    I foresee a barrage of threes and a Rockets W.

    It's crazy after so many years of dominance the Spurs are in danger of missing the playoffs. Weird man

    Those standings are gonna change on an almost daily basis over the next month. There's nothing the Rockets can do about it. My only hope is we don't get stuck playing the Spurs(w/ Kawhi) or OKC in Round 1. The Clippers would be the perfect matchup and also a pretty interesting storyline. I wouldn't mind the Nuggets either, although given their remaining schedule, I think they'll be one of the 2 teams who wind up in the lottery.

    Kerr "i don't think it's good for the league to rest players against playoff teams"

    Both warriors and Houston can go through the nightmare of going through Spurs in first round (with a healthy Kwahi) and Thunder in the second round, it really is a coin flip right now..

    we should rest CP3 tonight.. I have a feeling EG does alot better when one of the two is out.. this could get his confidence level going.. Still Can't believe EG is averaging 19 ppg in 57 games played.. Have to be the quietest 19 ppg... he is basically right on par with Donovan Mitchell and Klay Thompson and yet no one one talks about him.. our silent assassin.. I'd love it if he finds his range in the playoffs and shoots 45%

    People who think James is boring to watch must not have seen the Spurs play in the last 20 years. I am looking forward to the most boring win of the season tonight. Go Rockets!

    Destroy the Spurs and make Beadle cry.

    That is all.

    I know the Rockets are the better team, but I am most fearful of the Clippers. They match up really well against the Rockets and CP3 has had his issues playing against his former team. Also, Montrez goes crazy balls against the Rockets.

    I'd rather the Rockets play Utah or Denver honestly.

    they can compete if 1 of Harden or CP3 is out which is how they managed to beat us twice, but if both are healthy and playing then they’re a pretty easy matchup

    their best offensive weapon is Lou Williams, and DJ can be taken out of games with hack-a-DJ...Trez is meh, his lack of defense and rebounding would get exposed in a playoff series...they’re pretty much just a team of nice role players, and there’s nothing intimidating about playing on the road at Staples Center in the playoffs

    Utah has the 3rd best defense in the NBA and a great home crowd, and Denver can be tough at home although I’m not worried about them either

    Exactly. Keys to victory are defense, rebounding and shooting. Defense will take the Spurs out of their sets, and make it harder for them to recover. Don't underestimate them, and remain focused throughout the game. Go Houston Rockets!

    Pop needed to remember what lent him all his scucess in the first place, using D-Rob's injury to tank for Tim Duncan.

    He should have thrown this season and gotton Ayton/Doncic/Bagley instead of being mediocre.
