    Only way is through resale when not a season ticket holder, typically front row floor for a big game are hard to find. I have trouble even finding floor seats for Lakers on a regular season game. Best I can find is Row A, Row B right behind first row courtside. You can find on the player side behind the bench, seems to be more available. Those front row seats are usually die hard season ticket holders that would give the tickets away rather than resell. You have to be connected somehow to get the type of seats JJ Watt had just for one game.

    Stay close to them till the start of the 4th quarter. Fight their runs.

    Except for the elite teams, pressure usually gets to lesser players and they will start to miss shots they were making earlier in the game.

    Fighting an uphill battle at home and winning it was the best preparation for a game 3 on the road. Had we won running away the first 2 home games, I guarantee you that game 3 would have been a loss for the good guys.

    It will be a the first road playoff game this year. Hopefully our focus is strong, and Nene is well rested.

    Is Nene gonna be available in Game 4? It's a pretty quick turnaround going from 8:30PM Friday to 2:30PM Sunday.

    The Rockets' offense is not bad, they are actually playing well in this series on the offensive side. But they need to come up with a strong defense from the very beginning of the game. They can't have another meltdown like they did in game 2.

    Sounds about right. Refs will favor them. OKC huge home court advantage. Desperate team.

    Their offense is inconsistent and their 3-point shooting could be better, but they're averaging 116.5 points a game so far this series. That's higher than their regular season average. Limiting their turnovers has been a huge factor. They're averaging 12 in the first 2 games.

    There's no way we win tonight. All the teams up 2-0 have been blown out (negating the CLE comeback).

    It would be nice to steal one, but I think WB will be more conscious.

    We must start fast and be assertive. This Thunder crowd can be rattling.

    Spurs got owned last night. Although they blown out Memphis in the previous 2 games. So don't expect this game to be an easy one. However, please go for 3-0 Rockets!!!
