    The Timberwolves are going down Wednesday night in H-Town.

    ... or for those that have a learning disability it’s about to go dine in H-Tine

    Go Rockets!

    End this and get 3 days(or more) of rest. And please don't play like you did in Game 5 vs Dallas or Game 5 vs OKC. Jump on them from the opening tip and demoralize them.

    Rockets need to come out and just end this series so they can work on the little things before the next round. If Luc is ready to go then figuring out what the best rotations will be. JJ and Green may not see any minutes if Luc and Ryno are both good to go. Thats a luxury MDA will have but there is no need to play extra games. The crowd needs to be loud from the get go.

    Thank God it's a home game so I won't have to listen to Ackerman anymore.

    I really hate his low tone when he says "splaaassshhhh"

    Crush them and let's start rolling. No more wimp ball, we need fifty point quarters.

    I don’t think I’m jinxing anything by looking forward to Utah. Hope the OKC series still goes 7 but prepare for Utah in 6. And Houston in 5.

    OKC was always going to have problems with Utah because Gobert was a matchup nightmare for Westbrook. Take away his finishing at the rim and what you’re left with is the most inefficient ball dominant guard in the NBA. Lillard experienced this against AD as well.

    Houston is battle-tested against those kinds of defenses. After Popovich exposed us last year we worked hard to develop an inside-out game using the midrange instead, if they’re going to give us those shots wide open.

    Factor in our superior defense relative to OKC’s and I like the Rockets comfortably.

    It’s a fine tine to leave me loose lips.

    Rockets have played at like their C level overall in this series yet they’re about to beat what would’ve been the 3rd seed in the West if not for Butler’s injury in 5 and have blown them out twice

    the defense has been championship caliber, we’ve just been waiting for the offense to catch up

    Crush them from the tip please. Even boring playoff games are fun for me.

    No need to let this go any longer. End this nonsense and get ready for round 2.
