Before the Dallas Mavericks faced off against the Houston Rockets, Mark Cuban had some choice words for his in-state rival.
[The biggest difference is] practice time. There’s no more predictable team than the Rockets. You know exactly what they’re gonna do. But James Harden is so good. That’s what analytics have begot. Right? Predictability. If you know what the percentages are, in the playoffs, you have time to counter them. Whether you’re good enough to do it is another question. Because they are very talented, and James Harden, I think, is the MVP. Because that’s not a very good team over there
Houston eliminated Dallas in five games in the first round and now they’re in the western conference finals.
Cuban is now singing a different tune.
