    this is basically an elimination game.

    hope d'antoni has made some adjustments and the role players can make some shots.

    If y’all think the Rockets are getting swept what are you doing here? We are winning tomorrow and we are taking one over there too.

    To be honest, i was surprised the Rockets shoot well against the Hampton's 5. Next time, it might be a struggle. Especially when you're preaching about not doing ISO much. At least their only chance is ISO.

    What sucks is that Golden State employed our defensive plan. They switched nearly everything. We iso'd Curry repeatedly and Harden and CP3 had no problem scoring on him. The problem is that Golden State is shutting everyone else down, playing the passing lanes. Meanwhile, we can't guard them the same way because their shooters are better and they have three major scoring threats that can score 20+. Plus, their ball movement is something we can't emulate because we don't have passing threat outside of Harden/CP3 while they have two extra passers in Green and Iggy.

    In the long run they will wear us down. We need to improve defensively. If we can get stops we can hopefully get something going in transition. I'm not counting on us hitting contested threes. We've been a poor shooting team thus far in the postseason, not reason to expect that to turn around at this point. It's definitely an uphill battle.

    Just stay the course shot better. Defend harder. I said it from the beginning this is gonna be a make or miss series. Durant gets shut down ariza n crew ain't gonna let that happen. When he gets shut the warriors gonna be shooked

    I like SAS rebutting the Sportscenter commentator comparing our game 1 performance to the Cavs in game 2, calling such a thing "disrespectful".

    Celtics were like the Warriers in Game 1, whenever Cavs came close, they pulled away.
