    D'Antoni called this game "pivotal" and he's right. Win this one and this series likely doesn't go more than 5. Lose it and we're probably gonna need 7 to beat Utah.

    The Rockets need to come out just as focused as they did in Game 1. And the bench MUST be better. Our reserves were outscored 40-13 by the Jazz's. And that 13 points is including Green's 3 in garbage time. That's inexcusable.

    Jesus it was that bad??
    Why was Ryan so hesitant to shoot? Fight me, I don't believe in the home Ryno curse.

    Yes, it was THAT bad. Nene was horrendous offensively. Luc hit his first shot and missed his next 4(he gets a pass though for obvious reasons). EG missed all of his attempts(he did go 7-9 from the line at least). And Ryno missed his only attempt.

    It's frankly amazing to me that the Rockets dropped 110 on the Jazz with so little production from the bench. I guess we should be happy from the standpoint that the team can actually play better in Game 2. So can the Jazz obviously, but we're good enough if we're playing up to our capabilities to blow them out every single time.

    Exactly, I mean a win is a win in the playoffs but would be nice to have some quality production from the bench. Can't let Utah think they can hang with us offensively.

    Harden better not come out and start bricking in game 2. Whenever he goes off in the first game, he tends to follow that with poor shooting, and I just want to see Harden play great two in a row.

    The Jazz definitely played better in the 2nd half, despite our turnovers and atrocious shooting from EG.
    They mixed things up with hesitation dribbling, screens. Exum used his height/ length and got to the rim with ease.

    Look for multiple defenders on Harden. EG should look to shake his defender, shoot the corner 3, and attack the basket with the intent to pass to Capela. I would love to see Green attacking the rim too. Don't worry about Gobert. Dunk on him Gerald! That will make it easier to hit 3's too. Defense first all night long!
    If Chris and the rest of the guys play well, Harden's job will get easier, and victory shall be ours again.

    Go Houston Rockets!
