    Wow, you made me read that twice this morning. Too early for thinking and deciphering.

    Livingston is so washed and has been awful all postseason, him being on the court has only been good for us. But if he is out, their thin bench just got thinner. Who is gonna take those 13 minutes? They know Quinn Cook would get burned defensively, they might try more McKinnie or Jerebko? Or maybe they will just put an even heavier load on their starters who are already playing crazy high minutes.

    The Rockets need to be ready for a war tonight. Hoping they come out aggressive and keep that intensity up throughout.

    You want to beat the best, come out and punch these guys in the mouth and do not let up.

    We have to pretend we’re playing the Nuggets at home. Then we’ll be fine

    Kenny "the Jet" Mauer for game 5, Tony "Soprano" Brothers for game 6, And if necessary, Scott "Lang" Foster for game 7. Terribly predictable, won't even be surprised.

    I don't get the fear of Mauer on here. We can win playoff games with him officiating(Game 3 in Utah for example). Foster and Brothers are the automatic losses for the Rockets in the postseason.

    Mauer was the crew chief who rigged Game 6 vs GS last season

    the list of referees comes out every game and you'll never see some kind of praise for the names listed. not sure why anyone even bothers. even if it isn't foster, there's some kind of gripe on the others.

    Look, Game 6 was horribly officiated, but the Rockets were gonna lose that one regardless. The Warriors torched us after that hot start. Game 7 was the screwjob that came down entirely to the officiating(and CP3's injury). If Foster doesn't swallow the whistle late in the first half, the Rockets could've been up 18-20 points heading into the 3rd quarter which may have been too much for the Warriors to overcome.

    I am so anxious about tonight. I am not ready. I want Houston to win by 30.

    This was honestly worse than Game 7 in a lot of ways, just didn’t have quite the same level of stakes that Game 7 did.

    always felt the same way. the 2nd half officiating of this game was 2002 game 6 WCF level, as in the league office gave zero fuks about what anyone thought they were just going to hold onto their $$$$ for dear life regardless
