    For the first time in this series, from the tip, we're about to see a real hostile home court.

    Toyota Center, please observe and respond accordingly.

    PLEASE.

    if we sweep them.. they would go on and on about how our super team is, compared to a one man show of Westbrook.. Infact they will call the rox the firs super duper team.. How Pat Bev should we defensive player of the year in-fact decade, with a multiple all star players like Ryno, Gordon and Lou-Lou, a hakeem olajuwon incarnate in Capela.. and oh yeah with all this all star talent, Harden puts up nice numbers.. thats pretty much how the media will sell this crap.

    We haven't really played well yet and we're still up 2-0. This will be our best game of the series thus far.

    outside of the fourth quarter, wbrook was shooting extremely well. i hope he doesn't find his shot tonight.

    however, keep letting him shoot mid range. i'm fine with this.

    Sit Ryno and start Eric. Put up 40 in the first quarter and call it a night

    Line opened with OKC at -3, move to -2.5 and now only -2. Not that much faith by bettors that OKC can pull it out, even at home.

    I have a good feeling the Rockets score first with a 3 from Ryno setting the tone.

    If there is a time for our us to catch fire collectively it's tonight. OKC can play well but if we are hot like we are capable of it won't matter. Ryan Anderson I'm looking at you.

    The reason why we held him out during the regular season is because we needed him for the playoffs. That trend was only to keep him healthy for THIS exact situation. There is no way he's held out of either of these games.

    Rockets will play better off of the OKC crowd then the Thunder watch.

    Road Ryno pls

    Nah, but seriously, they're gonna come out guns blazing. I have a bad feeling we're going to be down 15 before we even get a chance to settle into our recliners. It's just a matter of whether or not we can battle back throughout the game.

    With that being said, I think we do.

    Rockets - 114
    Thunder - 107

    How come there is no option for close lose? Just like Game 1 in the regular season? I meant any case is possible.

    Can somebody track the win-lose record that we play on ESPN this season? I think we lost more games than winning, am I correct? :(

    Game 3 is the key game. A win we sweep, but a lost will be a punch in the nose that can mean a longer draining series.

    10/26 - at Lakers - L 120-114
    11/09 - at Spurs - W 101-99
    12/02 - at Nuggets - W 128-110
    12/09 - at Thunder - W 102-99
    01/18 - Bucks - W 111-92
    01/20 - Warriors - L 125-108
    01/27 - at Sixers - W 123-118
    03/01 - at Clippers - W 122-103
    03/12 - Cavaliers - W 117-112
    03/31 - at Warriors - L 107-98

    Unless I'm missing any, they've played on ESPN 10 times this season and are 7-3 in those games. 2 of those losses are to the Warriors and the latter was during Harden's wrist injury and on a brutal B2B(they played the night before in Portland).

    So the Rockets have no problem winning on ESPN, home or away.
