    I was yelling at them to guard Danny Green. If they kill us, it will be him.

    This is definitely fun to watch. It reminds me of MDA’s first season when the offense was fast paced and there were open looks all over the place.

    It would be his wet dream to play in this offense. Any guard would love it. Those that say otherwise are hating.

    TNT is having fun mocking the Rockets. I hope we have the last laugh,

    Lol at these guys are pretending like AD's a Shaq like monster. Size doesn't mean anything when you're a pussy made of glass.

    that’s something I’m worried about.

    rebounding requires jumping and so does a 3 point shot

    The Lakers only have two more attempts than the rockets overall so the graphic about the frontcourt having 10 more shots is useless.

    I hear you...I'm concerned about what happens when we are not hitting 53.3% on 3's.

    Yes this TNT halftime show analysis is horrible, even for their standards. “If the little guy keeps taking blows from the big guy he’s eventually going to get knocked down.” That analogy doesn’t make sense. If anything the heavyweight is going to get tired if he can’t knock the smaller guy out.

    And acting like they are getting all these extra shots.

    2 more field goals and 1 less free throw in a tie game.

    No Westbrook outplaying Kuzma. No talking about how Covington is already showing what he can bring. No talking about how we're NOT being blown out, despite the Lakers' abundance of height. And all that, with Harden not at double digit scoring, yet.

    Instead, the score is 63-all and "small people will be chipped away at by big people," completely disregarding Davis walking off the floor with another injury.

    The TNT guys always touch around good points... but are too dumb to bring it home.

    The 3 point percentage will be key.

    not the other team getting twenty more shots. Cmon Kenny that’s moronic. The Lakers have all of 2 more shots at halftime. The Rockets are hoping other teams get more two points shots. They’d rather win the 3 point shot volume game over and over.

    the question is will the chip away fatigue - the good point mentioned - wear them down? Or will the fact they can just keep rotating guys through now with more wing depth let them roll?

    All this talk about breaking down and getting beat up.

    Meanwhile, AD is the one who left the game holding his wrist.

    Rockets will be just fine, thanks for the concern Charles.

    Not bad... even better however is that the Lakers have only managed 4 offensive rebounds.

    TNT crew pre-game commentary: "There's no way this can possibly work. The Rockets are gonna get killed. This is silly."

    First half score, as the Rox work in a new player and a kind-of new offense against the league's #2 team on their home court: 63-63
