    Russ is gonna have a bad shooting night ...Just my guess. Think the others show up. Still think the Thunder lose a close game.

    I want a clean sweep! That will also make the people who voted for Westi Brook give more thought to how they voted. Go ROCKETS!

    Game 3 opens at OKC -2 and Rockets +125 on the money line. As of now, it's been bet out to OKC -3 and +130.

    Before the series, I thought we would win in 5. Now, I see us sweeping these guys. Besides, if we drop one, it'll be real close. Getting 3 or more is a Swedish Massage.

    Hopefully the Rockets show up from the opening tip. The Thunder will be playing their asses off just like they did in Game 2.

    Foot on the gas, boot on the neck--do not give them any breathing room, any hope. Ryno(I think he makes a little over 18 million, can someone confirm?) needs to find his range for us to win.

    Rockets 120
    Thunder 108

    Ryno with a cool 26 points
    Harden drops 34

    Westbrook goes 12-39 from the field, but gets a triple-double so the media doesn't commit mass suicide just yet

    Cleveland and Toronto getting smashed... Worried about what might happen in OKC tbh.

    You know the league isn't going to let it's MVP get bounced out of the first round so easily.

    Our guys showed self belief despite being down for most of the game. This is a good sign for us, but we can't afford to be complacent. Defense, rebounding, and ball movement is key for us, from the opening tip. Ryan needs to have a big game, he should post up instead of only taking 3 pointers. Gordon, Lou and Bev need to continue with the good work. Nene is better than Capela, he needs more minutes. Harden needs to defend consistently. I think he won't get many calls at the FT line, but he needs to keep on attacking and setting up our shooters.

    Go for a win Houston Rockets! You can do it again!
