    We come out focused and with more discipline on both ends. We limit the offensive rebounds by GS.

    Durant goes for 43 and we lose by 4.



    Jk. I think we get back on track and make this series interesting. That’s not my homerism, it’s just that we have played horrendous over games 1 and 2, Paul and Capela have not been themselves, Durant has been insanely hot, and Iggy looks like he’s back in his Philly days yet we’ve only lost both games by 2 possessions.

    Better get it done at home. I can’t stand losing to this arrogant team 4 times in 5 years. Plus, the media doesn’t give us a chance at this point

    This is my first playoff series as an official Houstonian. It can’t be a sweep.

    Both games have been close. With a small bump in offensive efficiency and defense at home, this is extremely winnable. Hopefully Harden's eye is fine by Saturday.

    We are favored to win this game by 3.5 points. Let's get it done and go back to Oracle tied 2-2. I expect a barrage of 3 pointers going in on Saturday.

    I hope so. The Rockets lost Games 1 and 2 in the 2015 WCF by a combined 5 points. They lost Game 3 at home by 35 points. My fear is that the Warriors are gonna have one of those explosive nights where everyone's hitting their 3's. A good start to this game is a must. Stop playing from behind due to turnovers, offensive rebounds, and missed open jumpers.

    Rebound rebound rebound.

    Limit the turnovers, and we'll be good.

    In 2015 we had a couple close losses in GS and all of us expected to come out strong in Game 3. Instead, GS came in and embarrassed us. Don't let it happen again!

    I think you've got to play your best 5 as of the first 2 games against the Hampton 5:

    Curry - Paul
    Thompson - Gordon
    Durant - Harden
    Iguodala - Rivers
    Green - Tucker

    Mirror minutes:
    Looney - Capela
    Jarebko - Nene
    McKinnie - House
    Livingston - Green
    Bogut - Faried
