    I know, playoff floor seats are a premium for ballers. He's losing some luster

    Great close out game last night. Looking very forward to see who we face in the second round.

    Go Rockets!

    Durant has showed up these Playoffs and he's got Draymond Green to set the screens for him. That alone is an overwhelming thought. Rest assure nothing is easy for this Rocket Squad.

    I was like, it's pretty rude to call someone's wife a wide receiver. Then I saw Dre...

    Love seeing Jason Verlander coming in from pitching a great game and showing up to support the rockets.. and bringing his celebrity girl friend along for the ride.. I really want to start seeing some celebrity Houston rocket fans show up like Beyounce, JayZ, James Parson and so on.. Parsons is a huge rockets and especially a huge Hakeem fan.. he made a youtube video appealing for D howard to come to houston a few years back.. come on Shelden we need you.. we need some bazinga power.

    One thing that hasn't been mentioned is the relatively high number of steals the Rockets had as a team. If their bight caught the ball and brought it down, they were susceptible to get pickpocket.

    I credit this to CP3 who has always tried to snatch the ball from centers and PFs.

    We are likely to play against the Jizz, so the same tactic can and will be used against Gobert and Favors.

    Conversely, we don't have to worry about turnovers because we never pass the ball to Capela.:)

    I partially agree with your statement. A hot shooting team with good defense is what we need, but Moute brings us extra defense. We would need him against OKC, and perhaps even against the Jazz. I wouldn't rush him back though, once he gets the clearance to play. Easing him into
    the team would be more prudent.

    Let's hope for the best.

    I agree. You don’t want Luc’s first game to be against the Warriors (I know I’m looking ahead :)). You want him to have a little rhythm and get his legs under him first.
