    It’s encouraging that even with as poorly as we played over games 1 and 2, we are just a couple of bounces from being up 2-0.

    I just don't get this. We shoot the ball just like our team wants us to. Take mainly 3's. Our guys shot as well as the Warriors from behind the arc. Some of our role players had higher percentages than our stars and their stars. The difference was that their guys run in and layup too. Our whole team has been molded to pass back to James and watch him dribble to death in ISO. When James is out it changes some, and you actually see other guys play ball instead of standing in wait. We would beat them easily if we just mixed it up more and didn't do the same thing every game.

    One more baby.
    One step at a time.
    I’m in Vegas and watched the game at The Wynn’s sportsbook. I was probably the loudest dude in there but there were enough Houston fans. Though some could have just had money on them.

    defence and rebounds are important to get the win in Oracle. Warriors does not have center, just go into the paint area for shooting

    I truly think we have found our groove. we have made adjustments in game 3 and more noticeably in game 4. like PJ and CP3 stated in the press conference, they wanted to push the ball more when Austin and cp3 are on the floor by putting pressure on golden state. we attacking the paint more and I believe harden is way more composed in game 3 and 4 and it'll translate to the reset of the series.

    Wouldn't be surprised at all if we beat them at home next game as we should and we will.

    Houston is going back to Oracle 2-2, but "who's counting"

    I see you @HP3

    Still won't stop, and may get worst, but you can imagine how much s**t I had to take when Raps blew out Philly in Game 1 and we lost ours.

    Our series or Raps?
    For our series, see my thread "3-2" http://bbs.clutchfans.net/index.php?threads/3-2.298512/
    Speaking only for Game 5. One step at a time.

    As for the Raptors series, unfortunately Toronto will definitely win that series. I have no doubt about that. They are definitely the better team.

    It must have been awful haha, my condolences. But forget that, just revel in the fact that you called this when we were down 0-2.

    Good call Z.

    We should be up 3-1, defending our NBA title.

    The only thing that can save the Worriers now is the League office.
