    It's time to turn "Golden" State into a pitiful puddle, gleaming in despair.

    We have been preparing for this all season long. Glad we have made it through here everybody! What a Season.

    Now on to the big challenge. I think we are facing one of the best teams on history, which makes it double awesome, because its the toughest challenge ever, but also means the if we make it, whoa!!!

    That being said, best wishes to our guys:
    Capela please do everything to remain on the floor buddy, they will try to keep you away from the paint, you always have been able to keep tight with curry out there, but he has made some tough shots. This time will be different.

    Luc, Trevor and Pj will defend the hell out of the ball. And we need one game from each one.

    James and Point God do your freaking thing that you have been doing all year.

    And Gerald, I know we will have one game that will be yours, I would love for it to be at home, make it this one.

    I want to see the Rockets play like they're possessed. Rip the Warriors asses off the bone and feed them to the dogs. No more coasting.

    Must make a statement this game.

    Everybody is doubting the Rockets to even win 1 game this series. Win this game impressively and everyone shuts up.

    Would love to get both games here but we absolutely must get Game 1.

    If there was ever a game when everything clicks, would love this game to be it.

    Plenty of time to prepare for this game. How they come out will speak volumes on how this series will go. They are at a talent deficit and the only way they can make that up is by out working the Warriors. If they let Golden State match or beat their effort then this series will be over fairly quickly and it wont be in Houston's favor. They need to replicate the efforts they had in Games 3 and 4 against Utah and not what they had in Games 2 and 5. If they come out and play like they did in Game 2 Golden State will have a 25 point lead by halftime easily.

    They are going to need their shots to fall. Ariza, Gordon and Ryno who have all been relatively quiet this post season will need to come alive. Luc appeared to be returning back to form last night which was a great sign, because while he was playing in Games 1-4 he didnt look like he did prior to the injury. He looked a lot better last night. Tucker will have to continue his high level of play. Most importantly both Paul and Harden (esp Harden) cannot have lackadaisical low energy games. They are going to have to be locked in and focused every single play on the court.

    I cannot stress enough they absolutely cannot let Golden State out work them. If that happens there is absolutely no way the Rockets can win. We heard it plenty with Snyder and Thibs on how their margin of error playing Houston was razor thin. Now the Rockets are in the same boat. Their margin of error against Golden State is razor thin. Its paramount that they do not beat themselves.
