic and I like basketball as much I like soccer, sports shouldn’t be associated with race, which again makes your comment racist lmfao. And those were examples of stereotypical racist comments.

    • +Briezmann dude I said that cause Hispanics have a soccer culture, whites have a basketball and football culture, it had nothing to do with 💰. I'm waiting for my apologies, besides seems you're the racist cause think hispanics are poorer than whites and associating whites with gun violence and blacks with fried 🐔.

    • Joe D. Just the fact that you compared Hispanics with whites and assume that white people make more money then Hispanics the comment because racist. Im sorry im actually educated

    • Joe D. “ I can tell houston has more Hispanics then whites cause the stadium always look empty, even during playoffs.” Based off that comment you are implying that the rockets stadium is empty because there’s Hispanics can’t afford the stadium seats, and you compared them to white people so you’re saying white people make more money then Hispanics, and Hispanics dont make enough to afford a basketball ticket. Idk man that sounds pretty racist to me, and “stats and numbers” don’t prove someone is racist but rather what they imply. I can say “there’s so much gun violence cause there’s more white people than Hispanics” or “I bet black people love fried chicken” the latter comment was used to state that even when you state a fact (meaning that Hispanics MAY earn less $$$ then whites) it doesn’t mean that it wasn’t a racist comment.

    • +Briezmann please don't call me name. If you think what I stated is not true, explain yourself and show some statistics that prove me wrong, I'll apologise and delete the comment if the statistics are right, but just calling me racist that's very offensive.

  • harden 13-30 FG, 6-16 3pt FG low efficiency never shows in highlights.

    • cbenji07 not Harden’s fault nobody else on the Rockets stepped up. The Bucks just outplayed them regardless of their injuries.

    • and 9 turnovers. you know that's terrible

    • Missed his last 5 cuz he was gassed cuz he played 41 min including the whole 4th cuz no CP3 or Gordon.

  • 7:32 you're welcome EDIT: put it in 0.25x speed, it's even better.

    • GreenBayPackersGirl just what I needed to see

    • GreenBayPackersGirl 😆

    • that somehow was so satisfying, that I saw it like 20-30 times

    • Thanks

    • GreenBayPackersGirl thank you

  • Giannis humbled Harden inside his arena.

  • harden outplayed Giannis but the bucks played better than the rockets. this was such a sloppy game, both from the players and the refs. the rockets didn't look to be trying that hard until like almost 5 minutes left and couldn't hit a shot in the 3rd. the bucks kept making stupid mistakes. they had so many travels that they looked like they forgot they were playing basketball for a minute there. other than stupid fouls the bucks played better as a team and were able to hold on to their lead from Houston's dry 3rd. and Giannis played solid. the refs must either be really young, really old, or were just not good enough. they kept positioning themselves poorly, making bad calls and missing things that were actual fouls. it felt like they were just missing calls so they would just make "make up calls" for most of the game. some takeaways: bucks: they hung in there and a lot of the rocket's missed 3s were forced by their defense, they did a good job staying + in the scoring balance. they had some critical stops and conversions. on a more negative note, they looked more gassed by the end than the rockets. so they do need to work on their stamina a bit to be able to maintain that high level of defense for multiple series. Rockets: a real positive takeaway from that game is that they have flipped when harden spends most of his energy. before he would always play hard in the first half and then rest in the 3rd then play hard in the 4th. but he has been resting more in the 1st half and still tries to get some rest in the 3rd by passing more, and just sitting more. and then he uses more energy for the end of the 2nd when necessary, and he has been saving more energy for the 4th. in this game it looked like he turned it on a little too late. it actually looked like the rockets didn't take this game seriously enough, they seemed a bit surprised by the 4th. both by the bucks and by their shooting. they did start to get over that dry spell but it was just too late. they took too many 3s during that dry spell, and capela was having trouble with Lopez those tall tall guys can give capela trouble sometimes. and because capela couldn't make himself a force down low they had to shoot more mids and 3s and that combined with a bad shooting night had them out. harden nearly brought them back though which was pretty interesting, but they need a bit more consistent scoring when harden and cp3 are not on the court. harden pj tucker and green are all looking better than last year. tucker even got someone with a stepback, and man harden dropped like two or three guys.

    • +Reach Guard 9 turnovers my guy...

    • Harden outplayed giannis on offense, overall giannis had the better game.

    • Giannis outplayed Harden he was way more efficient and did much more that just score the ball

    • Nigga i aint finna read this whole paragraph lmao

    • Harden doesn’t play defense and had 9 turnovers. In no way did he outplay Giannis.

  • 7:33

  • One of the 3 dislikes is Harden

  • 7:32 flop to that XD

  • @7:33 Giannis said I'm the mafuckin MVP 😂😂😂

  • Bucks have now beaten every elite team in the league with ease. Most of them on the road too.

    • Rockets where short handed

    • +Ali A salty I'm sure you live in a dumpster

    • Bo Rood Milwaukee is in the trash pathetic state of Wisconsin.

    • They beat my nuggets to

    • Rashard cooper the Lakers are ass

  • This is why rockets wont win a chip ...its too much harden and not enough from everyone else ...same reason OKC wont win one

    • +datdude noah maybe the first year kd wasn't there but

    • +datdude noah yeah that comment he made didn't make much sense lol

    • okc has 4 consistent scorers if you count RW throw the ball in the paint steven adams will body his way toba bucket pg13 can score at will and dennis comes in when russell is tired so their offense is pretty consistent

    • usually they hit more 3s than that, and is why cp3 was so important to them. when all the shooters have an off day a star player's job has always been to take over, and harden has been doing that better than he ever has this year. he is saving much more energy for the end game this season like he has never done before. he even nearly brought them back, honestly the way his guys were shooting he probably should have even taken over a little earlier and more in this particular game. but overall harden is really good at spreading the ball around

  • BROGDAN EAT!!!! 🍛🍛🍲

  • 7:31 The best defense play Harden had this whole game

    • Cash Kesse I’m a rockets fan but that shit was funny

  • George Hill was intentionally trying to injure Harden. I completely lost all respect for him. If you watch Harden jump on his shots while Hill guards him, you see he alwaysss tries to slide his foot underneath where he thinks Harden will land. That's the old Bruce Bowen cheap shot. They should fine his bitch ass.

  • Great Win For Mil-Town...

    • +Nikhil Milwaukee, and it's also know as mill town because Miller light.

    • Mil-town?

  • James harden back gonna give out at the end of the year

  • When Did brandon knight join the rockets

    • I was saying the same thing.

    • Bucks were pretty good when they had brandon knight then they traded him got weak ass Michael Carter William and that season went down heel

    • What happened to Chriss? Haven't seen him play in a while.

    • Rockets traded Ryan Anderson and DeAnthony Melton to the Suns for Knight and Chriss this past offseason.

  • Milwaukee is the real deal!!!

    • +nahor88 well they ain't my guy. Clint is injured and Harden ain't winning MVP if he don't got CP3 or Capela and also stuck in the 5th seed in the west.

    • +Wuzi Mu stamina? Stamina my guy? If you say that like what? They could beat some of the best teams in the league and keeping up with them. We are number one in scoring and number one in rebounding and number 5 in assists. Stamina isn't a problem. Just staying balanced. Use Giannis. He's shut down which I do t think he can be kick out to the shooters Brook Lopez khris Middleton and Brogdon. So stamina isn't really a problem

    • +nahor88 Rockets are one dimensional!!! We know what Harden does in desperation games..He falls apart!!!

    • +Christian White yup, best record for a reason.

    • 普通话 lol

  • Tbh, I'm pretty sure the rockets are still exhausted from the GS game

    • Excuses excuses

    • ThePhantasticFule Didn’t stop them from dismantling the Nuggets though. 👍🏻 Still, they just played 9 straight playoff teams without Chris Paul. I’m sure they’re all exhausted.

  • Awesome gamed

  • 1:09 bruh James Harden traveled lamo

    • So whats the verdict here ? He travled or no

    • none name Nigga I get travels called on me even when it is two steps

    • +Wuzi Mu your right it's just those people who like to say harden is paying the refs

    • +neirad537 it doesn't matter that they're not played in 0.25x speed. The refs have a replay center, they can see the play in slo-mo. Imagine it's in that situation, would you agree with me?

    • +neirad537 yes, we're all agreeing with you on that. That's not issue. What we're trying to tell you is that after his hand Is touching the ball, you can clearly see, that he takes THREE steps after his hand touches the ball. it's obvious. For goodness sakes, put in slo-mo, you'll see it.

  • the NBA taking over highlight channels now?

    • I said the same thing as soon as I saw the vid in the search results! NBA must have figured out how it's being done and now doing it! lol

    • I hope they do, those niggas at MLG highlights who wear shades indoors are cringey af

    • Guess so, good. It is there right. It is their content so they should be the ones making money off it.

    • I didn't even see that

  • Not worried about the Bucks at all. If Capela didn't play like trash, if at least one of the role players showed up, and if Chris Paul and Gordon were playing, we would've won this game easily.

    • Scott Lawrence that’s allot of butthurt lmao

    • +Wuzi Mu Bucks scored 38 points in the 3rd and went on a 25-3 run to end the 3rd Gotta give them credit tbh

    • +Aaron Seidl 😘

    • +Aaron Seidl ahhh haaa, Milwaukee won't make it outta first round

  • Bledsoe is very good point guard

    • At times. Hes really a SG inna pg body

  • 7:32 James Harden got fouled, automatic 2 free throws.

    • That's not a foul my guy... Giannis just told harden that hes better at him in call of duty headshot! But seriously not a foul

    • Haha 🤣

    • Plus a technical
