    Lose this and the series is basically over. Would be a colossal disappointment. Hope they bring it.

    Rockets 104-98.

    A must win. Lose this one and it's likely the series doesn't return to Toyota Center.

    Must Win. Need to double LMA and make Lillard play D by having him switch from his man to Harden.

    Rockets win by 20.

    DMo and Daniels come off the bench with the spark.

    I still think you gotta go with the 1 on 1 approach and stay home on the 3 point shooters. I just don't trust our ability to double and then rotate and recover. I still expect LMA to score, but just gotta hope it's not like he did last night. Last thing we want is for that team of 3 point shooters to have wide open looks, you give them that and they will start to hit them eventually.

    Start with the TT, hope they don't get in foul trouble and Let's go to Portland tied 1-1

    The single win that Portland had over us during the regular season, LaMarcus Aldridge went off. Just as he did last night and secured his team the win.

    I expect our stars to get back to their regular form and for Aldridge to fall back to Earth.
    Hopefully refs won't try and control game from the onset.

    This is one of the toughest places to win a game in the NBA. The rockets have a 60% chance of winning imo.

    If they lose, stick a fork in them.

    I thought it was an away game for some reason. Rockets should win.

    Going to be an easy win. LMA will get his but as long as he is less than 45% FG% we should be fine.
