    They interviwed Chris Paul after the game and he was dissing Rafer. Apparently Rafer, Paul and Chandler were going at it before and during the game. Chandler and Rafer got into it in New Orleans when they both got a technical and it carried over to this game. There were a lot of heated exchanges and verbal jousting going on. It will be fun to hear what Rafer has to say.

    Skip Skip Skip doing it like he's in Queens playgrounds

    That likely explains the background behind Chandler being led from the court tonight after the game.

    Chris Paul was apparently x-rayed after the game.

    They said it's from carrying the team on his shoulders.

    Chris Paul sounded like he was about to cry in that interview. Rafer did not back down to CP3 and I loved every bit of that and T-Mac's 41 points.

    They cover the Rockets pregame, game (Gene and Jim) and postgame

    He basically was being really sarcastic and repeated that quote twice.

    I wish I can be half as good as Rafer or I hope I have half as good a career as Rafer

    I'm not saying turn the other cheek but it is important to be humble...no need to fire up the opposition...we need playoff tested fans and players. It is all mental & emotional when you're talking about the top 5-6 teams...
