    This.

    There is no added drama to this series in that we would have swept the Jazz with a healthy Capela. If his blood-shot red eyes meant anything, Capela was very sick.

    If it is indeed GSW in the next round, I don’t see this team losing any focus. I think they’ll be laser focused and dialed in right from the tip. They may go cold on offense from time to time and may lose some games, but it won’t be cuz of focus.

    Now if it’s the Clippers, then yes, I can see lose some focus.

    HARDEN HAS TO GO FOR IT AND GET IT. Can't stand his passivity at key moments.

    Where the **** did Shump go? Played 17 mins in the first two games and then zero for the last three. Maybe MDA had a game plan to rest him the first round so he can be glued to Klay in the second round

    Yeah it was pretty sad. Felt like a regular season game.

    Because he trusts House and Green more. And you know what? D'Antoni's instincts were right. Green had those 2 huge 3-pointers in the 4th quarter of Game 3 and House was terrific in the 3rd quarter of Game 5.

    Seeimg Trez give GSW trouble like this makes me hope MDA is watching and will play Faried constant minutes. Golden State seems to have problems with hustle guys like this

    I thought our best starting line up this year was Paul, Harden, Clint, Tuck, and Faried. It also upgrades the bench with Gordan.

    Shhhhhhh....
    PLEASE keep him nailed to the bench. He's been a negative factor since we've had him.
    Can't shoot. Can't really defend. Commits dumb fouls. No thanks

    The first play of the game was an adjustment to Gobert's defense. Terrible "fan". :rolleyes:

    i wonder if shump gets a chance now at green's spot minutes. Bc green has been pretty cringeworthy. his defensive rotations have been a mess and obviously struggling with his shot.

    nah what we're talking about, that's not called venting.

    that's no fan. that's just called bitching and being a crybaby

    Agreed. Their defense might have been the toughest of all the first round teams.
    It was good trial by fire and it should help the Rockets raise their game for the rest of the playoffs.
